Foundational CHE Training of Trainers (TOT) is designed to equip participants to implement their own integrated ministry of community health and evangelism in a target area. The training is done in three phases (See Below). Each phase involves 35 hours of learning followed by approximately six months in the field. CHE training is “just in time training” designed to give participants what they need to take the next step with their targeted communities. See the three phases of training below.
For those who want an introduction to CHE but are not ready to commit to a full TOT, we recommend a Vision Seminar.
Understanding the Biblical basis for CHE and basic principles of wholistic community-based development.

This two-day seminar introduces CHE concepts. Vision seminars are used to introduce the philosophy and basic strategies of CHE to decision makers. In this instance, a CHE TOT 1 would be recommended after catching the “vision” at the Vision Seminar.
Learning is facilitated in a participatory style through a process of guided self discovery using large and small group discussions, various hands-on activities, and methods that can be replicated to the village setting. From start to finish, locals are the decision makers in the CHE process. This ensures that programs are sustainable and contextualized.
Graduates of TOT 1 will have access to over a hundred manuals covering a multitude of subjects. There are also specialty trainings which you may want to investigate. Here are a few to choose from:
