The basis of METRO is a commitment to obey Jesus’ command to “make disciples”. This represents a unique opportunity for your church to be engaged in the task of training men and women in ministry for Christ in such a way that they “think like Jesus, serve like Jesus, and be like Jesus”.

METRO is a two year full-time traineeship, based on the program outlined here. To get the most out of  your two year program, however, it is necessary to prepare in a number of ways, especially with regard to the key relationships involved. For this reason, we strongly suggest that you do a prep year.
