Helping birth and nurture the missional church across Europe

“We cannot be afraid to question structures and methods that once caused us to thrive and succeed. Church is a movement, not a monument.”

ABOUT FORGE

NURTURING & RESOURCING THE MISSIONAL CHURCH

Forge Europe exists to help nurture and resource the missional church in Europe.

In order to do this, Forge Europe cultivates missional community across the country by identifying, developing, and nurturing missional leaders. Forge does not plant churches or run ministries, but instead trains missionaries to thrive in whatever context they are called to, be that a local church, a neighbourhood, a professional network, etc. Through a combination of the Forge Pioneer Course, other training events and resources, we aim to nurture and resource the missional church throughout Europe.

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 weekends, practical placements, mentoring and assignments, our aim is to prepare people to launch into what God is calling them to do.

The purpose of the pioeering 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.

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 all the training, mentoring and an agreed level of ministry placement for at least a year. 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.

A MISSIONARY TRAINING NETWORK

While Forge doesn’t plant churches, we do champion and connect missional pioneers. Forge is unique in that it allies innovative church plants, mission ventures, academic theological training, and a number of denominations and agencies. The Forge network is led by active missional practitioners who are able to offer significant experiential training in pioneering contexts.
