Transcript of Pais GB Foundational Training 2017
FIX UP LOOK SHARP!
BEWARE THE FT BUG!
In the past, the dreaded FT Bug has taken the form of a mild cold resulting in sore throats, stuffy noses and sleepy Pais apprentices - ain't nobody got time for that! Doing the following will keep you healthy - which will help to keep those around you healthy too!
27 Aug - 8 Sep, 2017
Please have the following with you every day!
WHAT TO BRING...
PAIS GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND 2017-2018
"Do not hold back..."
"Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes." Isa 54:2
This scripture is a key part of the vision of the Pais Movement. Every year we strive to grow and reach into new places as well as strengthening the ministry in our existing teams. You are a key part to the growth of Pais in GB and Ireland this year!
You will probably find that this year will also be about your own 'stretching and strengthening'! You will be given more opportunities and you will face more challenges this year then you anticipate - each one being used by God to draw you closer to Himself and to bring you closer to the person He always meant for you to be!
Welcome to the Pais GB & Ireland Family!
Getting a good nights sleep on a church floor...
For the 2 weeks that you will be in Burnley, you will be sleeping at a church within walking distance of Life Church and Burnley Town Centre. The church does not have showers, but we have arranged for you to take showers in a nearby leisure centre.
Please make sure you pack the following:
Warm clothes to sleep in - the buildings are old and often chilly at night!
Enough clean clothing for 2 weeks (you may be able to visit a laundromat on your Saturday off)
Sleeping mat or air bed
Sleeping bag and/or blankets
Bag for carrying shower items to and from showers
If you are not able to bring sleeping mat or sleeping bag for any reason, please speak to your Team Leader ASAP so he/she can arrange for you to borrow one.
Men and Women will be in separate accommodation.
This year you will represent Pais GB or Pais Ireland in meetings with teachers, head masters and ministers. We would expect that you would present yourself professionally and do your best to communicate that you respect the person you are meeting with and their time.
Please adhere to the guidelines in the pictures below for the following events...
- Sundays at Life Church (27 Aug if you have arrived by then and 3 Sep)
- As much as possible throughout the rest of FT without needing to go out and buy a new wardrobe!
The dress code for Commissioning Service is 'smart'.
Bible and a Journal, tablet or laptop for taking notes
2017-2018 Diary and To-do Lists (Check with your TL to find out what they use)
Spending money for evening meals, snacks or socials
Folder to hold all handouts and resources given throughout FT (optional)
DAY OF REST
We exist to spark a global movement
where the Saint' primary concern
is the Kingdom of God.
Check the App store on your phone for these free apps!
It is likely that your TL has already spoken to you about Asana. This app can be used on your laptop, tablet or phone and is a great place to organise to-do lists and deadlines for various group or personal projects. And it's FREE!
Download the free app on your phone to access and edit your google calendar. Set reminders and share calendars with others.
IT RAINS IN ENGLAND... A LOT!
MONEY MONEY MONEY
PRAYER AND FASTING
Everyone gets a day off on Saturday, 2nd Sep!
There is loads to do, so get a plan together and make the most of it!
Don't forget your Sunday best for Commissioning Service where you will be prayed over and sent out!
2-3pm Friday, 8 Sep
Breakfast and Lunch will be provided for you each day, but you will need to buy your evening meals, snacks, and meals during socials. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes around Burnley as well as a large super-market.
Pais will be organising 4 evening meals for you at the cost of £15 per person.
We will have a 24-hour fast during FT. It will begin after the evening meal and we will break our fast together with the evening meal the following day. If you have any questions about what fasting is or why we do it, please speak with your Team Leader any time or a Director at FT.
You will want to pack an umbrella, rain coat, and rubber boots or purchase them when you arrive. You will be walking between Life Church and your accommodation every day - it's likely to rain at least once and you won't be comfortable in wet shoes or clothes all day!
