19 Dec Missional U
What is Missional U?
Missional U is a thoughtful, challenging, multi-month adventure into the heart of God that includes guided, cross-cultural missions experiences abroad and in our city.
Missional U is more than a trip overseas—it’s a discipleship path to a deeper understanding of yourself, your gifting, and your part in God’s mission to redeem the world.
You will walk side-by-side with the Missional Living team to learn about yourself and work to prepare to serve on one of our short-term missions teams. When we say “learn,” we mean going beyond reading and theory into the practical application of how to walk as a witness for Jesus in your everyday world.
How does Missional U work?
Missional U is designed to be an intense, relational, and personal discipleship experience that can take you to new depths in your walk with God and shape your understanding of God’s mission and your part in it.
Going deep takes time, so Missional U is a significant commitment. Missional U participants work together through required modules on topics like finding your personal identity, cultivating a life of authenticity and moral purity, personal evangelism, healthy spiritual living, and developing cross-cultural relationships. Meanwhile, you will be working with your fellow team members to prepare for your short-term missions experience and walk in the shoes of a missionary as you raise support for your ministry costs and prepare to share the Gospel in a cross-cultural setting. After your missions experience, you will get coaching and support as you apply what you have learned to your everyday life.
In short, you will read, study, learn, wrestle, and celebrate as God works in you and through you and your team.
