Apprentice

In this nine-month training program, we provide young women and men with a diverse set of learning experiences and deep connections with other developing leaders across the city. At the same time, we support and train pastors as they coach their apprentices on a ministry assignment in their church.

Community Engagement Cohort

Our Community Engagement Cohort equips churches to collaborate with their communities for the common good in both word and deed. This cohort involves regular meetings for training as well as follow up coaching sessions led by a seasoned practitioner.

Residency

Our Residency Program offers developing leaders with a heart for church planting the hands on experience and practical training to help discern their calling and receive support before stepping into their new church planting journey.

Evangelism Learning Cohort

In our evangelism learning cohort, we invite leaders to first (re)center Jesus in their own lives and communities and offer practical ways they can strengthen the spiritual conversation “muscles” in their congregations. The end goal is that church leaders will be able to create environments where their church families can grow in ‘speaking’ the good news even in the face of fear and a shifting cultural climate.

Seminary

We have partnered with the Reformed Theological Seminary to offer theological education (an accredited MA in Biblical Studies) to aspiring and current church planters, pastors, ministry leaders, and marketplace leaders in NYC.
