"...As the Father sent me so I am sending you." - Jesus (John 20:21)

As Christ-followers we are called to be a "sent" people into the world as Gospel-carriers and peace-makers. We carry the message of hope in Jesus Christ incarnationally in the way we live, work and play. Today, our faith is often defined by simply going to a church event on weekends. Forge Colorado Springs provides coaching, consulting, support and training to individuals, church-planters, businesses, and existing churches that wish to form their methods around missional practice and incarnational living.


Who are the people best-suited for Forge?

The Forge training experience is designed for anyone—a bishop or a bartender, a mechanic or a mom...who,

  • Burns to see lives transformed outside the walls of the local church sunday gathering.

  • Desires to be trained to understand and live a mission-shaped way of life.

  • Wants to be a revolutionary follower of Christ right in their own neighborhood and context.

  • Feels a sense of calling, but wants a path and curriculum outside of conventional vocational ministry or seminary.
