This year is the eighth annual MINISTRY CONNECTION training event hosted by Mt. Zion Church in Ontario. The purpose of this event is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12). Throughout the year pastors are invited to any number of conferences, yet there are few offered for laymen, however these can be pretty expensive. Ministry Connection strives to provide the highest quality training for laymen at an affordable price, namely free.
