Becoming a member

The process of joining The Order of Mission (TOM) follows a similar path to monastic Orders of the past. We call this process Exploration.


Exploration is simply the journey of investigating more deeply what TOM is about and whether God is calling you to be a part of this covenant community. 

The journey goes from Explorer, to Temporary Member to Permanent Member and takes a minimum of 4 years. 

Begin the Exploration process

As you look to engage with the process of Exploration we would encourage you to read the information on this website thoroughly so you get a clear picture of what this family is about. 

At the outset we expect people to explore and join within an existing relationship with Order members.  Explorers are asked to prayerfully seek out a Permanent Member of the Order to accompany them on the process of discerning a call to the community. If you know no Permanent Members feel free to contact us.

Once you have identified your Accompanying Member you can register as an Explorer by filling in the Explorer Registration Form.

After receiving your completed form, a TOM administrator will be in touch to explain how exploration works in your region.  Following a period of discernment Explorers may then be invited to make their commitment to the community.

If you are not yet ready to start the process of Exploration but would like more information regarding TOM please contact us
