Training in Mission - Diploma in Mission Studies

The Council for World Mission is now accepting applications for the Training in Mission - Diploma in Mission Studies 2020 Programme. This will be held from 16th April to 30th October 2020.

The Training in Mission Programme - Diploma in Mission Studies promotes leadership and service to the church and God’s mission, by providing opportunity for a group of young people to learn about mission in theory and in practice through classes, exposure visits, projects and hands-on work in various contexts for 6½ months.

Training in Mission Programme - Diploma in Mission Studies is open for all interested applicants aged 18 to 30 years old at the start of the Programme, single and not an ordained minister.

The Programme aims to provide training for life and is intended to be a stage in Christian formation which helps each participant in a life–long involvement with the mission of the church. It also aims to offer training which provides wider vision; deepened commitment; and a strengthened sense of fellowship and partnership with other fellow Christians around the world, particularly through CWM member-churches.

The Training in Mission is now transformed into Diploma in Mission Studies where qualified participants will receive the Diploma Mission Studies at the end of the Programme. Graduates will possess qualification which recognises applied leadership skills in mission and education to enhance employment opportunities or to work in a voluntary capacity. CWM’s member churches will benefit by having qualified individuals with the knowledge and skills to successfully lead areas of responsibility in a wide range of Christian mission roles.

If you are interested in applying for this exciting opportunity, in the first instance, please make an inquiry to Yvonne Campbell. The Congregational Federation has the capacity to nominate 2 young people from its churches, and CWM will select 12 applicants for the programme.
