Center for Theological and Ministerial Formation Germany


A one-year program over twelve weekends

The Observation

Towards the middle of the last decade, we are witnessing the rise of church initiatives by young people; Germans with migration backgrounds.

These individuals, with the mandate to communicate the Gospel meaningfully, find themselves in the middle of two ecclesiastic worlds and traditions: between the migrant churches in which they grew up (often oriented towards the practices of the homeland of the parents), charismatic in nature with a strong focus on the manifestations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit but offers little or no room for sound theologically reflected teachings, and German congregations with some particular forms of intellectually-oriented theologies that leave little or no room for the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit.

The Solution Approach

To bridge these two ends, CTMF-G offers theological education and spiritual formation to ministers and pastors for effective ministration and mission in a diversified and pluralized society. The goal of CTMF-G is to equip ministers for multi-cultural ministries.
