The mission of FORWORD started in a local church on Vancouver Island, in Canada. The initial Living Prophets’ Society, a school of biblical communication for men and women of Cobble Hill Christian Church, morphed into the Biblical Preaching Society, which has now been renamed FORWORD.
The first global project of the mission expanded its program to Poland under the auspices of the Foundation IDEO, through the program of Akademia Homiletyczna (Academy of Homiletics).
After a decade the program has morphed into a two-year, tri-annual format. We make our home in Zakościele, a Proem Foundation’s camp and conference centre just outside of Warsaw. The program is taught by our interdenominational team consisting of eight native speaking pastors and educators.
In 2018 we are expanding our program to Czech Republic and Slovakia through the national teams of educators joining us during our January session with a view toward commencing programs of FORWORD in the neighbouring countries.
