Church Leadership Courses

Effects of Grace Ministries, Inc. offers training courses to help pastors and lay people remain faithful to the faith and practice of God’s Word.*  In doing so, they can equip their congregations for the work of the ministry and serve with endurance.

but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.  (2 Peter 3:18, NASB95)

*At this time, free textbooks and lodging are only available for our partners in the Philippines through Eastside Baptist Group of Churches.  We are willing to expand the invitation to others as interpreters, curriculum and funding allows.


Seminary-type classes on subjects designed to help grow healthy, Christ-exalting churches.


Classes will be held at Sylvania Church in Tyler, TX.  Lodging for our Philippine partners will be provided by Effects of Grace Ministries, Inc.


Our first classes are planned for September 17, 2015.  Classes will meet on two days per week.  The duration of the courses is six weeks.

The following items are provided at no cost to students/pastors from the Philippines.  Local students are responsible for their own lodging and textbook purchases:

  • Lodging, utilities and internet;
  • Classroom instruction;
  • Textbooks;

Each student is responsible for his/her own travel expenses.  Philippine students are also responsible for most of their food while in the United States; however, as funding allows, Effects of Grace will supplement.
