Gap Year Ministry Foundation Program
for young Christians

WHAT IS IT?

The GAP Year Ministry Foundation Program - or G.A.P. (God Actioned Program) is a year long intensive and essential training for young adults who are seeking a proper grounding and instruction from God's Word for life in general and leadership training for work in the ministry in particular.

It's a mentorship and discipleship program administered by the eldership of the church and training will be executed by various appointed and experienced teachers in a particular field. The result is a "finishing and polishing" of a young adult in Christ to a more seasoned and mature member of the body - able to stand on God's word in every situation.

 “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”  
1 Timothy 4:12
