Missionary Gospel Academy

School of Outreach-Evangelism Training

“We Proclaim Christ Crucified!”
Mark 16:15 -- 1 Peter 3:15

A general variety of topics will be covered but interns will be encouraged and mentored to study deeper into areas of personal ministry interest. Though this course is designed for M.G.C., members of other congregations are more than welcome to apply as well.

MAIN GOAL

Missionary academy interns will be challenged to consider a full-time calling to one of the ministries covered throughout the course or other outreach ministries, such as homeless outreach, sexual abuse ministry (i.e. LGBTQ), sex trafficking outreach, senior care ministry, foster care system outreach, prison ministry, New Age outreach, etc. within their local congregation. Furthermore, we hope to challenge interns to seize the various daily opportunities they encounter in their personal lives to share the Gospel.
