Developing a movement intelligence goes beyond head knowledge, it is learning to engage in grace-filled practices that reshape our desire for God and his kingdom. Here are some training opportunities you should know about.


The V3 Movement is a training network that deeply understands the terrain of mission in the West. Every year V3 coaches church planters all over North America, from places like Seattle to Miami, from Honolulu to Toronto, from L.A. to New York, and from Dallas to Atlanta in an 18 month cohort. Research shows that church planters who engage in an in-depth training experience, alongside experienced coaches, are more likely to thrive in their efforts at church planting. This is why our cohorts provide strategic coaching for planters as you journey through the formative phases of planting movemental churches. The training is holistic, communal, peer-based, practice and process oriented, and equips you in transferable tools for discipling your team. You will discover the grassroots work of movement: tight-knit community, life-forming discipleship, locally rooted presence and boundary crossing mission.


The Praxis Gathering is a unique church planting conference that is passionate about the space where real-time practice collides with rich theology, followed by deep reflection. Annually 200+ practitioners from around the country gather together in Washington D.C. to learn and dialogue around the hands-on work of missional presence in our neighborhoods and networks. There is a movement afoot calling us to rediscover those on-the-ground essentials for being the church. Gather with us to be equipped, nourished and sent back into the world.

Masters of Arts in Global Leadership [MAGL] Imagine being part of a peer learning community, or “cohort,” of diverse individuals who are leading and serving in various ways around the globe. In Fuller’s Master of Arts in Global Leadership (MAGL) students journey with their cohort through a program that builds on each person’s experience and emphasizes practical application. Students wrestle with theoretical concepts and exchange input with cohort peers and seasoned faculty, applying newfound insights to their roles not only as leaders, but as disciples, mentors, and life-long learners, which the structure of the program itself models.

Primarily online, with just one two-week trip to Colorado Springs and one to Pasadena, and electives making up to 50 percent of the program tailorable to your needs, the MAGL offers flexibility for today’s invested leaders.
