Masters Commission Amsterdam (MCA) is a place where people, who spend most of their lives living in the city, can come and work on their soul. MCA has different programs that focusses on discipleship, spiritual formation, biblical education and missions in an urban context.

Our goal is to equip students with tools and develop them into missional leaders who will make a lasting impact whether in full-time ministry or in the marketplace. We are committed to character development and to the call for mission in the city.

We are based in Amsterdam, one of the most exciting places in Europe to live in. It is a city that historically embraces the values of liberty, and tolerance, and has become a free haven for diversity and new ideas. Amsterdam is also where you will find the most innovative projects for urban missions.

MCA offers a learning community where you will be stretched beyond your comfort zone. If you really want to be challenged and learn how to live out a faith, that will impact the culture around you, then stick around, MCA may be a place for you in the next season of your life.

Master’s Commission Amsterdam offers different classes all year long. We understand that not everyone can invest the same amount of time. That is why we offer different levels of intensity. The content of the classes are basically the same, the only difference is you can follow the classes in your own tempo.
