"I can’t tell you how happy I am to have had this opportunity. It was truly a God-provided time.
Roberta S. (Houston, TX F.E.T.)

Three days of TPM Training

F.E.T. consists of two full days and two ½ days of intensive training, supervision, and mentoring in Theophostic Prayer Ministry under the leadership of Dr. Ed Smith (founder) and his son Joshua Smith. The training process is practical and "hands on” within a small group setting (16 individuals in total). Live ministry sessions will be modeled and demonstrated. Roll played, ministry scenarios and video demonstrations will be used to reveal common areas of concern, and up-to-date principles and techniques will be presented throughout the training in both lecture and discussion.

Personal Evaluation and Critique

Each participant will be afforded opportunity to facilitate live ministry sessions while being evaluated, mentored, and instructed by Ed Smith and Joshua Smith for the purpose of strengthening and improving the trainee's ministry facilitation expertise. The learning environment will be non-threatening and supportive yet probing and intentional. The overall objective will be to identify areas that need improvement in the trainee's facilitation, to reinforce his or her strengths, and to supplement and equip the trainee with good ministry practices. Each participant should leave the training with a new confidence and higher level of ministry facilitation expertise.

"My goal is to be an excellent facilitator who stays within TPM Guidelines, so working closely with Ed and Joshua gave me much more confidence as a facilitator. I was able to get answers about the process that will help me grow. I especially liked learning the refinements to the TPM process since 2007 which simplify the sessions.”
Kathy E., Executive Director, Serenity Retreat (Houston, TX F.E.T.)

Point to consider

If you are a part of a ministry team in your church or ministry center you might consider sending at least one person from your group (your best facilitator) to take this training so that they can come back and train and evaluate your group. This way the cost could be spread around to the entire group and all would benefit.
