Biblical training for chapter leaders, and or trip participants, begins with a unique, missional week of intensive training with Fully Packed Adventure Ministries in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Honduras serves as our training grounds as it provides a venue, local church, and context where believers can come together, in the body of Christ, to celebrate genuine faith united by the Holy Spirit. Honduras provides a neutral venue for participants to focus on their faith in Christ without the distractions of their home context. It is also a beautiful country, full of complex issues which encourage and stretch one’s Christian faith. The weather, topography, and variety of ecosystems also favor year-round outdoor adventure.
Not able to make it to Honduras? Additional Biblical training will be offered at specified locations throughout the U.S. as specified on the official Fully Packed annual calendar. Typically one East Coast and one West Coast training seminar will be offered annually.
Biblical training of chapter members then becomes the privilege and responsibility of each Fully Packed chapter leader and volunteer. We feel convicted that every opportunity and every chapter event should involve opening and expositing God’s Word. Chapter leaders are welcome to use materials from the training conference to subsequently offering the teaching at local events such as bike rides, camping trips, or other member activities.
The same is applied to those that attend the training but are not a chapter leader. We will work with said person to reach the people in their area (work, neighborhoods, school, etc.). You are welcome, and we encourage you, to use the materials from the training conference to subsequently offer the training in your places of influence.
How We Seek To Teach The Bible
Biblical Training Conferences
Through FPAM Local Chapter
We desire to employ the REPS model to equip local leaders to provide Biblical teaching and spiritual membership to members through the Americas. A list of current chapters is available on the Fully Packed Web site. At the time of publication, chapter leadership is emerging in Denver, Indiana, Ohio, South Carolina, Southern California, and Honduras. The desire is to see each chapter equipped to properly teach God’s Word and conduct regular personal ministry.
Chapter leaders will be encouraged to attend one annual Biblical training conference, as well as attend periodic on-line training meetings offered by Fully Packed leadership team members.
Local chapters may operate under the auspices of a local church, or in some cases, chapters operate as completely independent parachurch entities. In either case, the objective is to provide a platform for leaders to be trained to further the work of discipleship and evangelism.
Through Providing Resources
Fully Packed Adventures is committed to helping you grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to equip you to train others through events that are organized via your local chapter.
Fully Packed Adventure Ministries provides multiple resources:
Blog - We publish a weekly blog to help readers keep their eyes on Christ. The blog is sometimes light-hearted, and other times tackles deep issues such as sin or doctrine. We often feature special teachers, chapter leaders, or board members.
Quarterly Webinars - We will employ conference call or webinar technology to offer one 45-60 minute Biblical teacher conference every 90 days. The conference will be required for chapter leaders, and open to all members on a voluntary basis. The webinars will cover a specific Biblical text, doctrine, or theme based on the direction of the Holy Spirit or inquiries for chapter leadership.
Recommended Reading Lists - We regularly offer suggestions through newsletters, blog entries, and events on doctrinally sound books* that we think might build you up in your walk with Christ. These reading lists include books on deep doctrinal issues as well as practical Christian living.
For members who are less likely to pick-up a book, we will also distribute suggested podcasts and sermons to encourage Fully Packed members in their Christ-given duty of Reaching, Equipping, Partnering, and Sending.
*Our goal is always to have the Bible as the focus of our own studies, and we would only steer you toward books that will enhance your study and application of God’s Holy Word.
