METRO: glorifies the one true God who has revealed himself in His son Jesus Christ by training others to make him known, who then train others to do the same
The METRO Committee oversees the Ministry Equipping Training Recruiting Organisation (METRO), which provides a pathway for people considering training at theological college to take steps in that direction.
The committee comprises three ministers, three elders and a convener with its main function to oversee the development of the METRO program including curriculum developing and funding allocations to training churches.
METRO believes that an evangelistic, equipping model of ministry is best learnt through the apprenticeship of one-to-one training (2 Timothy 2:2).
In the context of one-to-one training, the whole person is trained in three strands: (i) personal godliness; (ii) theological reflection (iii) ministry skills.
METRO benefits not only the trainee, but strengthens the training culture for:
the trainer, through an intensive training experience.
the local church, as the trainee becomes a focal point for developing a training culture.
the Presbytery, as neighbouring churches are spurred on to be involved in Metro and its benefits.
the denomination, through the calibre and experience of ministry candidates.
