CORE is a 1 to 3-year program and is designed for those who have a desire to go to the nations (short or long-term) but need the hands-on tools to get there. Through this program, you will become an effective soul-winner, learn the behind the scenes work of missions and ministry, and take part in evangelism projects around the world with Global Ventures.
Whether you desire to be involved in missions long-term, see yourself in ministry here in the US, or you simply desire a foundation in evangelism, the CORE Program will help you gain the knowledge and practical skill sets to make it happen.
What if you were the answer to someone’s destiny?
The first year, the curriculum focuses intensively on evangelism. There are projects and assignments that help you grow in soul winning from one-on-one evangelism to crowds with thousands of people. You are also trained in every department to get an idea of how each area of the ministry operates.
As part of the CORE Program, you have the opportunity to stay longer than the actual overseas Global Ventures trip. You are immersed in the culture, building relationships with nationals and helping set up evangelism projects several weeks before the GV team arrives.
During your second year, you will focus on developing your leadership skills. You will have weekly round table discussions with John and Martine Smithwick and receive invaluable knowledge about leadership, ministry, family, missions and more! You will also learn how to conduct an outreach from start to finish.
After completing Year 2, you will be considered to co-lead or lead a team on a GV trip. You will also be eligible to participate in an initial set up trip with the International Coordination team. On this trip, you will meet with pastors and church members in-country to plan the upcoming evangelism project 3-6 months before the team arrives.
During your third year, you will be mentored one-on-one in the areas of ministry that you desire to be a part of long term. You will have specific roles and responsibilities in your respective department along with leadership roles that help develop Year 1 & 2 interns.
By the end of third year, you will be trained, have your financial support developed, and be ready to launch into what God has for you! Year 3 graduates of the CORE Program, are eligible to conduct their very own evangelistic festival on a GV missions trip!
