Forge – CPx (Church Planting Experience)


Forge – Church Planting Experience




February 12 – July 21, 2017


FORGE Church Planting Experience is a life-changing training in Cape Town, South Africa.   We help students establish Christ-centered community in a disadvantaged region. It’s more than just a ministry training school – we’ve chosen FORGE as an icon for what happens in this 5 month period: pressure, heat, iron-sharpening-iron, transformation, joy, deep friendship, travel, communal living, sharing parables, healing the sick, baptizing, fellowship around the table, and entering a new culture as a learner… the elements of this experience evoke the imagery of a Master Craftsman at His forge, shaping instruments with loving skill.


This 5 month training will be based in Cape Town ending with a team-oriented outreach (2 months cross border).  Our focus is on developing leaders, discipling Kingdom workers to engage in healthy teams, enter cross-cultural settings well, and to make disciples who make disciples. It will run from February 12 – July 21, 2017


Our passion is Jesus, and our vision is to see Him worshipped in places and amongst people He is not yet known. Are you one of these travellers, called to love the neglected in a culture not yet your own?


Every church planting experience trains leaders in the following 10 abilities
1. Ability to abide with Jesus
2. Ability to pray passionately
3. Ability to be a healthy person on a healthy team
4. Ability to engage neglected peoples
5. Ability to honour other cultures
6. Ability to share the gospel
7. Ability to make disciples who make disciples
8. Ability to facilitate discipleship groups
9. Ability to catalyze local leaders
10. Ability to ignite Church Planting Movements
