After completing the initial 10-12 month program, each Client is given the opportunity to remain at His House another three months. In this portion of the program, they learn more about spiritual gifts, Christian maturity, prayer, and who they are in the Body of Christ.
This advanced training introduces one to the concept of becoming a servant in Christ and provides an amplified look at the cost of discipleship. They learn the proper use of their spiritual gifts and how to facilitate small groups as he / she deepens his understanding of their call to ministry and mission.
S.L.T. is a one-year commitment for clients who are called into the recovery ministry. It is an intense training period where only the highest caliber of character is permitted. This is a combination of intense studies, internship, and mentoring.
In S.L.T. the Clients go back through all the classes, however, this time assisting in the teaching and counseling of the Clients in the Regeneration Program.
They work hand in hand with class counselors in an intern relationship where they learn first-hand how best to minister and develop positive and healthy confrontational skills. Thus, directly benefiting the Clients in the program. We have found that there is no substitute or limitation to this type of hands on training.
The education and curriculum that is taught in the S.L.T. classes has been developed over fifty years of working with people in addiction. Many have gone on from this training program to work around the world in recovery ministry.
