The 2nd National Intensive of the Institute for Christian Education will be August 25-27, 2011. The course this year is Understanding Teaching. Dr. Greg Carlson, author, is guest instructor. Greg is Professor of Christian Ministries, Trinity International University, Deerfield, IL. The Institute for Christian Education is a ministry called to train laity within the local church “to do the work of ministry.” ICE uses the Church Ministry Certificate Program of Evangelical Training Association. All courses receive an ETA Certificate (modeled after the Continuing Education Unit (CEU) 10 hours of study). It is possible for educators and social services workers to receive certification needed for licensure. The intensive is returning to The Oaks Retreat Center on the campus of Family Ministries, Greeneville, TN.
