Practical   |   Missional   |   Accessible

Porterbrook is a theological training course which equips ordinary men and women to do everyday gospel ministry.

Porterbrook was developed in the United Kingdom out of a desire to have high quality theological training available in local churches. There are now thirty learning sites around the world in the UK, Australia, South Africa, Italty and in the United States. New City is thrilled to bring Porterbrook Learning to Cincinnati.

Some of the distinctives of the Porterbrook program are that it is not knowledge simply for knowledge's sake. Every module is practical in nature, and every module pushes us to think about how we can join in God's mission. (See the videos below for more information)

How it works?

We don't want to take away from the things you are already doing, so we've tried to be creative in how we implement this. The modules will work like this:

  • Self-Study (approx 2 hrs/week)
  • Monthly Lab (Wednesday at 6:30pm) [offered on "off weeks" for our community groups]
  • Prayer partner

*Porterbrook is in trimesters. Signing up for one trimester doesn't obligate you to any future classes with Porterbrook. But if you do sign up, you must take all 3 modules.


How much?

$30/person or $45/couple. Pay by check at orientation.


When is it?

  • Orientation is on a Sunday morning before the course begins [we typically meet @ Parker school right after our morning worship gathering]
  • Labs will meet at 6:30pm on the last Wednesday of each month.

What are we learning?

Winter 2014 TBD

Future trimesters will include (subject to change): Winter 2014: Engaging With Context, Pastor Care Part I, Bible Teaching in Missional Perspective. Spring 2014: Engaging with the Urban Poor, Pastroral Care Part II, Bible Truth in Missional Perspective.
