Each day’s training will center around the theme of creating reproducing incarnational communities, kingdom transformation, and personal leadership development and will be reinforced through the 6 month ONLINE Missional Church Apprenticeship Practicum (MCAP) in partnership with Missio and Matt Smay, while being hosted and facilitated on our Collegium website.

Missional Community Apprenticeship Practicum

Our practitioner based, online, Missional Community Apprenticeship Practicum is a 6-month training and coaching process that takes leaders through a wide range of resources and training, including The Tangible Kingdom Primer.  All the while, you will have access to a Missio Coach to walk alongside of you in your journey.

Why an online Process?

Based on the need for missional leaders to remain engaged in building churches in localized contexts, the extraction model of training and equipping is no longer practical or conducive to apprenticing leaders while engaged in meaningful relationships. In order to create a reproducible apprenticeship model in the early pioneering stages of missional community, there is a significant need to provide just-in-time training to missional leaders that are on-the-way, but not-yet-there in their approach and methodology. We believe technology may help multiply the training and delivery system that has for too long relied on onsite training systems. The internet now affords us the luxury and strategic possibility of taking leaders with us on an apprenticeship journey that is primarily virtual in nature and form, allowing leaders from around the world to participate.
