Kingsway Church


Protege is a ten-month apprenticeship program designed to identify leaders who sense a call to ministry and want an opportunity to explore what that means. Throughout their time in Protege, leaders will cultivate the character needed to sustain their calling, be challenged to establish healthy eating and exercise habits, develop practical ministry skills through serving, and discover the unique way that God has designed them to make a difference in their community, church and world.

With UPRIGHT HEART he shepherded them
& guided them with SKILLFUL HANDS.
Psalm 78.72 ESV

Protege requires commitment

The commitment of Protege will consist of 20-30 hours per week from September through June. During this time, Proteges will grow in their relationship with God as they devote time to prayer, personal, and group devotions. Also, while immersed in local church and in biblical community, Proteges will learn the skills necessary to lead themselves and others well.
