How to Become a Certified Leader
Leadership Training for Girls' Clubs
The Girls Ministries Leader Training Guide (GMLTG) gives an overview of the purpose and organization of ministry using the Mpact and TGM clubs in the local church. The GMLTG is the official textbook for the conference-sponsored Leadership Training Course (LTC). This study guide contains an open-book Scan-Tron test and 10 chapters covering topics such as the purpose of Mpact and TGM, how to get started, elements of a good sponsor, developmental characteristics of children, how to plan a club meeting, and the purpose of awards.
Both the LTC and GMLTG for all leaders. The GMLTG should be studied individually before attending a conference-sponsored Leadership Training Course (LTC). The open-book test should be completed and mailed for grading unless your conference GM director requests that you bring it with you to the conference training. Follow the mailing instructions printed on the test and be sure to include the $10.00 processing fee with the check made out to IPHC Girls' Ministries. Once both of these steps (conference-sponsored LTC & open-book test) are completed, you have met the requirements for becoming a certified girls club sponsor or coordinator.
Contact your Conference Girls' Ministries (GM) Director to determine the date of the next training in your area. If you need help identifying your conference director, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, write to IPHC Girls’ Ministries, PO Box 12609, Oklahoma City, OK 73157, or call 405-792-7134. If your conference does not have an LTC scheduled for a while, you may go ahead and complete the GMLTG and open-book test requirement and then attend the next available training in your conference. The annual charter application will ask you to verify the status of these two requirements for each sponsor and the local coordinator. It is the responsibility of the local coordinator to monitor these two requirements for each sponsor as changes become necessary.
