The Office of Church Engagement (OCE) partners with ministries to equip disciples and engages culture with the good news of Jesus through its global network of ministry partners. As the church discerns how to effectively engage our rapidly changing culture, the OCE functions as a resource for deepening existing forms of ministry and expanding new forms of ministry.
Applications are available during the fall, and membership into the Ministry Partner Network (MPN) is granted for the following calendar year, beginning the first of January. Annual membership cost is $500, and additional costs depend on the types of resources or programs that will best assist your ministry. These programs are developed by listening to the needs of our ministry partners and their ministry contexts.

- Academy of Christian Discipleship
