In 2010 we noticed a call to full-time and bi-vocational ministry captured the hearts of many people in Ocean County, NJ. Each student indicated their intention to become, pastors, worship leaders, evangelist, church planters and international workers as God called them. Since 2010, over 100 men and women heard Gods call on their lives. However, due to where they were at in their stages of lives each student could not go back to college to pursue their educational requirements to become official workers with the C&MA. The cost of education and length of preparation time with traditional approaches has resulted in many of these individuals not pursuing their callings; as most were also working full time jobs and had families. Out of this launched Metro School of Leadership and Ministry.
Metro School of Leadership and Ministry is an affordable and accessible training option, set in the context of the local churches, this has been the next step for those who are ready to say ‘Yes’ to the call to ministry.
We hope to develop highly-effective leaders through vocational theological education and practical ministry experience for kingdom service Here, There, and Everywhere, at the lowest possible cost.
