TRIM Academy Level Courses
Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center offers some courses each year in conjunction with Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership that earn course units in the TRIM (TRaining In Ministry) program. Read more about the TRIM program here, or visit the Brethren Academy website. Questions about TRIM should be directed to the district TRIM Coordinator or to the national TRIM Coordinator, Carrie Eikler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Upcoming TRIM courses offered by SVMC:
This course will provide students with competency in skills and perspectives necessary for providing effective leadership in the church. Information, resources and experiences for developing a theology of pastoral administration will be offered. Self-awareness and self-direction as well as the ability to empower others to do ministry and mission will be explored. Projects will be placed in the context of congregational or institutional life, allowing students to expand their gifts for this ministry.
