Dear Ladies,

Gather your friends, daughters and sisters together for a day out that will strengthen your faith.

God is calling His Daughters to be fearless in their faith and accomplish great things as we put our trust in Him.  You can make a difference in someone’s life by bringing them with you for this spiritual infusion that will build their faith to believe God for miracles in 2018.

I will be looking for you to join me at the Spring Tour in your area,

Ruth Puleo

Rural Compassion

PennDel is partnering with Convoy of Hope’s Rural Compassion to come alongside our rural pastors with a renewed vision for reaching our rural areas for Jesus.

This free two-day event involves:
– Three workshops focused on how to connect with your community
– A blessing room of resources for pastors
– A distribution of donated goods for you to bring home and bless your rural community

Round table discussions will give you the opportunity to interact with other pastors from rural communities. It is the desire of Rural Compassion that in 24 hours together, your ministry will be changed and that the workshop will be a catalyst to start a transformation and make an opportunity for a long and prosperous future in your rural community.

This event is limited to 20 pastors and the details are below.

Time: April 6 & 7, 2018

Location: Bongiorno Conference Center
430 Union Hall Rd

What to Bring:

Please bring a vehicle or trailer that has the capacity equivalent to a 15 passenger van with the seats out of it. Convoy of Hope will have product there that we will send home with you: paper products, cleaning supplies, and food items. This is an awesome way to bless your community!

Rural Compassion will be training you on how you can use the products to impact your community with the love of Christ.

PennDel School of Ministry


PennDel School of Ministry (PDSOM) is a member of the Association of District Schools of Ministry (ADSOM). We began in the fall of 2016 with our first campus in Monroeville, and we are opening our second campus in York this fall. Successful completion of each level of instruction fulfills the District’s educational requirement to receive credentials.

One time registration fee is $75.00. Enrollment for each course is $60.00 per class plus textbooks.

There are internships required at each level of instruction.

This fall (2017) Monroeville campus (meeting at Monroeville AG) will offer Level 1 and Level 2 classes, and the York campus (1st AG, York) will offer Level 1 classes only. The Monroeville campus classes meet on the SECOND Saturday of each month (Sept-May). The York campus classes meet on the THIRD Saturday of each month. Both campuses follow the same class schedule each month. In September 2017 AG History will be offered at Monroeville on the SECOND Saturday AND will be offered at the York campus on the THIRD Saturday.

For more information and to register go to

Coaching Courses


This 3-month program includes training, 10 hours of mentor coaching from experienced coaches, and 15 logged hours of peer/client coaching. This will help credential holders complete the requirements for Level 1 AG Coaching Certification, the one pre-requisite 501 Coach Training or a comparable introduction to coaching course (or refresher course).

Josh Torres and Bill Ellis lead this cohort to fill the gap between coach training and coach certification. It answers the question, “Now that I’ve had training, how do I become certified?” It will help us to build a system that will allow us to provide coaching.

Cost: $395.00 (PennDel Credential Holders can apply for the Educational Reimbursement to reimburse $300.00 upon completion and certification)
