What is ENSM?
ENSM is an eighteen-month comprehensive course for equipping ministers of the gospel. Most of the course is completed at home through personal study and cohort-based video conversations whilst continuing your usual work or ministry. In addition, you will participate in two compulsory residentials. It is for those called to both vocational and lay ministry and is a prerequisite for ordination in Every Nation Europe.
We have designed the course to be built around specific outcomes for effective leadership:
First, there is a Core Curriculum of thirteen distance learning courses. This is completed by everyone through personal study. The material will be consolidated through a monthly video meeting with your web-based cohort and a course assignment.
Second, each student will enroll in a ministry track designed to facilitate growth in a specific area of ministry. This includes a quarterly track video meeting and supplemental reading.
Finally, both the Core Curriculum and ministry tracks are enhanced through the two residential weeks with live teaching, group discussions, and personal reflection. All learning platforms are designed to be collaborative and participatory.
Europe remains a strategic mission field for God’s harvest, being home to many global top-100 universities.
The Every Nation School of Ministry, Europe (ENSM) exists to equip leaders for effective ministry in Europe. Using a multi-platform approach including residential weeks, distance studying, local church ministry and expert/mentor input, we will offer a core curriculum with specialised ministry tracks.
Who’s it for?
The course is open to anyone with their senior pastor’s approval and actively serving in their local church
Those applying to ENSM will have completed their local church discipleship pathway and will be actively serving in a leadership role. Many people will participate in a local-church based internship along with completing their ENSM studies. Whereas a bachelor’s degree is not a prerequisite, most people entering ENSM will have completed university. Each local church has a pathway by which people called by God can be equipped, empowered and placed in ministry. Although there are a variety of ways by which people respond to God’s call into full-time ministry, here are three typical pathways:
Church Leadership Pathway
Campus Ministry Pathway
Church Planter Pathway
