Be Transformed

A foundation year in discipleship and practical ministry

The heart of Be Transformed is for you to have a year where you can grow into the person and leader that God wants you to be.

Trainees will study on one of two pathways: Children and Families or Youth Ministry. In addition to the teachings at Conference, you will receive four core books which we will explore together. You will also be provided with materials to help you develop your practical ministry skills including leading groups, teaching children and young people and developing your time management and productivity.

As part of this course, you will be working towards the Moorlands College Engaging with Applied Theology course which is accredited by NCFE at Level 3.
