IS GOD LEADING YOU INTO CREATING NEW EXPRESSIONS OF CHURCH?

ABOUT THE FORGE PIONEER COURSE

The Forge Pioneer Course is a leadership training and mentoring programme for those who sense that God might be leading them into creating new expressions of church. Through a combination of teaching, mentoring and assignments, our aim is to prepare people to launch into what God is calling them to do. Forge Ireland is led by active missional practitioners who are able to offer significant experiential training in pioneering contexts.

PIONEER TRAINING

We are looking for people who are maturing Christians; those thinking they may be called to pioneering new expressions of church, who are able to set aside this ‘season’ for a period of investment.

Entry to the Forge pioneer course is not based on academic ability but rather on calling, gifting and potential. We are looking for evidence of a relationship with God, and a growing and outward expression of faith which is maturing and bearing fruit. Each person must be able to commit to the training, personal study and time in their mission context. They must be willing to serve, be teachable, self-supporting and self-motivated. We are looking for people who are willing to serve in a local church context and see Forge as a means of achieving this.

COURSE DETAILS

For the 2021-22 course we are exploring a hybrid of online, in-person and residential training.

Our training will primarily be delivered through 3 Hubs:

BELFAST

DUBLIN

ONLINE

Throughout the year we’ll meet in these Hubs for training days. These will be a mixture of onscreen and in-person teaching and breakout conversations. We’d suggest that you make every effort to join your nearest geographical Hub but there is also an online option. All 3 Hubs will come together for a January residential weekend.
