EquipMETRO Application

EquipMETRO is a one-year traineeship aiming to give an adult, of any age, experience and training in ministry. Trainees will be encouraged to be, think and serve like Jesus in their context as well as to explore new areas of service.

This traineeship will be tailored to the specific areas of interest to the trainee (eg. women, children).

This happens as trainees attend the Engage Leaders conference, read Christian books, work through ministry papers, meet one-to-one with their trainer, and serve in ministry in their local church.
