Yes. The length of stay can be tailor-made to suit the individual trainee. There are advantages in trainees signing up for the whole year, but three month modules are possible.
Do I have to live in a community house?
No, although this is beneficial in terms of building relationships and receiving consistent training. You can live in your own accommodation, preferably near to a community house.

We ask that each trainee provides a weekly contribution of £85 (£95 in London). This covers full board & lodging and other travel expenses if you’re living in fully residential community - either by means of local employment or state benefits.
What if I have a disability?
We will do our best to arrange activities that suit the individual. Two key notes of the training year are flexibility and inclusiveness. We don’t want to rule anyone out who has a heart to serve God.

Will I be expected to join the esus army at the end of the course?
There are no strings attached and although we do expect that some will want to join us and become church members, we realise that others will go on to commit themselves elsewhere in the body of Christ. We just want to pass on what God has given us.

“I was pleased with the weekly mentoring. I was able to ask questions and go deeper as I learned to receive as well as give. I grew in love because every day I was challenged to go beyond myself.”
David “it was only when i began to open up every part of my life to other christians that esus was able seriously to get to grips with me. i grew up spiritually a huge amount during the training year and gained a number of very valuable friends and deeper relationships. training year200mm.indd 2
in personal devotions and spiritual gifts
the modern esus army training year involves practical discipling within a community lifestyle to equip you to be fruitful in your christian walk and witness. it offers a unique opportunity for you to stay in a esus fellowship community house for up to a year, being coached to live out a full-on christian faith. We are looking to find and release future leaders for building the church of Jesus. Part of the training will involve some study and devotion, but the bulk of it is a ‘hands on’ programme of activity designed to stretch you, preparing you for greater responsibility in church life. This includes a weekly mentoring time in which you will follow a schedule of spiritual and practical challenges.
