Training Godly Expository Multipliers for Singapore & the World

About Gospel 360 (G360)

 

Gospel 360 (G360) is a two year full-time ministry training scheme run by The Crossing Church, Singapore. We aim to identify, equip and assess potential gospel workers so as to develop the next generation of gospel workers to serve God in Singapore and the world. The scheme is called G360 because we want to equip trainees to view all of life and ministry through the lens of the gospel, and we hope to send trainees with the gospel all over the world.

 

What is the goal of G360?

 

G360’s goal is to produce GEMs:

Godly

Godliness is a non-negotiable in Christian ministry (1 Tim 3:1-7; 4:6-16; Tit 1:5-9). Of course no one is perfectly godly except our Lord Jesus. But the Bible does demand exacting standards and progress (1 Tim 4:12-16) when it comes to the character for men and women who enter full-time ministry. G360 aims to encourage growth in godliness through its ministry training and personalised pastoral supervision.

Expository

All Christian ministry is Bible teaching ministry. And the only gift required for gospel ministry is the ability to teach (1 Tim 3:2; 4:11, 13-14; 2 Tim 2:15; 4:1-8; Tit 1:9). G360’s training is therefore thoroughly focused on helping trainees to develop an expository approach to the Bible which can be applied from Pulpit to Sunday School to One-to-One ministry. As such, trainees will be required to spend the bulk of their training working on their Bible handling (exegesis and hermeneutics) and teaching/preaching (homiletics). Over the course of two years the trainees will dig deep into several key Bible books, develop a biblical theological instinct, and also learn how to teach/preach every genre of the Bible.

Multipliers

God wants people in ministry who can multiply the work of the gospel both evangelistically (Matt 28:16-20) and through edification (2 Tim 2:1-2). As such, G360 equips its trainees to be effective evangelists, disciplers, and ministry leaders. Much of the training involves thinking hard about Christian doctrine and how that translates into leading a gospel-centered ministry.

 

As such, G360 is rigorous, Bible-saturated, ministry-focused, missional, gospel-shaped and practical. The training is unashamedly Reformed and conservative. G360’s hope is to equip men and women to be effective Bible teachers for the church in our ever-changing world.

 

What does G360 training involve?

 

G360 trainees typically spend two days a week receiving training and four days serving in their local ministry. One day of training involves Bible Handling where they will work through key books like Exodus, Galatians, Ephesians and Revelation, trying to discuss and debate in groups what is the point, purpose and tone of a passage and how it fits into the book as a whole. The second day of training involves teaching in Systematic Theology, Pastoral Ministry and Preaching. Over the two years trainees will learn how to teach/preach every genre of the Bible and be assessed through regular preaching groups. In addition, all trainees are personally supervised by a pastor/trainer. The four days serving in a local church allows trainees to put into practice what they have learnt and to have their gifts assessed in a real world ministry setting.
