The goal of FLAME 2.0 is to cultivate strong pastoral leaders who are spiritually well-formed, equipped to empower others to make disciples, and committed to reaching their communities for Jesus Christ. With an emphasis on the holistic nature of evangelism and its interconnected relationship with other ministries of the church, this cohort-based learning experience includes cross-denominational engagement, coaching, missional collaboration, and spiritual exploration. The design of the program and its stress on the importance of relationship deepens the spiritual stamina and insight necessary for continued productive and meaningful ministry and provides a means to address the burnout, loneliness, and frustration experienced by many clergy.

New FLAME 2.0 cohorts will experience a 10-month, in-depth program of formalized coaching, ongoing support in a small group context, the opportunity for collaborative work, and hands-on experiential learning in international and US contexts.
