Living as a community of believers
So much of Kingdom Living is only possible in small community, which few of us have experienced, and because life on the field typically involves much closer community than we understand, TAG encourages interns to share a room with at least one other intern in close proximity (walking distance) to other interns and to a group of unreached people.
Because Jesus-Community Planting Movements (J-CPMs) grow through New Testament house church structures, which few of us have experienced, all interns are also required to take a sabbatical from their mother church for 5 months and form their own house church for the purpose of learning to “be a community of Jesus followers.”

Training Apprentices to Go (TAG) is not a school. No one will take an exam or receive a grade… instead interns will learn by doing! In TAG, a group of 10 to 20 interns will study together; committing 12-14 hours per week after work or school. You will immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of the Dearborn neighborhood where you will live. You will learn to build bridges with others, learn how to share Jesus stories and even be equipped on how to start a house church. Our goal is to help equip you with the skills necessary to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unreached people groups in a region of the world where the church does not yet exist.
What a TAG intern can expect?
- 10 months of practical training as an apprentice.
- 43 weeks of guided study.
- 40 nights with a mentor.
- 5 months in a house church.
- 3 weekend retreats.

“TAG has been one of the best things in my life. Our hands-on experiences in outreach among the international community have been an excellent way to apply the things we learn.”
~ A TAG Graduate
“TAG has been one of the best things in my life. Our hands-on experiences in outreach among the international community have been an excellent way to apply the things we learn. Above all, I was stretched and grown by God. Living near awesome people of God and having true accountability and biblical fellowship is something I could not have gotten elsewhere. I confidently say that I am a different person because of my experience, and looking back, know that I really needed this time to prepare for working overseas. I would totally, absolutely, no holds barred, recommend this to anyone who wants to work overseas. TAG made Jesus precious to me.”
