The Believers School of Ministry, a tool which has been used to train Christian believers around the world, is coming to Mankato in 2018!
Classes will be held each Thursday evening, January 11-March 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Madison East Center Meeting Room, 1400 E. Madison Ave., Suite 354, Mankato, Minnesota.
The Believers School of Ministry equips Christians to share their faith and to use the gifts that God has given them to help others. We teach foundational Bible principles and train believers to do the works of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit. Each class includes practical hands-on training in ministry skills—such as witnessing, praying for the needs of others, and moving in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
This is your opportunity to develop the skills you need to fulfill your calling. These stimulating classes will be transformational for teens, college students, new believers, old believers and everyone in between. There will be alive and powerful teaching from the Word of God, interactive role playing, fun quizzes. and more. The school is sponsored by Tom Shanklin Ministries in cooperation with Two Rivers Vineyard Church.
Tom Shanklin Ministries is an interdenominational evangelistic ministry based in Mankato. The classes are open to people from all churches and denominational backgrounds. Our prayer is that all of the churches in Mankato and the surrounding area will be helped and encouraged through these classes to fulfill their mission of reaching the world for Jesus Christ. Please prayerfully consider being a part of the Believers School of Ministry.

Recommendation for the Believers School of Ministry
To Whom It May Concern:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ!
I write this letter for the purpose of recommending the Believers School of Ministry that is being led by Pastor Tom Shanklin. I have had the privilege of being an attendee of three of those meetings, and a co-teacher in one of them when we held that school here in our parish during June of 2017.
I believe these times of teaching and practical application are terribly important for the Body of Christ, and I know that many of the people who came for these meetings were blessed and challenged to walk outside their denominational “boxes” with regards traditions, and to put into practice the teachings particularly with regards healing, deliverance, and praying for people.
I highly recommend these classes and encourage anyone who is serious in following the Lord Jesus Christ and being led by the Holy Spirit to attend. You will be blessed!
