MDTs exist to DISCIPLE and EQUIP believers for missions, as we SEND them to be involved in
seeing vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached being established.
At MDT Ireland we build our programme around four key areas:
Tue 1 Feb 2022 to Thu 30 Jun 2022
Tue 12 Oct 2021
18 - 30
COMMUNITY - You will get to know people of different ages, cultures and theological understanding as you live, work and study in a vibrant community of believers from all over the world
MENTORING - As a trainee you will be assigned a experienced missionary who will be your mentor throughout the programme. Mentoring takes place about once a week and the purpose of the mentor is to walk alongside you as you learn, experience, are challenged and grow.
KNOWLEDGE - Through lectures from experienced teachers and missionaries, along with assigned reading and small groups, you will study a wide variety of topics. All of this is aimed to equip you in understanding more about God, His word and His world. There are also practical workshops giving you tools for missions and ministry.
EXPERIENCE - You will come alongside churches and through this you'll be exposed to many different sides of ministry. Whatever needs there are in the community, you'll have the opportunity to help!
