The Choices that Change Your Life Forever


Be trained to teach the Crucible Live Event yourself!

This is an instructor training event.

Moments of decision. Our life is full of them, and how we respond shapes our character and can have lifelong impact.

The decision process can be as intense as a crucible – a vessel in a refining fire, a place where precious substances are tested, purified and strengthened. That’s a picture of the process God uses in our lives.

David, Israel’s shepherd king, faced critical choices throughout his life. We can learn much from how he handled them. In Crucible, we witness how faith, trust, fear, truth, despair, sacrifice and humility refined David and drew him closer to the Heart of God.

By being a Crucible Instructor you can now help many others in this critical character-building process.

Introducing someone to a LifeChanging relationship with God through His Word is a very special opportunity. Time and time again, people who attend our Live Events tell us what a difference it made in their understanding of the Bible and ultimately, in their understanding of and relationship with, God Himself.

As an Instructor, you can dramatically increase the impact of your teaching in your current role and open up opportunities to touch more lives.

Teaching God’s Word. Revitalising People’s Walk.


If you have a heart to impact lives in a major, LifeChanging way and you have a passion for teaching, mentoring and coaching, then you’ll find becoming a Crucible Instructor one of the best investments of your time and gifting.

Become a Crucible Instructor and you’ll impact lives!


Crucible Instructor training is a one-day equipping event for pastors, professionals, life skills trainers, teachers and business leaders.


Our Crucible instructors are a special group of people who are passionate about God’s Word and passionate about igniting that same passion in others. They have a Biblical knowledge and are experienced teachers or speakers.

Crucible Live Events can be taught to adults and young people.
