We hope to see movements of churches peopled by followers of Christ who are Kingdom-minded, open-hearted, and practically skilled, whose involvement is contextualized, sacrificial, joyful, and sustainable. Serge’s Apprenticeship seeks to equip and disciple new generations of leadership for desperately needed, kingdom-minded, grace-centered churches here in London and beyond. Loving people cross-culturally is a way of answering Jesus’ call to lay down your life for him. You’ll learn this practically and in community by being placed on a specific Serge team. You could live among the alternative, marginalized, and urban poor populations in East London.
Vision for Serge London Apprentices
Servants who are becoming Christ-dependent, Spirit-empowered, and passionate for the Kingdom of God – in their home cultures and cross-culturally. An incarnational community where the gospel is lived out as an authentic witness to what we say we believe about forgiveness, unity, and redemption Ordinary individuals who aren’t afraid to ask the question, “What does it look like to lay down my life?” Believers who set aside their own cultural trappings in order to see the beauty of God as expressed in other cultures People living out their calling to BE as well as their calling to DO, who are beginning to understand who God has created and is redeeming them to be.
