What you get trained in matters.
Many missionaries are pursuing church-planting strategies limited to only one church being planted. In Equip’s missionary training program, we draw from extensive research studying the 80+ church-planting movements going on around the world right now to train you in planting your first church so that it will reproduce itself many generations deep. Your training and mentorship will include foundational principles for making disciples and multiplying churches as well as personal development, culture adjustment and daily hands-on ministry experience.
Each trainee will get involved in our community center, which provides language and adjustment classes for migrants, refugees and international students in transition. You will have many chances to build relationships and share Jesus every day by doing life with these communities and seeing God transform their life.
Who you get trained by matters.
During your time in Rome, you will work alongside our long-term team, including experienced missionaries and Muslim-background believers to launch church-planting movements among diaspora unreached people groups and send migrants on their way with the Gospel.
How you get trained matters.
Many Bible schools and missionary training programs leave you front-loaded with teaching without giving you much opportunity to put what you have learned into practice. At International Project, we truly believe that “experience is the best teacher”, so we have designed the Apprenticeship with a “just-in-time training” approach. This means that as soon as you are trained in a church-planting principle, you will have ample opportunity to put it into practice.
Some highlights of your Rome Apprenticeship experience will include:
- Developing a ministry plan with your team to reach the refugees in Rome and spend 9 months putting it into practice.
- Facilitating Discovery Bible Studies with local families in the migrant community.
- Learning to “live out loud” by sharing the Gospel numerous times throughout the year.
