by CWM Communications Team

Could you be called to participate in Christian formation which contributes to a lifelong involvement in God’s mission through the church?

Are you open to a wider vision, deeper commitment, and a stronger sense of teamwork and partnership with other Christians around the world, particularly through CWM member churches?

We invite you to apply for CWM’s Training in Mission (TIM) – Diploma in Mission Studies Programme held from 15 June to 30 November 2023 in Fiji and Jamaica.

For over 40 years now, the TIM Programme has been part of CWM’s efforts to equip young people for the ministry and mission of its member churches while enhancing the scope for the church’s public witness. Among other initiatives, TIM empowers a new generation of leaders with a practical and radical understanding of what witnessing to Christ means.

TIM provides the opportunity for youths aged 18 to 30 years old, single and not yet ordained – to 6.5 months of intensive mission learning in theory and in practice through classes, exposure visits, projects and hands-on work in various contexts.

Participants who complete the assessment requirements of the TIM Programme will receive a Diploma in Mission Studies, a qualification which recognises its graduates’ applied leadership skills in mission and education to enhance employment opportunities or to work in a voluntary capacity. CWM’s member churches and ecumenical partners benefit from the nurturing of qualified individuals with the knowledge and skills to successfully lead areas of responsibility in a wide range of Christian mission roles.
