This training is intended for management teams of 2-6 people. ICP offers a two-year training for pioneers and their teams that consists of the following components:

1. A preparatory day

2. Four training weekends

Four training weekends from Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon at a location in the middle of the country around the themes a) mission, b) discipleship, c) leadership and d) multiplication. Each weekend consists of inspiring stories, prayer and testimonies and a lot of team time in which you can make concrete plans.

"Team training has become an indispensable part of our equipment in recent years. We have learned many great lessons. The subjects fitted exactly into the issues we were working on as a leadership team."

“We follow the ICP team training with our people from the Intercultural missionary work of Stichting Gave. The weekends are well taken care of. There is time for teaching, for praise & worship as well as plenty of opportunity to spend time together as a team. A number of key words that describe these weekends are: topical, educational, inspiring, enriching and intercultural.”
