We aim to 'Build Confident, Committed Leaders' through the provision of education and training for ministerial formation, enrichment and service in the 21st century.
The courses, seminars, lectures and conferences at the Leadership Training Centre are designed and facilitated to support the formation and development of Christian leaders in their various practice of ministry. The Certificate in Ministerial Studies(CIMS) courses are open to Pastors and Church leaders from all Christian denominations. CIMS courses provide learning opportunities for effective Christian service within and beyond the local church. We continue to work in partnership with a selected number of theological institutions and organisations such as The Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, the Pentecostal Theological Seminary (PTS) and the Association of Christian Counsellors’ (ACC)). Partnership with PTS enables us to facilitate a Certificate Programme for Church Leaders and a UK MDiv cohort which should appeal to those who wish to advance their theological studies particularly in our Pentecostal tradition. The CIMS course, Helping People in Crises, for example, has been extended to incorporate the ACC acclaimed ‘Pastoral Care Foundation Course’ and provide an opportunity for those with a heart for pastoral care to sharpen their perspective and skills to become more effective in the care of people in their churches and local communities. We welcome every Pastor and key leader within the New Testament Church of God and other denominations to take advantage of our provision to enrich your personal and ministerial development and enhance your practice of ministry.

Equip Christian leaders to realise their sense of calling and advance the ministry of the Church.
The course content and process are specifically designed to facilitate learning that prepares and equips pastors and key leaders for effective ministry inside the church and in the wider community with reference to Luke 4:18-19 (NKJV): "Preach the gospel to the poor, heal the broken-hearted, proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, set at liberty those who are oppressed, proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
Strengthen the Christian voice in the public sphere.
The Leadership Training Centre works in partnership with others to strengthen the Christian voice in the public sphere in England and Wales, for example Free Churches Group and other para-church organisations such as interdenominational mission agents in England and Wales as well as the European Pentecostal Theological Association and our own Church of God World Missions initiatives.
Learning about the Pentecostal Heritage.
The Heritage Centre and events such as the Annual Oliver Lyseight Lecture provide opportunities for research, enhanced understanding and new insights into the Pentecostal heritage and the specific contribution of the Black Majority Churches (BMCs) to the Christian witness in the local, national and global community. This is particularly pertinent for the current and future generation.
