Amplifiers for our local mission leaders.
Uniting in Prayer
We believe that the foundation to all ministry is prayer. The first thing we do with new mission leaders is build a foundation of prayer. We are active prayer collaborators, bringing diverse groups together around the city and around specific mission leaders.
Contact Kate Griffin for more information.
LINC Bible Institute
LBI provides foundational Biblical training from experienced practitioners as well as all of the pre-requisite classes needed for seminary training. We currently utilize online classes from our sister LINC ministry in Houston.
Dr. Samuel Deressa is actively developing our own local LBI to be unveiled sometime this year (2018).
Contact Samuel for more information.
Twin Cities Metro School of Church Planting
This school is specifically designed to train leaders and their teams to reach unreached and under resourced communities. We have partnered with TUMI to bring time tested and specific teaching for raising up ministries in these contexts. Tumi is The Urban Ministry Institute. Their website is: http://www.tumi.org

LINC sponsors various ordination tracks, including the Cross-Cultural Ministry Center at Concordia Irvine, the Ethnic Immigrant Institute of Theology (EIIT), Center for Hispanic Studies (CHS), Specific Ministry in Place (SMP) and traditional M.Div. programs through Concordia Seminary. We walk with leaders through every step of the process.
