Academy - The Message



Explore and grow your heart for the least, last and lost.

On Message Academy, you will be equipped, transformed and released with boldness to share the good news of Jesus in every opportunity. Come and discover all that God has in store for you!

Throughout the year you will press in to, understand, proclaim and demonstrate the gospel to young people, those in prisons and to communities across the UK. And that’s not all! You will receive high quality teaching from excellent tutors from The Message Trust and partner organisations to train and equip you for mission. Using what you learn, you will play a key part in planning the largest mission event in a generation – Festival Manchester 2022!

So What Is Message Academy?

Come and press into your calling to witness and evangelise. Through Message Academy, you will explore and grow in your giftings, catch God’s heart for the lost and marginalised, and develop your boldness in taking the good news of Jesus wherever you go – whether that’s on a platform in front of a large crowd or sharing with a neighbour.

‘Academy equipped me to share the gospel in every context and gave me amazing opportunities to see young people changed by the love of Jesus when saying yes to him’

Henry, Class of 2021

‘I was given the opportunity to discover my true purpose, self worth and identity in Christ. I learned to trust and honour God in every situation and I can confidently say that Message Academy changed my life and is one of the best decisions I ever made.’

Megan, Class of 2021

‘Academy has pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me how to share my faith. I’ve been able to use my giftings while out on mission. I now feel fully equipped to share God’s word.’

– Tamara, Class of 2019

Academy is a 10 month training programme for young adults 17-25 to experience how and where The Message Trust do evangelism. Academy will birth and shape the evangelistic heart of each student and give you the opportunity to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel in powerful and impactful ways.

So are you ready to press into the plans God has for you, and to become all that you are called to be?
