What we do

Mission Training Center develops people for God’s mission through training opportunities centered in the Bible and taught through the lens of God’s mission. So, if …

  • you want to be better prepared to join God in His mission by serving more intentionally in your congregation or community, or
  • your congregation is in need of well-trained missional leaders, or
  • you are interested in serving in organizations which require or expect a level of missional Biblical competency and knowledge, or
  • your organization is interested in training deacons for ministry, or
  • you are on a track to enter a seminary program or another organization in order to take further steps toward trained and/or professional ministry …

… consider what Mission Training Center has to offer.

The staff of Mission Training Center is available to answer your questions and guide you through the process of applying to MTC and enrolling in your classes. Feel free to reach out using whichever method works best for you.

We look forward to working with you and seeing all the ways God will employ your gifts for the furthering of his mission!
