Young Adult Missional Movement

Goal of Program

The Young Adult Missional Movement offers summer and year-long programs for 18-30 year olds of mutual mission. It is designed to be intentionally cross-cultural; purposeful in transformation and renewing for individuals and organizations as well. The purpose of our work is to expand the capacity of local churches, ministries and social service agencies, to provide meaningful experiences for young adults to discern their vocational and spiritual call, and to engage in our communities by building a living gospel. Our year-long micro-missional program is for young adults to experience the love of God through building cooperative living, meaningful work, and community engagement. Our summer mission intern program provides hands-on opportunities for young adults to make a difference in the world by serving out of the depth of their Christian faith, particularly with children and youth in under-served communities.
