Ministers in Training (MIT)

Developing and deploying transformational Kingdom leaders for the church and world.

Followers of Jesus are not merely working to prop up the programs of a religious organization; we are giving ourselves to propel a revolution that will transform the lives and eternal destinies of people by the life, love, and power of Jesus. 

Yes, that movement centers around the Church and her ministries. But that’s just the start. 

Every disciple of Jesus has a crucial role to play in Christ’s mission of love to the world. God rescues us from our sin. Designs us for His purpose. Empowers us with His strength.

  • And then He places us to live out our ordinary days in a particular place in the world -where we live, work, learn and play — with particular people and their particular needs in order to lead others towards the life, peace, joy, and hope of Jesus.   

In this sense, every disciple of Jesus is a leader, or minister, in God’s Kingdom, sent into the world to represent, make much of, and point others to Jesus. 

  • How do we prepare for life as a minister? The Bible calls the church to “equip the saints for the work of ministry” (Eph. 4:12) We are committed to train and equip disciples to have a Kingdom impact not just at church, but in every sphere of life, every day.   

Ministers in Training at Living Hope (MiT) is a discipleship and leadership training initiative designed to develop gospel-saturated disciples who will intentionally lead those in the home, the church, and the world to follow Jesus and live in the way of His Kingdom. This year-long training opportunity occurs in a cohort setting with other brothers and sisters in Christ. 

  • With two specific tracks of training and an intentional personal development process, there is a place in MiT for every disciple who wants to grow stronger in faith and more joyfully effective as a representative of King Jesus.
