Top 3 Reasons You Need Training

Whether you are preparing for a Short-Term Missions Experience or want to know more about living on mission in your daily life, training is essential.

  • Good intentions don't always yield healthy results. Training will guide you in helping others without bringing harm to them or yourselves in the process.

  • In order to see long-term change, it is essential to be trained to work in partnership with others. Dialogue creates a symbiotic relationship where everyone benefits.

  • Missions training significantly increases the possibility of long-term, lasting change in the life of a student or participant in God's mission.

Our Training Focus

What will you learn through The Missions Academy?

  • IDENTITY

    Who are you? Explore your identity: who you are in Christ, what gifts and talents God has given you and how to use those to live out the mission of God every day and everywhere.

  • CULTURE

    Where do you belong? The culture around you has influence in your everyday life and plays a role in where you fit. Deepen your understanding of culture and how to more effectively engage with those from different perspectives and evaluate your place within the world.

  • MISSION

    What is your purpose? How should you live? When you understand yourself as a "sent one" by God, you realize that each day you have an opportunity to live for him. Uncover God's mission and how you can be a part of it.

  • POVERTY

    How should you respond? Poverty stems from brokenness in relationship and there are forms of poverty all around us. Identity your own brokenness and learn how to effectively help those in need without causing harm in the process.

  • LEADERSHIP

    How do I lead well? Whether you are leading a team of students or you want to learn how to lead on mission, equip yourself with tools and mindsets that will make you an effective and compassionate leader that others will be inspired to follow.
