The Creare Training Centre is a development centre that specializes in Bible studies, Christian arts, outreaches and mission work. It is a ministry under the supervision and guidance of Our Father’s Home church. It offers PART-TIME and FULL-TIME training.
Creare has 10 academies where people can attend classes in: Music, Drama, Dance, Art, Multimedia, Word Studies, Missions, Prophetic, Worship, and Skills training.
How can I get trained?
The FULL-TIME programme at Creare Training Centre is intended for people who would like to be trained in the Creare Academies for a specific period of time – they stay in Creare student houses and become part of the discipleship programme at Our Father’s Home Church. This programme is facilitated either as part of a “GAP YEAR” or specific academy studies with Bible-based ministry focuses. Those who enroll for this programme do so according to their choice based on their human rights as Christians to practice their faith.
Some of the classes taught at Creare Training Centre are PART-TIME and are attended by people from many different beliefs (ethnic groups, religious and/or lifestyles). The syllabi taught by Creare Training Centre are all Bible-based. Students who attend these classes are not expected to change their beliefs, and encouraged to further their studies at Creare on a part-time basis and also attend Training Conferences, which run during the holidays.
TRAINING CONFERENCE (Holiday School)
The Creare Training Conferences are designed to give concentrated training in fields of the Arts, Skills, and Ministry focuses, from each of the Creare Academies, over a period of 1-3 weeks. They are normally held at the Creare Training Centre in Bloemfontein, South Africa. These conferences have one and two weeklong courses that run in specific sessions throughout the day each week. They are suited for people who are not able to attend Creare classes regularly, and want to experience the "holiday school." By coming to a Training Conference is possible to attend up to four courses during the week as well a weekend course for maximum impartation! These Training Conferences run predominantly during South African school holidays so that students at schools and tertiary institutions are able to attend. Classes are also run in evening sessions so that those whose work hours prevent them from attending may be able to do so.
Full-time tour teams travel in "circuit routes" to be able to offer training at different towns, schools and churches throughout the year. Some teams are in a different town every day, repeating the route every week so that students have their class each week at the same time. These teams have an advantage over the part-time tours in that the student can enrol and participate in classes all year round.
- More than 200 part-time students who attend weekly classes in Bloemfontein.
