The Forge is basic training for revolutionary Christians. Our primary purpose is twofold; to help Forge participants develop a more intimate relationship with the Lord; and to build in them a desire to see the headship of Christ expressed in new ways in his church.

Their stories will move your heart and increase your passion to see the good news of Christ spread to every tribe, tongue and nation.
