About the Partnership

You will have the opportunity to work on actual projects in your church, with mentoring by respected seminary professors and experienced ministry leaders from 12Stone. This accessible program will connect you with a fellow group of ministry leaders toward kingdom impact. During the year you will study mostly online, but each summer you will gather at 12Stone for a week of personal and spiritual development with your professors and 12Stone pastors. You may not be called to be a pastor, but if you are called to be a high caliber leader in your church, this is for you. If you are ready to take your leadership to the next level, contact us today.
