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, you will focus on the harvest-intensive curriculum. You will have training as well as projects and assignments to help you grow your knowledge of evangelism.
After completing Year 1, you will be considered to be a part of one of the Global Ventures departments (Creative, Missions Trip, International Coordination) that best fits your gifts and talents to learn hands-on in that area.
During your second year, you will focus on developing your leadership skills. You will have weekly classes with John and Martine Smithwick and receive invaluable knowledge about leadership, ministry, family, missions, and more! You will also learn how to conduct your own stateside outreach from start to finish.
After completing Year 2 of the program, you will have leadership responsibilities and be considered to co-lead a team on a GV trip. You will also be eligible to participate on a pre-trip with the International Coordination team. On this trip, you will meet with school directors, pastors, and church members in-country to plan for the upcoming Global Ventures Team Trip 3-4 weeks 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. This year is customizable based on what area of ministry you feel called to. You will continue to grow your leadership and communication skills by having specific roles and responsibilities in your respective department and will also be in leadership roles to help develop Year 1 & 2 interns.
Graduates of all 3 years of the CORE Program are eligible to conduct their very own evangelistic festival on a GV mission trip!
