The church in most parts of the world is experiencing amazing growth across a wide range of cultures, language groups, ages and social classes. That is not true of the west in general and of Europe in particular. Over the last 50 years Europe has dramatically abandoned the Christian story which formed and founded European culture. The church in Europe is struggling to come to terms with this new situation. For the first time in many years Europe is a mission field! That new reality requires a new imagination about church and mission, new kinds of leaders with a different understanding of what it means to lead, and so new forms of training.
The big question is ‘How can we equip God’s people to join in God’s mission to bring the Christian faith back to the centre of western society?’ We need missional leaders who can be shaped to equip the church so that we all can join in discerning God’s mission effectively. That is what our courses are all about – equipping the church for mission by training current and potential leaders to serve God’s mission in our contemporary Western society.
If it is your desire to take on this challenge then our courses are for you!
