The Pathfinder Institute is a 9-month advanced study program focused on developing, sending, and supporting the next generation of dynamic church planters.
Each Fall, we hand-select five families from among our pool of applicants to receive two semesters of biblical instruction, leadership training, administrative experience, and holistic support during their time in the program. Upon completion, they will become a part of our church-planting network, The Pathfinder Collective, and will move to their city of interest to begin the beautiful pioneering work of pastoral ministry.
