The purpose of this one-day workshop is to equip and certify missionaries and church leaders (lay or staff leaders) to train other believers in Good Soil evangelism and discipleship principles and techniques, using the curriculum and resources associated with the Good Soil E&D basic seminar.

Certification

Participants who successfully complete and fulfill the requirements for this workshop will be certified to teach the Good Soil Basic Seminar and use the materials that have been created for that seminar.
