Forge is focused on empowering ordinary people to join in the extraordinary mission of God right where they live. The Forge Online residency is designed for leaders and local missionaries who desire to live on mission, lead missional communities, and create missional movements in their local contexts. Our missionary training is a 9-month residency (think internship). There is no quitting school/work or moving to an unfamiliar place for the time of the residency.
Since the purpose of Forge is to create missionaries, we encourage the residents to continue relationships with their neighbors, co-workers, and communities. A resident’s everyday life serves as the learning lab or context for missionary formation.
The Forge Online training helps to mature each participant as a disciple of Jesus Christ through relational connection and action-reflection learning in a collaborative learning environment.
