A review of current literature demonstrates a plethora of material focused on various deliverance techniques, yet very little material is available to assist pastors with developing a spiritual warfare “basic training” plan. The purpose of this project is to illuminate a ministry’s desperate need to adopt a spiritual warfare worldview, to present the basic elements essential to a spiritual warfare basic training plan, and to create an effective strategy for implementing such a plan. Based on surveys and questionnaires sent to pastors and other ministry leaders, the project reveals the need for a spiritual warfare basic training plan for any ministry in order to bring courage, freedom, and fresh fire to Christian “soldiers” everywhere. It then reviews both historical and current approaches to spiritual warfare to discern the basic elements needed in any spiritual warfare basic training plan and offers such a plan.
