In 2018, The Discipleship Institute will be offering training opportunities for both Glen Waverley Anglican Church members & Melbourne church leaders in Mission, Discipleship and Leadership.
We are offering five 'Equip' training days for GWAC members around mentoring, discipleship, life groups, prophecy and evangelism. Each training day will run from 10am - 3pm on a Saturday and will include a mix of speakers, workshops and interactive time to work with your team members. See the schedule of dates below and follow the links to sign up. Each day costs $10 per person to cover costs and the provision of lunch.

Missional Leadership Network
We will also be facilitating two Missional Leader Network Days for Melbourne leaders engaging in mission, discipleship and leadership in different contexts. This will happen on 19th May and 25th August, 2018.
These events will be $10 per person, run on a Saturday and are intended for leaders to bring their team, grow as a team on mission and network with other like-spirited individuals and teams. Starting at 10am and concluding at 3pm, the day will include guest speakers, collaborative learning opportunities and sharing from different churches around their missional initiatives. While this is an invitation only network, please contact us if you feel this would be a network you would like to be part of.
Ministry Development Program
In February 2018, we commenced (by invitation) the Ministry Development Program for two cohorts of leaders.
The first cohort is for young adults engaged in significant ministry leadership, focused on growing from 'leading self' to 'leading others'. This will centre around GWAC's 2018 theme of 'Celebrating Surrender' and what it might look like to surrender yourself fully to God, and lead others to do the same. As part of this there will also be a focus on ministry skills, calling and spiritual disciplines among other teaching on leadership and team culture. This cohort will be led by Bree Mills, Bre Finnigan and Drew Mellor.
The second is for more mature Christian leaders focusing on growing as disciple makers and culture leaders. This group will explore the same theme of 'Celebrating Surrender' and while there will still be a focus on individual growth, the primary focus will be on 'leading others' and 'leading culture'. There will be an important practical element through the mentoring of one of the young adult cohort, that will be reflected on as part of the discipleship group times. This cohort will be primarily led by Drew Mellor with others brought in for training as required.
