Summary: The Cru Digital Strategies team has been building digital training programs to equip the body of Christ for digital missions. Through their programs, they are training cohorts of digital missionaries to fill missional gaps helping the gospel to spread further and faster.

With the rise of online learning platforms and cohort programs like Udemy and Coursera, people are looking into digital spaces for training and equipping. The Cru Digital Strategies team from Cru Philippines built the Digital Missions Launchpad (discipleship.space/digitalmissionslaunchpad) as a 3-week course to equip the body of Christ for digital missions.
The program activates digital missionaries to fill missional gaps. We’ve identified these gaps as communities and audiences which lack enough multiplying disciples to effectively reach their community with the gospel. Course participants complete lessons asynchronously on an online platform. Weekly group discussions are provided for interaction and to consolidate the week’s lessons.
Evangelical Missions Quarterly (EMQ) is available to Missio Nexus members as a member-only benefit or as a digital subscription.
