Men & Women’s Development

 

Do you want to grow in your faith and love for Jesus Christ?

The program consists of nine months of training for men & women who aspire to lead their family and to lead God’s church in God’s mission to redeem and restore creation. Training includes intense theological study, cohort-style development, regular coaching, experiential learning and content-specific teaching. Students will sit under the teaching of Austin Stone pastors in weekly classroom training, all-day seminars and retreats. Outside the classroom students will gather to process course material, share ministry experience and sharpen one another in their coach-led learning cohorts.

The Men and Women’s Development Program is a church-based higher-education program built to train men & women for biblically qualified leadership in the home, church, city and world.

  • THEOLOGICAL STUDY

    Learn to see the beauty of Christ and become an accurate handler of the Word of God.

  • EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

    Learning is best done with a specific ministry in mind, along with opportunities for reflection and feedback.

  • COHORT-STYLE DEVELOPMENT

    Life change happens best when reflection, cooperative learning and accountability are in community.

  • COACHING & MENTORING

    Each cohort has a coach who provides mentorship, gospel counseling, tutoring, advising and shepherding.

  • CONTENT-SPECIFIC TRAINING

    A diverse range of classes and advanced tracks to train men & women specific to their calling.
