EMM’s Advance program is an opportunity for young adults to connect with other young adults in a community setting while learning and growing in discipleship, to have meaningful relationships while deepening their relationship with God, and engaging to make a difference in a local community. 

Advance will begin in September with a week of discipleship training in a community “cohort” setting with other young adults. Each individual will be connected to a ministry or non-profit located domestically that fits with their personal interests and gifts in which they will serve in an intern-like capacity to engage and learn practical, hands-on experience. Each month through May 2022, we will gather the cohort together for a day of discipleship training and community building as we discuss how you’re growing and putting things into practice in your internships. 

The cost of Advance is $950 for the training and cohort portions. The first five applicants get $50 off. Internship costs vary by location. Concerned about fundraising being a problem? We have scholarships available for a limited number of eligible applicants — so contact us and we'll help you navigate those details.
