The MANNA! Mission

MANNA! Educational Services International exists to equip leaders, teachers, pastors and parents for spiritual leadership and Christian ministry.

Grace. Community. Empowerment. Dignity. Fun. Security.

What is it?

The secret to success in any school, church, organization or business is a well-trained and motivated staff. The problem is a lot of "training" today is lame, boring, expensive and unproductive. There has to be something "better." Who's going to lead the leaders, teach the teachers and pastor the pastors?

What is it?

For the past 30 years the Church in America has been in decline. Despite a plethora of books, conferences and materials most churches, particularly the smaller ones, struggle to find, retain and motivate leaders to lead and teachers to teach. We have a leadership and discipleship crisis of epic proportions in the church. Who will stand in the gap to serve those desperate for help, revival and change? Who will help the "little ones" in particular?

What is it?

There's a global hunger for quality education that empowers and equips leaders and teachers, whether in a church, school, business or organization. American "missions" do a lot of great "relief" work in other countries but what's truly needed is "release" work: the training of native leaders and teachers who can then reproduce what they've learned to influence and impact their own community. Who's going to pastor tomorrow's churches? Who's going to educate tomorrow's Christians? Who's going to develop leaders for ministries, programs, groups and organizations? Who's going to travel to the ends of the world to train tomorrow's international leaders?

What is it?

During the Exodus, the Israelites were fed complimentary manna in the wilderness. "Manna" in the Hebrew literally means "what is it?" It's a word rich in curiosity, substance and change. It's food for thought and LIFE. And it's the perfect description for our organization's greater vision to serve churches, schools, organizations and businesses with high quality, insightful and life-changing life groups, presentations and consultations.
