CGCS Mentorship

Have you ever wondered…

  • How does your ministry deepen your walk with the Lord?
  • What spiritual habits does a missions agency expect you to have?
  • What can you practically expect in international or domestic missions?
  • How are evangelism, missions and spiritual disciplines connected to the Great Commission?
  • How do you daily wear the full armor of God on the mission field?

You’ll address, discuss and practically engage these questions and more in the Mentorship Program at The Center for Great Commission Studies. Alongside Dr. Hildreth, each mentorship gathering will include a special guest who specializes in the topic that will be discussed. Students will be given the opportunity to interact with the guest informally through dinner, reading, discussion and Q&A.

The Mentorship Program is designed to equip a small number of students interested in thinking critically about evangelism, missions and spiritual disciplines in light of the Great Commission. We will examine how critical issues are intertwined through a wide variety of cultures both domestically and internationally.

The end goal is to create a culture of students who are spiritually prepared to bring the gospel to the nations. Our discipleship under Jesus Christ should lead us to value both the physical sending and spiritual equipping of missionaries.

Expectations

  • Gathering: Students will commit to meet once a month for 3 hours with the Director of The Center for Great Commissions Studies, Dr. Scott Hildreth. Each gathering will include an informal dinner, followed by thought-provoking conversation on an assigned topic.
  • Content: Students will commit to read assigned material provided by Dr. Hildreth. The material is designed to be light, but challenging enough to require intentional time to digest and discuss the content.
  • Opportunities: Students will be given opportunities to sharpen their skills and gifts through CGCS blog publishing as well as co-leading trips alongside professors. Also, students will be given the unique opportunity to interact with the leaders of our day in a way unlike anywhere else.
