How Do I Become A Missionary?

You are wholeheartedly set on following what you believe the Lord has for you regardless the cost.  Your expectation is high for what the Lord will do next.  Chances are you’re already doing missional activity, and now you’re considering how training could assist you to understand God’s heart for others.  

VI can be that spring board to the next step.  You may already work with the poor and struggle to see your part in God’s plan.  Or you might find yourself called to another people group and you’re questioning “is this really God’s plan for your life?”  “Seek the Kingdom first” you tell yourself, but you wonder what this means.  You desire to know more about the Kingdom of God- what it is, your part in it.  The next step for you is to train in the Scriptures- to soak it in and hear from others how it is God has worked in their ministry.  We will guide your journey of being trained to be sure that you are fully equipped for a life-long mission in doing God’s work for the Kingdom.
