Equipping Missional Leaders

Forge is a residential learning experience in a relational and communal context with ongoing support and resources. We seek to create and establish networks of learners and practitioners designed to teach people to translate the story of Jesus and engage their culture.

To do this, Forge cultivates learning communities across the United States and the world by identifying, developing, and nurturing missional leaders. Forge does not plant churches or run ministries, but instead trains missionaries to thrive in whatever context they are called, be that a local church, a non-profit, a neighborhood, a professional network, etc.


Forge is unique in that it allies innovative church plants, mission ventures, a wide variety of theological colleges, and a number of major evangelical denominations and agencies. The Forge network is led by active missional practitioners who are able to offer significant experiential training.

Church Training

Forge Louisville helps guide church leaders in equipping their church to join in the extraordinary mission of God right where they live, work, and play. 


The Forge Louisville training helps to mature each participant as a disciple of Jesus Christ through personal relationships and action-reflection learning in a combination of one-on-one and collaborative learning environments.
