Wintonbury believes strongly that the local church is charged with equipping God's people for works of kingdom service. To that end, we have two "schools" geared toward advanced ministry training:
Wintonbury School of Ministry (WSOM)
The goal of WSOM is reflected in its mission statement: Training Christ's followers in skilled servant work. WSOM is an opportunity to get some equipping right here at Wintonbury. Training by the church, for the church, in the church. Components of the three year program include: Coursework, Training, Mentoring and Practical Service. A new group of students begins the school each year. Note that WSOM does not offer degrees program but certificates of commissioning at Wintonbury. Visit the WSOM website download a brochure (below).
Wintonbury School of Discipleship Counseling (WSDC)
WSDC is a three year course for women only that is designed to shepherd/assist women to understand who they are in Christ, to help them establish their freedom in Christ and to equip them to share their freedom in Christ as they disciple other women.
