This ministry is designed to provide leadership mentoring in the Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy Ministry services of the Rock Church.
Church Goal: Ensure that the Manifestation of Kingdom of God power is revealed, understood, desired and delivered to 3.6 million people in San Diego and 1 billion globally by 2025

- Term One: January 23-March 27
- Term Two: April 24 – June 26
- Term Three: August 21-November 20
The curriculum focuses on advanced leadership instruction, leadership mentoring and coaching, practical leadership skill development and personal ministry leadership plan strategies. The pastoral leadership training is considered to be a practical and educational process for mature believers who sense a call to pastoral leadership ministry.
Cost: The tuition is $450 for the full year training ($150 per term). Participants may be expected to purchase some additional, required reading and study materials. The design of the training process is to give personal instruction and practical experience in the full range of biblical church leadership and evangelistic functions. Emphasis will be on Biblical servant-leadership that models the Kingdom of God authority and humility of Jesus Christ.
Leadership Instruction: On a weekly basis the Pastoral Care Ministry team will meet for pastoral mentoring and instruction on specific pastoral leadership topics. As a group, the various study assignments involve readings, discussion, in-class rGroup engagement and rich team-relationship building. Instructors include Rock Church pastors, seminary professors and ministry leaders with expertise in leadership development.
