Kairos for Experienced Mission Leaders

From time to time, we run special Kairos courses for experienced mission leaders: trainers, pastors and mobilisers. This course includes a training session to enable the leader to run the course for themselves subsequently.

These courses are held as residential courses and are, we regret, by invitation only.

What people have been saying about the Kairos course:

"My whole perspective on life and being a Christian has been changed and broadened. I’ve realised the world is at the core of who God is and who we should be! We have something amazing to give the world!”

Mel Page

"I am so excited about the Kairos course! The most foundational thing in my early years as a Christian was understanding God's heart for the nations and my own lifelong place in that. It will be an incredible, unique investment of three weekends - if you can do it!”

Ian Nicholson, 24-7 Missions Director, Guildford

"Through Kairos, God helped me discover again, his heart and passion for his lost children. I was stirred by the fact God wanted and needed me to rise up and play my part in reaching the lost and making disciples. Finally it has helped me see how to better support and serve those who are called to overseas mission...”

Jez Cromie

"Kairos gave me an incredible overview of the world-wide mission scene and helped me make sense of many strands of my mission involvement. But more than that, it challenged me deeply, renewed my passion and repositioned me for the future. In an age of globalisation every Christian needs to be challenged and equipped to discover their part in world mission, both at home and abroad. I believe Kairos is accessible, prophetic and highly motivational in its scope.”

Paul Lancaster

"The prayer focus on the course for the nations has given me a greater passion to pray for those from seventy nations who are living here in our city.”

Steve Lowton
