FORGE MIDLANDS next programme start
Time & Location
About the Event
Forge cultivates missional communities around the world by identifying, developing, and training missional leaders, teams and practitioners. Forge aims to mobilise ordinary people to become missional and thrive in whatever context they are called to. This may be in pioneering new things, working in and through an already existing church, serving in a local community, church planting, and professional or relational network. The Forge network is led by active ‘missional practitioners’ who are able to offer significant experiential training in pioneering contexts.
Who are we looking for? We are looking for passionate people who are keen to mature as Christians exploring ways in which they can more fully engage in missional living. They must be open to learning, growing, working with others and willing to take risks and step out in an adventure with God.
