What is TIM? The Training in Mission Programme promotes leadership and service to the church and God’s mission, by providing opportunity for a group of young adults to participate in seven (7) months of mission learning in theory and in practice through classes, exposure visits, projects and hands-on work in various contexts.

The Training in Mission aims to provide training for life. It is intended to be a stage in Christian formation which helps each participant in a life–long involvement with the mission of the church. It also aims to offer training which provides wider vision; deepened commitment; and a strengthened sense of fellowship and partnership with other fellow Christians around the world, particularly through CWM member-churches.
