Impactful messages. Mind-sharpening and heart-shaping lessons. Unforgettable people whose testimonies are so inspiring. New friends whose casual conversations turned to hearty laughter, deep talks, and sincere prayers. A turning point of one’s Christian journey. Personal encounter with the Creator of the universe. Perhaps a special revelation from Him. These are just some of the what the PSALM Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) can deliver. Indeed, it is a training like no other!
The PLTI plays a vital role in the transformation of the youth and professionals from being a mere spectator to becoming a dynamic servant leader for the Lord. Through its curriculum, it equips the participants with skills in understanding and relaying the message of the Bible, skills in sharing one’s faith using witnessing tools and discipleship material, knowledge of specific ministry models and strategies, and the character of total reliance on God. Other activities such as practical application workshops, exercises and simulations are added to provide avenue for expression of knowledge attained and to encourage and equip trainees for dynamic ministry in campus, within the church and throughout the community. Innovative programs include Prayer Power, Group Devotional, Creative Missions Night, Church Speak Team, Community Immersion, Esprit de Corps, among others.
The year 2019 marks the 45th PLTI—National and 2nd PLTI—Lay National and it was held at PSALM Base, Poblacion, Talisay City, Cebu from March 28-April 4, 2019 with the theme “Unstoppable.” The theme draws inspiration from Romans 8:31 that says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” A total of 140 delegates (57 Basic, 21 Advanced, 15 Specialized, 29 Administrative, and 18 Basic-Lay) and 44 working staff coming from different districts all over the country gathered for this intensive week-long training. For all those who joined this training, it was an overlapping experience of sorts: a sharpening of the mind, a discipline of the body, an education of the heart, and an exercise of faith.
