2017 RZIM PLUS ACADEMY
Dear Pastors, Elders & Church Leaders
Greetings on behalf of Thinkers Club!
In January 29, 2016, Ravi Zacharias International Ministry (RZIM) in partnership with NECF launched an intensive learning program called RZIM Academy Plus. I am pleased to announce that we will be continuing with this course for the next group of participants. This course will again be facilitated by Bro Jose Philip currently the Director of Itinerant Development for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
The brochure and application form is available by clicking here. It is self-explanatory and RZIM has agreed to keep to the tuition fees of USD100 per participant. A few things to take note of as you prepare to identify and invite your members to the program.
The Academy Plus is designed to be an intense-active learning program, and hence it will demand committed participation both in and outside class. Also, the program is designed to be 'interactive'. Therefore, for the participants to gain as much as they could from the program, they must be prepared to have conversations with their yet-to-believe friends. The Goal of Academy Plus is more than 'exposure' or 'information'. The goal is multiplication. Hence the participants must have a heart, to both be a witness, and help others do the same.
In regards to the student enrolling for this course, we expect:
- The participant to be 45 years and below;
- The participant to be a committed Christian, and not just someone who is exploring Christianity;
- The participant to be keen to learn about, and practice evangelism. The objective of Academy Plus is to develop people who have a passion for evangelism as practicing evangelists; and
- The participant to be part of a local church community and are willing to take their learning back to their local churches and bless the Church. Therefore, applicants should obtain a letter of endorsement from their own local church, confirming their membership and current status.
Kindly consider sending your key potential and emerging leaders who possess the above listed criteria for this training. This is training worth investing in the lives of your young people.
