Micah Groups

Micah Groups are the core
of The Ogilvie Institute’s ministry

The vision of Micah Groups is to form empowered, wise preachers who seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God leading others to join God’s mission in the world.

What are Micah Groups?

Micah Groups are preacher formation groups designed for roughly 12 preachers (plus two Co-Facilitators) who meet together 12 times (either monthly or bi-monthly) to grow together as wise empowered preachers who live and lead at the convergence of worship, preaching, and justice.  

 

Micah Groups are designed to reflect diversity (cultural, ethnic, gender, denominational, socio-economic, etc.) as much as is possible for the area in which a given group meets.  We believe preacher-formation happens best in stimulating, reflective, diverse community.

 

Micah Group meetings include conversations shaped by our innovative curriculum (written, produced, or aggregated for our purposes) as well as spiritual disciplines of fellowship, prayer, and worship.

 

In addition to the bi-monthly meetings Micah Group Members are also given a host of resources through the Micah Groups Portal which include feature articles, weekly reflections, videos, and access to live webinars with theologians and preachers who offer insight and inspiration.

 

Micah Groups are designed to be affordable for anyone who wants to participate.  Click here to visit our payment page for Micah Groups Dues.  Scholarships are also available upon request.

 

Interested in joining?  Contact our Micah Groups Coordinator, Jennifer Ackerman, or our East Coast Micah Groups Mobilizer, Darryl Ford.
