Ministers Week

February 17-21, 2025

The 2025 Ministers’ Week is designed to help church leaders practically apply doctrinal teachings to the body life of their local churches. The classes are designed for those in leadership and their wives, but we welcome anyone who has a desire to study the Word of God.

The Ministers’ Week is a five-day program of in-class study. Classes begin Monday noon and end Friday noon. Each one in attendance may enroll in a maximum of three courses. There will be a total of approximately nine hours of teaching per subject.
