Adult Ministries at First Family

Each fall and spring semester, we have a number of opportunities for adults to learn and grow in their walks with Christ. Below are opportunities we have coming up this fall 2019.

FastTrack 40 Minute Leader Training Workshop

The Free Precept FastTrack Leader Training Workshop is designed to identify and equip existing and future Bible Study Leaders who will lead others in Inductive Bible Study in the church, home or workplace. Even if you have had no experience leading a class or using the Inductive Bible Study Method, this workshop is suitable for you to learn this proven method by using the 40-Minute Bible Studies. By the end of this workshop, you will feel renewed, trained and ready to begin your own Inductive Bible Study class with confidence! So for those of you who have no experience, plan to attend because the FastTrack Leader Training Workshop is for you, too!
