Why train with Church Mission Society?

Be understood.

A course by pioneers for pioneers. We get it and we will help you help others get it. Our students discover a language that works.

Be recognised.

The pioneering gift should be recognised and appreciated. Our qualifications are accredited by Durham University.

Be trusted.

A whole 200+ year mission community and a vast network behind you who believe in you.

Be supported.

You can’t do this alone. You'll be part of a dynamic learning community and wider network of pioneer hubs and friends.

Be you.

Connect and learn with others like you who have discovered the freedom of not fitting in.
