Coaching4Christ Training Academy Applications

Coaching4Christ Training Academy applications are NOW OPEN, so if you are an avid sports fan who is even more passionate about reaching young people for Jesus, then you should think about enrolling at the Coaching4Christ Training Academy, which is now accepting applications for next term.
It will get underway in September 2016 and end in May 2017. Full-time Coaching4Christ Volunteers also assist at Camps throughout the summer.
The Training Academy is based at the Coaching4Christ Development Centre at 16 the Diamond, Ahoghill. Simply put, its ethos is ‘coaching people to reach people’

Prospective students must be at least 17 years old & four potential study roots are open to them –

  1. Biblical Ministry and Sports Studies
  2. Biblical Studies and Sports Studies with no assessment in Sports Studies
  3. Biblical and Ministry Studies only
  4. Trainees choose the modules they would like to take, with assessment optional.

Course one and two will cost £1,400 per term, course three – £1,000 & course four – £60 per module. There is an international trip to Spain for six days at the end of May and clients will raise the cost of this as a class.

The available modules are:

  • Old Testament Overview and New Testament Book with Topical Studies,
  • Ministry studies, which looks at in depth studies in Christian Service;
  • Sports Studies, a unit focusing on theoretical and practical application in football coaching.

Coaching4Christ Training Academy develops the spiritual knowledge of those who attend, and many go on to full time ministry.

Encouraging people to apply, Academy Co-ordinator, Alan Dundas, said: “As well as increasing their own knowledge of spiritual things through excellent teaching each trainee will experience immense personal development in different ways. They will enjoy rich fellowship with like-minded people, build friendships and grow together in the Lord as they allow God to work in and through them.”
Alan went on to highlight the fact that 75% of all former students are now in full time Ministry; Rodney Weir is one of a number of full-time Coaching4Christ Volunteers, while Paul and Lorraine McCaw now serve at the Belfast City Mission’s Mayo Street Hall.
