HERE’S HOW IT WORKS 1. A pastor identifies key men in his church whom he desires to mentor and train up as future elders and spiritual leaders. 2. He comes to this website and selects a 12-week course that he and his men would like to study. Each of them then sign up for that course through the website. 3. The course content from TMS is delivered to them in an online format that includes video lectures, class notes, reading assignments, and quizzes and tests. Each of the men is able to access the course content on his own, through his personal computer. 4. The pastor meets each week with his men to discuss all that they are learning from the course. A leader’s guide that includes discussion questions is provided by the seminary as part of the curriculum package.
