The Reach Programme - discipleship training year



Reach is a cross-cultural discipleship and ministry training programme. Would you like to join us for the coming year?

Through befriending and sharing the love of Jesus with international students, you will participate in God's global mission - and have opportunity to grow in your relationship with Christ and develop your God-given gifts in the process.
What will it involve?
  • Practical Ministry  Hands-on involvement in a range of ministry opportunities: welcoming & befriending, discipleship & evangelistic Bible study, organising social events, being part of a World Café team
  • Group Training  Four residential conferences plus local programmes 
  • Personal study  Time each week for core and elective Study
  • Mentored Supervision  An experienced FI staff worker meeting with you regularly
The programme is flexible, so with your staff mentor you will design your Personal Reach Plan, appropriate for where you are now and preparing you to be a life-long ambassador for Christ. 
We see the year as an investment into each Reach participant, and recognise that Christian formation involves the development of the whole person. The Reach programme, therefore, is not simply about learning the skills of cross-cultural ministry, but also about developing conviction, values and character.
Who is it for?
1) Those who love Jesus and want to introduce international students to Him!
2) Graduates aged 21-30 years
3) Fluent English speakers
Start date: 1st September 2020
Cost: £625 (contribution towards training, set books & resources) plus living expenses
We will accept applications up until 31st March 2020.
