SENT (Church Planting Certificate)

Do you have a pioneering spirit?
Is God calling you to plant a church?

Morling College is committed to equipping the whole believer to take the whole gospel to the whole world. SENT is Morling’s internal Church Planting Certificate. As a one-year part-time experience pioneering church planting leaders will be equipped to take the gospel to the world.

What to expect:

SENT is for anyone who isn’t simply interested in “content download” but wants to be trained in an environment where practical application, relevant experience, and formation are crucial for learning. You will have the opportunity to connect with other church planters who have a dream for planting, as well as be trained by some of our best practitioners and theoreticians inside and outside of our denomination.
