ABOUT US

What Is an Elect Lady?

This name refers to a woman mentioned in II John 1:1. In this text, the elder of the church addresses a letter of warning concerning deceptive leadership to the "elect/chosen" lady and her children. The word "elect" means one who is chosen, selected, singled out and predestined by God. It is a Christian or Ecclesiastical term. In Cols. 3:12 it depicts the character of the "elect" and it reads: "Put on therefore, as the "elect" of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering." The word "Lady" is a proper name and should be rendered "elect Kyria" (Kyria is a Greek term for Lady).

Our mission is to serve women at-large who are "Elect-chosen" to serve GOD in one or more of the Five-Fold Ministry Elections and/or Business development needs. The school focuses on four key areas of mentoring and studies through the "WOMAN BE WHOLE" study modules: Wisdom, Worship, Wealth, and Wellness. All of our courses are scheduled on different days and times and they are held at different venues. We offer certified courses and mentoring for business, ministry, and spiritual empowerment education.

What is the significance of Sons of Thunder?

In Mark Chapter 3:17, after Jesus ordained the twelve that would be with Him and for Him to send forth to preach, have power to heal sickness, and to cast out devils, He nicknamed James and John, the sons of Zebedee "Boanerges" which is a Greek word for "Sons of Thunder". The name seems to denote fiery and destructive zeal that may be likened to a thunder storm.

THE ROLE, MEANING, AND PURPOSE OF EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES TRAINING

WHAT IS EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES (EBP)

EBP refers to using the best available evidence for decision-making and providing efficient and effective care. Evidence-based practice is a conscientious, problem-solving approach to clinical or faith-based practice that incorporates the best evidence from well-designed studies, patient/client values and preferences, and a Practitioner's expertise in making decisions about a patient's care. It is a method by which Practitioners across the healthcare and faith-based professions review and assess the most current, highest-quality research to inform their delivery of care. Although there is no precise standard for what constitutes evidence-based practice in specialty training, the approach consists of three main components and five basic steps.

1

Best External Evidence

Evaluate and implement the most current, clinically or faith-based soul-care centered relevant, and scientifically sound research.

2

Individual Clinical or Faith-Based/Spiritual Expertise

Draw on your personal experience of what has worked and not worked in your clinical or faith-based/spiritual practice.

3

Client/Patient Values and Expectations

Consider and value the preferences of your individual client/patients. Levels of evidence in both healthcare and/or faith-based/spiritual expertise research can be grouped into four categories according to how credible the information is. These four categories, ranging from the most credible to the least includes.

  • Randomized controlled trials
  • Evidence from cohort, case-control, or observational studies
  • Expert opinions that are supported by experience, studies, or reports.
  • Personal experience (clinical or faith-based/spiritual expertise
