Good News Invades Earth - Part 2
- Revd Steve Clark
Part 2 of an internet based course on Christian Healing ministry
This eLearning course will help you explore some of the practical aspects of praying for others in a safe and effective manner. If you would like to take this course, you should have completed Good News Invades Earth Part 1, or a similar broad introductory event on Christian healing. As it is important that your church leader is aware that you are exploring this ministry, we will communicate to her/him that you have applied for GNIE part II.
This joint venture between Norwich Diocese and Crowhurst Christian Healing Centre will contain a range of inputs (text, sound, video...) and frequent opportunities to engage in forums and other forms of dialogue with other learners and with Steve and other facilitators who are experienced prayer ministers.
eLearning is a wonderful way to learn and the course will only require basic knowledge of computers but an internet connection is needed.
You can work at your time and your own pace and join in discussions of the teaching materials by writing your own comments or questions for other course members to respond to. There will be high quality facilitators who will help to stimulate the Forums (online discussions) and contribute to the tricky questions that will arise.
