What does the training look like?

Deepen your relationship with Jesus and develop cross-cultural ministry skills during a 12week residential training in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This training will include teaching, prayer, and outreach with other young adults who are passionate for Jesus. Participants of both Advance Global and Advance Local will live at Immerse International and join in their multicultural community. Practical experience working with EMM’s Neighbors Community Center will provide participants with hands-on learning opportunities in cross-culture ministry and service.

What does the outreach look like?

December through May will be spent with other team members serving in a ministry location with the leadership of long term EMM workers. Outreach opportunities may involve children’s ministry, tutoring English language learners, working with immigrants and refugees, one-on-one discipleship, engaging with unreached people groups who are hearing the Gospel for the first time, and/or small group ministry with new believers. Specific outreach(es) will be arranged based on each individual’s interests, gifting, and availability.

How much does it cost?

The cost for Advance Global is a flat rate of $9,500. This includes international transportation, training fees, and food and lodging during all Advance training and outreach times. Scholarships are also available for those who require financial assistance to participate in the program. 

Can I do Advance Global part-time?

No. Advance Global is a full time commitment. It’s a perfect fit for those who are planning a “Gap year” or for those who feel called to long term missions and want to take a first step in exploring that calling.
