What Is It?

The course involves classroom teaching, practical learning opportunities, personal tutoring and leadership experience, and is created to raise and release leaders who will live with a passion for Jesus, and build his church.

About the Academy

During your time with us in the Freedom Academy you will develop your foundational understanding of the church; its purpose, its role, its responsibility. You will grow your personal relationship with Jesus; prayer life, devotional reading and worship. You will receive input that will shape and strengthen your character. You will grow your ability to work independently and as part of a team.

You will also receive one-to-one tutoring from one of our Freedom staff. This year is designed to develop your understanding of the church-planting process and the vital steps of preparation. You will also receive practical training for pastoral leadership. Throughout this year, you will grow your confidence in communication and small group leadership.


There are two core days of Academy teaching, which are Tuesday and Wednesday. The cost for the year is £1,600 per student. This fee includes your tuition, a residential trip in the UK, an international trip with your fellow students, and a Cave discount.
