INFORMATION

Purpose

The Ministry Refresher Institute is a 2 day conference held on the campus of Heartland Baptist Bible College. Our purpose is to refresh men already serving in the ministry whether they are pastors, evangelists, missionaries, or staff members. The MRI is designed to sharpen your ministry tools so that you will be better equipped to serve your local congregation. It will also be a time of encouragement as you have ample opportunity to fellowship with like-minded pastors, staff members, and laymen.

Transportation

Free transportation to and from the OKC airport is available with advance notification of schedule. Local transportation is provided – you do not need to rent a car.

PREACHING TRACK

Preaching Track Topics

Homiletics and Hermeneutics are annual session topics. Other session topics vary from year to year. In previous MRIs, these topics have included Biblical counseling, ministry ethics and philosophy, and practical tips for sermon preparation among others. In addition, all participants will also have the opportunity for personal fellowship and interaction in question-and-answer sessions called “Let’s Talk.”

MUSIC TRACK

Music Track Topics

A range of topics will be covered that are of interest to the music ministers in attendance. Previous topics have included music philosophy, vocal technique, rearranging music, rehearsal techniques, and personal development for the music directors. Our desire is for this meeting to both equip and refresh our men in the music ministry so that they may return to their ministry with a rekindled desire and zeal to be used in an even greater way for the service of our Lord!
