What is the 201?

Nazarene Strengths Advisor 201 course equips advisors to work one-on-one with individual members of a congregation, helping them to understand their God-given strengths and to discover “what they do best” in ministry and service.

Building upon what individuals learned in Strengths Advocate 101, the goal of this course is to provide a  concrete understanding of an individual’s strengths as well as an overall knowledge of all 34 talent themes.

As a result of the training, participants are equipped with skills designed to help others understand and express their unique ministry within their faith community.

The goals of this two day course are to:

  • Deepen your awareness of strengths concepts and practices
  • Discover how to build strengths from talents
  • Understand the deeper dynamics of strengths including their affect on personal engagement, relationships and spiritual health
  • Arm you with tools to use during your one-on-one advising sessions

Attendance at a Strengths Advocate 101 training (or the like)  is a pre-requisite to taking this course.  Click Here if you have questions about qualifying for the 201.

NSI Event Contingencies

Program Costs – Costs for each event may vary due to variable refreshment costs and cost subsidizing by churches, districts, or universities.

Program Cancellation
 – NSI reserves the right to cancel any program that does not reach the minimum number of participants two (2) weeks prior to the scheduled start date of the program and will notify all registered participants of the cancellation at that time.  Participants are requested to plan their travel accordingly as NSI is not responsible for reimbursement of travel expenses.  In the event of a program cancellation, participants will have the option of a full refund or the transfer of their attendance cost to another event of the same nature.

Participant Cancellation
 – NSI absorbs administrative costs before the program begins, therefore, participant cancellations two (2) weeks prior to the start date of the program will incur a charge of 50% of the tuition fee for the program. Cancellations received fewer than one (1) week prior to the first day of the program will not be eligible for a refund.  In the event of a participant cancellation, said participant may opt to transfer his/her registration to another course without incurring a penalty.  Changes or cancellations of registrations must be received in writing.
