“THE FORGE COURSE WILL STRETCH YOUR THINKING AND EXPAND YOUR IMAGINATION…”

ABOUT THE FORGE PIONEER COURSE & MISSIONAL ENTERPRISE COURSE

This year we are offering two streams looking at different aspects of pioneering. One stream will look at pioneering and the other will explore missional enterprise. There will be some joint teaching and overlap but some distinct parts to both streams.

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.

The purpose of the pioneering course is to validate the pioneering spirit, creating a beachhead for making Kingdom ground and championing a voice for change in church as we know it.

The pioneer course explores the questions raised by church, culture & Kingdom as well as fostering relationships between like-minded, Kingdom-seeking trail-blazers and connects them with others on the same journey.

The Forge Missional Enterprise Course is for those interested in exploring missional enterprise and redemptive entrepreneurship.

What is missional / redemptive enterprise? How does it relate to reimagining mission & church & discipleship? What new forms of leadership does it require?

What would it look like to see enterprises and business develop that are centred on participating in the redemptive activity of God’s kingdom….?

This stream of the Forge course will explore these questions with content & stories from various practitioners, as well as fostering a learning community that inspires & supports.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

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.

We are looking for people for whom this information whets their appetite and who feel the Holy Spirit stirring them to pursue this further!
