Missio Center works with judicatories across North America providing mission development training, missio events and clergy conferences, church planting bootcamps, each of which can be focused to explore various topics in progressive, emerging and contextual mission and ‘Fresh Expressions’ of church (on site in your judicatory).

Missio Center hosts  mission development training course for clergy and lay leaders and a pioneer missioner/church and ministry planter training bootcamp course onsite in our base city of Portland, Oregon and alternately we will lead a group to participate in the international pioneers gathering in the UK (next in 2013).
