Equipping a New Generation of Leaders

About the Formations Program

The Formations Program is a discipleship program that empowers the body for health and maturity to continue the ministry of Jesus locally and globally. It provides the curriculum, overseas practicum, facilitator training, and network needed for a local church or sending agency to form and train a cohort of individuals who are open to serving in North Korea or wherever the Lord may lead them.

The program is experienced in a cohort that consists of six modules of the five formations and the Christ-centered Unity Paradigm. Although it’s recommended that you finish it in one year, it can be extended to two year. It is weekly online training with one physical retreat in your country and practicum in one of five locations around the world.

The students who complete all modules, the practicum, and the monthly NK studies zoom calls will be awarded with a Certificate of Completion and receive access to the Formations Program Alumni Network, eligibility for certain internships, and our endorsement for overseas service.

What Our Students Have to Say

Program Structure

Six 8 Weekly Courses With Local / Online Cohort

Throughout these courses, students will experience a feeling of their formation as they process what they are learning and what God is speaking to them in the community setting and with their mentor. It is an opportunity for entrusting themselves wholly into God’s hands, nurturing the fruit of their growing spiritual formation, and exploring their role in our collective calling as Christ ambassadors on this earth.

Empower ZOOM Meetings

We believe that God is calling the global Church — with our many parts and giftings — to come together to fulfill our calling to reach the ends of the earth, including the nation of North Korea. We believe the people of North Korea is precious to God, with her own unique role and contribution to make in the world. These bi-monthly global conference calls with experienced field workers will give students the opportunity to interact directly with those on the field and others with a similar heart.

Practicum in Korea

During the practicum in Korea, the curriculum invites students to widen their worldview as they learn through cultural formation to take the posture of a learner while delving deeper into application of the Unity Paradigm. Relational formation in this session becomes even more relevant as fellows develop skills for living and working in community.
