Advanced Ministerial Training
Fuller Formation Groups
Fuller Formation Groups provide an opportunity for church, mission, and
marketplace leaders to deepen their spiritual and leadership formation
in community with others. Each group consists of 10 to 12 men and women
and features quarterly retreats, monthly meetings, and weekly content
engagement—taking place over a period of 13 to 14 months. Different
types of groups are offered to meet differing needs, but all will guide
their members to more fruitfully engage God’s kingdom work in the world. Click here for more info!
