What Are The Benefits?
High Quality Training
The Chalmers Center’s training programs are designed to equip holistic practitioners who desire to see the local church fulfill its call to be God’s healing, reconciling presence in the world. Our curriculum integrates gospel-centered themes with best-practice financial literacy theory and technical content, communicating Jesus’ role in healing and sustaining all things.
Collaborative Learning Community
Experience has shown us that the most effective training rarely comes from downloading training materials and teaching yourself apart from a learning community. Instead, training that includes relationship building and offers learning from a wide community of practitioners is more likely to equip effective facilitators. As an organization deeply committed to relationships and quality training, our network of practitioners provides is set up to provide feedback as part of the training program.
