The next dean training is scheduled for August 17-20, 2020 in Wichita, KS. It aims to provide excellent equipping for church plant trainers working among the urban poor through the commissioning of deans certified to run Evangel Church Plant Schools in their own ministry context.

Those who complete the training and are certified will be authorized to use Evangel’s textbooks (e.g. Ripe for Harvest: A Guidebook for Planting Healthy Churches in the City; and Planting Churches Among the City's Poor, Volumes I and Volume II; videos, power point presentations and other resources developed for Evangel Church Plant Schools (Evangel Resource Pack) in their own ministry contexts.

Training Objectives

  • Provide specialized and sustainable training for church planters working among the urban poor (e.g. WI Associates, bi-vocational church planters, church planting missionaries, denominational church planters, etc.)
  • Equip church plant teams within their ministry context by providing Evangel schools in urban centers across the United States and the world.
  • Create a network of skilled trainers who can host schools in multiple locations around the United States.
  • Partner with TUMI satellites, urban church associations, and denominations to host Evangel Schools around the country.

Please note: We require two potential deans per church, ministry or location to attend the Evangel Dean School together.
