Global Next Steps Retreats

Global Retreats

Global Retreats are three-day discipleship weekends for students who are committed to working cross-culturally long-term. At these retreats students will absorb teaching on a variety of topics, participate in strategic prayer sessions, engage in corporate worship, and receive personal mentoring from veteran cross-cultural workers and global organization personnel. All of this is designed to help each student come away from the weekend with practical next steps that are personalized for them as they continue to pursue what God has called them to for His glory.

Global Mentors

A further step for students moving towards overseas work is getting connected with a Global Mentor. These experienced overseas workers from our partner organizations disciple students in the process of getting to the field and living there successfully.
