Introducing the Porterbrook Training Network

I have recently begun working with the Porterbrook Training Network in South Africa.

The Porterbrook Network is a developing initiative aimed at contributing to a wider church planting movement by equipping individuals and churches to rediscover mission as their DNA through training, and resourcing.  In practice a distance learning programme for developing missional leaders coming from the context of  The Crowded House network,  Although Porterbrook Training is now a separate entity with a wider ministry.

Our hope is to see churches reaching diverse peoples with the transforming Gospel of God (Word) and with a visible demonstration that the reign of Jesus is good (Christian Community).

What is the Porterbrook Network about?

  • Biblical – deeply rooted in the Scriptures
  • Practical – rich theology, applied in detail and relevant to real life
  • Relational – because the Christian life was never meant to be lived alone
  • Contextual – remain in your normal work and Christian community
  • Accessible – no prior theological education required (average competency in English is needed)
  • Flexible – schedule is adaptable to suit your circumstances
  • Affordable – quality training at a reasonable price
