The course has 3 phases. The 1st phase will take place in Maidstone, United Kingdom within the Jubilee Training Centre environment. The 2nd phase will take place in Modimolle (Nylstroom), South Africa. The 3rd and final phase will be back in Maidstone for a mission debrief and assessment including graduation.
At the start of each course the students travel to a different location for orientation. This is an exceptional time where friendships are forged and team is built. Saturation’s flexible tailor-made approach produces a unique course each year that is adapted to the needs of the individual and the flavour of the group dynamic. The course is broken down into 6 modules, each providing a block of theory which is then followed up by practical application and assessment.
Module 1 Walking as a son
Module 2 Introduction to Missions
Module 3 Spiritual Preparation for Missions
Module 4 Foundational Mission Preparation
Module 5 Cross Cultural Communication
Module 6 Introduction to Primary Health Care
Module 7 Outdoor Survival Skills
The students are required to read a number of books during the year and submit written assignments.
The first 5 months of classroom training is full time and non-residential from Monday to Friday. The taking part in extra practical equipping, community projects and local missions is required in addition to the lectures. Phase 1 runs from September to January.
Practical training – 5 Months Mission to South Africa
Phase 2 is full of exciting and unique opportunities. From February to June, the student go on a 5 months international mission together as a team and is a period in which the bulk of the theory is put into practice. Based in an existing resource Church and Training Centre, you will live on site with your leaders, and from there have involvement with existing community outreach programs and the pioneering of new projects locally and internationally.
The projects include:
Aids (HIV) clinics
Schools work amongst the underprivileged
Youth Camp facilitating
Short-term mission to a neighbouring African country
The Koinonia Training Centre base is ideally situated on a beautiful farm where you will live alongside other training centre students and operate under the covering of Koinonia Resource Church eldership.
Debrief and evaluation
Phase 3, one of the most important parts of the course, is when we assess the quality of the students’ work and the practical knowledge and experience gained.
The year ends with a special Graduation Banquet and Ceremony weekend at the Jubilee Training Centre.
