Training is the key to readiness. Therefore training certifications are a key measure of the progress of our Christian community preparing to be ‘ready’: to share the Good News and its loving impact in our neighborhoods. If we truly love our neighbors as ourselves, we’ll be ready to help them in their hour of need.
As you complete any of the following training, please advise us at ReadyIndy.org — we track certifications accomplished among our metro area Christians.
We believe every Christian and family should at least prepare by attaining:
- ‘ReadyCitizen‘ self-training/preparation.
- ‘ReadyChristian‘ training (free download)
- …and consider obtaining additional training shown below.
We believe every Church should at least prepare by attaining:
