International Intensive

The question of a biblical ecclesiology is not some idle or mere theological question. It’s a question of spiritual awakening and the glory of God.” – Yevgeny, Russian pastor, Intensive participant

Help Train 100 International Pastors

Three times a year, 9Marks hosts a nine-day International Intensive. Our goal is to provide a deeper and contextualized think-tank approach to ecclesiology. This extended, language-specific training gives international leaders the experience of a “mini” internship in the context of a local church. The participants receive books to read prior to their trip, along with other resources that they read during the Intensive. In addition to this, they also participate in over twenty hours of group discussions contextualizing the content to their own cultures. The primary focus of these nine days is a biblical philosophy of ministry and deeper understanding of church membership, discipline, elders and worship in a healthy church.
