The Missionary Training School in Atlanta is a five-month intensive missions program that includes four hours of classroom training in the morning coupled with hands-on outreach in the afternoon, so that students can put into practice everything they are learning. We read through much of the Bible during the program as well as many other books to help us understand God’s Word, missions strategy, and cross cultural communication. The academic side of the school can be challenging as we usually read one book per week, but we also combine that with group discussions, videos, and guest speakers to keep the missionary training exciting.
Our school and housing is located in Clarkston, GA right in the middle of 22 very multi-ethnic apartment complexes. Known as the “most diverse square mile in America,” Clarkston is home to refugees representing 65+ countries and 110+ dialects!
You can walk out your door and have the chance to minister to Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, and atheists! Not only are we learning about the Bible and missions theory / principles, we’re going out and sharing the love of Christ daily being not just hearers of the Word, but DOERS.
* Cost is for single students who will live in group housing. Married students or students who already live in Atlanta and want to commute can check out our MTS ATL FAQs.
