The Academy is a 2 days a week course for ages 18-30 that is run in Hereford in the UK.  It runs as a year long course and was started in 2009 to help raise up young leaders. Those young leaders have gone on to plant churches all over the world since then. 

It is designed not only to teach you more about the Bible and the church but predominantly about who you are called to be. 

We cover subjects such as pastoral care, church planting, character studies, leadership training, personal discipline, devotion and so much more. 

One of the most powerful components of the Academy is that you pursue being more like Jesus with other like minded believers who are there to spur you on in your faith. You will make friendships and memories that last a lifetime. 

The Academy is a residentail programme where you live at 'The Forge' in Hereford alongside other Academy students. 



The cost is £3000 for the academic year of teaching. 

Plus £450 a month for the monthly cost of living at the forge.
