TPM Study Guide

Here is what you need to know:

This study guide is designed to help you to navigate through the online TPM training.

It is structured around the book entitled, “The Essentials of Transformation Prayer Ministry.”

You will be able to order additional copies soon.

Be sure to watch for upcoming announcements regarding its official release.

The “Essentials” book is the centerpiece of your training. However, there is much more information that you will need to fulfill your training. This study guide will direct you to other sources of information (including articles, videos and practice exercises) as you work through each of the chapters in the “Essentials” book. As of this writing, everything you need is freely available on this website.

This guide has been compartmentalized and organized into a twenty-week format. Each week lists the training material that is to be read, viewed, or practiced before the corrisponding week’s meeting. The articles, videos, and practice lessons are arranged in the order that you are to work through them.

The items labeled “Going Deeper” are not mandatory, but they can be very helpful in expanding your understanding of various topics covered in the TPM training. You can print out this page in order to help you keep track of your training assignments.

NOTE: The blue text contains links to articles and videos. If an article contains videos, we highly recommend that you view them, as they supplement and expand the written portion of the article!
