A Note from our International Directors
Dr Michael Dalseno
and Rev Irene LayLim Dalseno
We welcome you to commence a Leadership Training Centre in your local Church, using our comprehensive resources and many years of experience in running external training centres. Hundreds of leaders and AG pastors have graduated through our quality courses, most of them in their own towns, cities, churches and workplaces, without every having to leave them.
We welcome you to download and look through the below INFORMATION PACKAGE and the SAMPLES, and find out more about how this extension program can work for you. We also have a Mentoring program available to help you in developing your local church leaders. This combination of personal study plus mentoring has worked very well for many churches for over 20 years. Almost any church of any size, with any number of trainees, can run it. It is that simple. The INDICATION OF INTEREST (APPLICATION) FORM is also accessable below in order to fill in which to register your interest. And please feel free to contact us with any questions by email or phone.
These downloads will provide you with the essential information about Training in your own Local Church without having to trawl through the website. Feel free to print them out, distribute, share with other pastors & leaders, advertise, etc. We look forward to hearing from you, and would like to partner with you in raising up vital leaders for the future.

- Sample of Subject Notes (first 10 pages of Christology notes only)
- Sample of Content Assignment (assessment questions for the same 10 pages)
- Sample of a Marking Key (assessment answers for the same 10 pages)
- The sample is a portion of the notes for only one subject, the Teaching on Christ (Christology). Other samples of notes may be found on the "Student" menu of this website;
- This section will particularly be of interest to Pastors and Site Administrators who would like to see a sample of assessments at Certificate and Diploma level;
- Marking Keys for all subjects are clear in their answers so as to render assessment a relatively straight-forward process. All answers are contained in the notes and the Bible, and are not difficult to find.
Local Churches can now run their own Leadership Training Centre, giving you a strong degree of ownership and influence in the way you mature your congregation and train leadership for your Local Church. Armed with sound Course content, a proven curriculum, all materials provided and flexibility, you can now train and mentor your own people right where you are and when it suits you. Here are a few tips and some hands-on practical information .........
FORMAT FOR RUNNING A LOGOS TRAINING CENTRE (suggestions)
1. Training Centres vary from one place to another ... probably no two are alike because our delivery method allows for flexibility in suiting the local context. Some centres do one night a week in a classroom format (teacher with Logos notes, data projector, etc), some use Sunday (e.g, like we do at 1st AG Church Kuala Lumpur, given hectic traffic), some use an Intensive format (cover the essentials over a few days or weekends and allow the students to do the rest at home), some use a mixed mode (both classes and Intensive), some let the students work privately at home as an Independent Study Student (and report progress to pastor every month or so), and we have a centre even doing full time on-campus.
2. Yearly Calendar. We usually recommend utilizing about 35-40 weeks a year to run your courses, allowing time off for school holidays, public holidays, Christmas, etc. Here in KL, where the home office is, we usually cease classes for the 2 months including the Dec and Jan period, Chinese New Year for 2 weeks in Feb/March, and skip for important church calendar dates, though that is optional. You can also work around your own church calendar, skipping dates and times where you feel necessary. The speed in which you cover a course is up to you.
3. Subjects per year. At the beginning you need to decide how many subjects you want to do a year. So, eg, if you decide to do 4 subjects a year (which is not a bad part time rate; most of our centres do 4 a year), you will be looking at, eg, about 2 years to complete a Specialized Training Certificate (8 subjects plus a practicum) or about 3 years to complete a Bible College course like the Christian Education Certificate. Four is a good moderate pace allowing enough time for classes, study, reflection, and assessments. Some centres, however, choose 3 subjects a year, or maybe even 5 if pushing ahead.
4. Teaching. It normally takes about 2 1/2 to 3 months to do one subject. As a rule of thumb, depending on the nature and length of the subject, around 10 classes of about 2 hours teaching per class is sufficient to teach a subject. Some shorter subjects may only require 8 or 9 classes, some longer ones can be up to 12 or 15 … it’s up to you really … and depending on how long and thorough you want to cover a subject. Some centres do 3 hours at a time. Again, the delivery mode is flexible because the courses are designed to allow for full independent study by an individual student. Under Australian Vocational Training conditions (on which our curriculums are based), the length and time it takes to do a subject does not really matter, just so the final student assessment (such as Content Assignments) proves competency and skills in the relevant subject area.
5. Place. Some centres use their church auditoriums, some use a designated classroom, some use private homes or pastors offices if they are suitable, some hire rooms in public buildings, etc. The place is negotiable, just so it is relatively private, conducive for teaching, cool, comfortable, ideally with some desks or tables, good date projection, sound system if a big class, etc. You might even want to record the class for future clases of new goups coming through.
6. Materials. We provide the full set of Notes materials plus the assignments for students to do. In most cases we also have modern Powerpoints for you to teach from in classes. You are free to change and adapt these PPs to your context.
