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 bi-monthly over the span of two years. Their initial gathering and their final gathering are each a full-day retreat.
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. We ask that members and/or their organziation contribute financially at the following levels: $500 (those in full-time ministry at a multi-staff organization), $400 (full-time ministry, solo leadership), or $300 (part-time ministry). Scholarships are also available upon request.
