Join a missional learning community doing local church based youth ministry and learning and growing together. You can come for a gap year called Greenhouse where you live in a team, work in churches, go on mission trips to places like Dublin or Moldova and experience Jesus changing your DNA to be missional and to understand more of your calling. It lasts 10 months.
You can also do on-the-job training and aim for an Honours Degree through ForMission College in Youth Ministry either in your home church or one that we can put you in one in another area, Our heart is to equip you to be a missional youth leader/minister.
During your time in Greenhouse or on the degree, we have awesome 5 day conferences every 2 months where you’re helped with your studies, challenged in your lifestyle, discipled, mentored and encouraged by mixing with students from the UK and Europe. Joining us is like joining a family! The conference is actually held in a beautiful converted watermill up in Shakespeare country in the Cotswolds – the heart of England.

On the other hand if you’re already engaged in youth ministry here in the UK, then you can still link up with us and experience the conferences join an international team with a passionate missional heart!
It is Affordable, Practical, Biblical and very Missional.
