The Birmingham Missions Cohort (B-MC)

Disciples of Christ gathering in community and growing deeper roots in Christ to produce fruitful outreach and ministry in God’s global mission.

Spring Dates
January 18
March 29, 2022

Fall Dates
September 13November 15, 2022

The B-MC is an intentional community seeking to train and mentor young professionals (ages 21–35) who seek to use their gifts in God's global mission.

Through interactive discussions each participant is trained and mentored in Gospel foundations, Biblical missions, evangelism, prayer and local international ministry. The goal of B-MC is to ignite and equip participants toward Kingdom mission and ministry by helping them understand who they are in Christ. The overflow of this understanding is the root and fuel for ministry and mission. 

The 10-week cohort includes community discussions, mentoring, meals together, time with veteran missionaries and strategic connection points with international ministries in the city of Birmingham. B-MC is a ministry of Mission to The World (MTW) and is led by veteran MTW missionaries and local PCA ministry leaders.

Values

Gospel of the Kingdom: Our identity in Christ is the root of fruitful kingdom mission and ministry. We want to be grounded in gospel truth.

Discipleship & Evangelism: Jesus commanded the Church to make disciples. We want to disciple, to mentor, and to encourage disciple making and multiplication.

The Nations: Jesus commanded His disciples to go to all nations. We want to help people discover their role in God’s Great Commission to the nations of the world as prayers, goers, senders, mobilizers and welcomers.

The Church: God uses His Church to accomplish His Great Commission. We want to partner with the local church in Great Commission discipleship.

FAQS

What are the dates of the program?

Tuesdays from January 18–March 29, 2022. Apply now.
B-MC is a 10 week cohort (we will not meet on 3/1/22 so that people can engage with local missions conferences).

Fall dates: September 13–November 15, 2022.
Fill out our general interest form to be notified about future cohorts.

What is the time commitment for the program?

B-MC will gather on Tuesday evenings from 6:30–8:30 p.m. 

There will be some additional opportunities throughout the cohort to learn about other religions (for example, visiting a Hindu temple). We hope to connect with various local international ministries in Birmingham and to engage with internationals living in our city.

There will be some supplemental readings and assignments throughout the cohort designed to help participants better engage the various weekly discussion topics (assignments will be 30–60 mins per week).

Who can participate and what qualifications are necessary?

B-MC is looking for teachable, mature and servant hearted young professionals who have an interest in ministry and international missions. You must be a young professional or a senior in college to participate (age 21–35). This learning community is more than a 10-week Bible study. We are looking for participants who are willing to commit their time and schedule to the 10-week cohort. A desire or call to be a cross-cultural missionary is NOT a requirement to join this cohort. The content of B-MC applies to all disciples of Christ. We have space for 10 participants.

What if I can't come to all the meetings?

Much of the value of B-MC is found in the commitment of the gathered community and participation in the associated discussions. We expect participants to attend all the scheduled meetings. You will only reap from the discussions what you are willing to sow into them.

What is the size of B-MC?

We expect a community of 10 participants and 2–3 veteran missionaries and ministry leaders.

Where will the meetings be held?

Meetings will be in the homes of the B-MC leadership team and/or at a local PCA church.

Is there a fee for the program?

The program fee is $100. Scholarships are available.
The “early bird” program fee is only $50 if you apply by December 31, 2021.
