MinistryLift provides professional development and ministry training through MB Seminary, the national seminary of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. MinistryLift exists to help you build greater capacity to love God more deeply and serve others more effectively.
MinistryLift builds capacity through workshops, training videos, articles, and other tools that leaders from over 290 churches and 34 denominations have found helpful. The MinistryLift team is not always portable, but most of the training is. Nearly every workshop option is recorded and uploaded onto the website so that MinistryLift members can access the material whenever they want to. Webinars are another way that people from across the country are able to engage in relevant training while connecting with other leaders who share similar joys and challenges.
If you'd like a taste for what MinistryLift offers, you can subscribe to the MinistryLift blog and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. You can also see what MinistryLift specializes in by browsing through training topics and the video resources page (many resources are available, but video plays are restricted to MinistryLift members).
Please contact MinistryLift if there's any way that we can resource you. We're always looking to develop more training and to serve churches.
