Tentmaking Training

TENTMAKING TRAINING will inspire you to meet the challenge in a situation, where traditional missions falls short. The programme includes a concise information packet of contemporary issues, practical advice and visionary inspiration. Where can I go with my profession? How can I live as a Christian in different cultures? How do I communicate the Gospel if I am not allowed to speak openly?

ARE YOU WILLING TO USE YOUR PROFESSION and education in sharing the Gospel? The tentmaking training provides valuable tools when your aim is to reach the unreached, to disciple and to plant churches. We recommend the course especially for anyone, who is interested in development co-operation, thinking about going overseas, or has already worked abroad.

GO Equipped! can revolutionize your whole life and ministry both overseas and at home.

The speakers of the course, Ari J. Rocklin and Steinar Opheim, are experienced pioneers in tentmaking, and they have a passion to develop the ministry actively. Take this opportunity to gain valuable insight of their professional experience and network - a unique chance for international co-operation!

The course is in English. (Finnish interpretation will be provided if needed.)


STEINAR’S passion for tentmaking comes through loud and clear in
his teaching. We recommend him highly to speak at conferences and churches. - GLOBAL Opportunities
ARI is probably the premier authority in the world on tentmaking.
