Application Process

Step 1. Find a Cohort

If you are not already connected with a cohort facilitator, contact us for more information about available cohorts.

Step 2. Submit Application

The Formations Program can be completed in one or two year. Your initial commitment is to complete the first of six courses lasting eight weeks each, with the intention of continuing the program thereafter. The exact schedule and pacing of each cohort will be determined by the facilitator.

Step 3. Request recommendation from local church

We believe that the relationship with the local church is essential in the formation, sending, and ongoing support of cross-cultural workers, so we strongly consider the recommendation and support of the local church in students’ participation in the program.
