At Messy Church USA we offer a selection of raining possibilities to equip Messy Churches to start, sustain and connect.
Get Started Training
The Get Started in Messy Church is our foundational training event that is highly recommended for any church planning to start a Messy Church. The training is led by Messy Church USA certified training teams.
Bringing a team to the six-hour in-person training is advised to most fully experience how a Messy Church flows. However, we also offer a three-part online Get Started for those churches not able to attend an in-person training.
The Get Started training is both theoretical and practical. Each team will learn vital tools to strongly begin their local Messy Church. They will discover how the five foundational values and four components are used as building blocks to contextualize their Messy Church. They will participate in a ‘Mini-Messy Church’ that pulls both the theoretical and practical together. In addition, they will have the opportunity to dialogue with their team about specific challenges and strengths facing their distinctive context.
Each team will receive a complete Messy Church Session, examples of forms they will need as they begin, and a pdf copy of the Get Messy! magazine that includes four complete Messy Church sessions.
A minimum of 6 churches is needed to schedule an in-person training event. If you would like to host a Get Started training at your location check out host church responsibilities.
The monthly Messy Webinars are designed to guide your Messy Church to start, sustain and connect. The Messy Webinars include both a Learn! and Engage! session.
- Learn! Watch a 30-minute video of content that is released at the first of the month. The video will be available throughout the entire month for your team to watch at your convenience.
- Engage! A 45-minute live online session on the third Thursday of the month to connect, share ideas, and ask questions with trainers and other Messy Church Leaders. Those who attend the Engage session will receive a handout of the topic content.
Each webinar is $ 45.00 for the church team and includes both the Learn! and Engage! session.
Messy Pathways is designed for Messy Church USA to work with Judicatory/ Diocesan leaders to nurture the growth of Messy Church in their networks.
