What is Filipus
A Monastic ... Since the fourth century, Christians have been committing to intentional community and to a lifestyle of prayer, study and service. This “monastic” tradition had a significant beginning in central Turkey (Anatolia), and such men and woman were a blessing to their neighborhoods, their cities and even their nations. We join in their legacy by also committing ourselves to community, to God, and to a way of life.
What We Do
We equip Turks and Turkish speaking believers for ministry in Turkey and in the nations. Our training is not simply an information download, but an intensive year-long program that fosters growth in three areas: knowledge, experience and character.
Participants accepted into the Filipus program are required to come to Ankara to be in community with other program participants and Filipus staff. Parts of the program will involve travel to other cities as well as to another country but the base is always Ankara.
