Missions Discipleship Training (MDT) is an intensive training programme aimed at equipping you for a missional life wherever God calls. We help you grow in your journey as a follower of Christ through four key areas:
Cross-cultural Community Life - We live in a vibrant multinational community, learning how to celebrate our diversity and grow together.
One-on-One Mentoring - We aim to prepare you, equip you and expand your world view as you discover who you are in Christ and all that He has prepared in advance for you to do!
Study-based Knowledge - Our programme will take you through a discipleship module, give you a structure of spiritual discipline and cover an introduction to missions.
Practical Ministry Experience - We take you on outreaches across Europe to introduce you to a variety of communities and ministries that God is using to build His Kingdom.
For the last five years the MDT programme has been changing lives and inspiring people to follow Christ long after the program is over!
Europe has been instrumental to the growth of global Christianity. In the 1700s a wave of Europeans began sharing the gospel across the world. Despite a rich history, including the birth of the Reformation movement 500 years ago, Europe is now considered the most secular continent. The heart of Missions Discipleship Training is to see the Kingdom of God built in Europe. The training, a combination of theory and practice, is divided into two halves: in the first half there are multiple short-term outreaches and in the second there is one long-term outreach.
The teaching is divided into six modules:
Develop a culturally-specific and biblical model of sharing the gospel in postmodern Europe.
Discover what it means to follow Jesus and grow closer to Him. Uncover your identity and gifts.
Explore who God is and what we as Christians believe.
Learn about different beliefs and how to share the gospel with people from different backgrounds.
See the Kingdom of God from His perspective and join in building it now.
Find the scarlet thread which runs through every book, passage and verse of the Bible and discover how it binds Scripture together.

This is Christs call to all who believe in Him. The heartbeat of the MDT is geared toward helping you deepen your relationship with Christ and realise your place in building His Kingdom here on earth.

MDT is a step into missions. We encourage you to get the spiritual, financial and moral support of family, friends and your church.
Cost: You will need 600- 800 €/month, depending on your outreach placement in the second half, to cover the costs for accommodation, food, travel within Europe and training material. Again, ask your church and friends to support you and be part of this mission: To bring Christ back to Europe.
N.B. The training will be conducted in English.
