The Center for Global Action (CGA) at Adventures in Missions is the home for the Apprentice Program. The Apprentice Program is a launching pad dedicated to holistic development through community, discipleship and apprenticeship.
We exist to activate a generation in their Kingdom role.
When Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations," he commissioned us as global activists. We want to equip you to follow that call. The CGA includes a growing number of tracks, including: Apprentice Program (1&2), Emerging Leadership Program (1&2), Kingdom Journeys, Worship, and Storytelling.
The CGA/Apprentice Program facilitates growth for graduating Racers through two basic ways:
Core components of the CGA/Apprentice Program include:
If you’re interested in both G42 and CGA, it is possible to get the best of both worlds! Just ask us about our practicum options.
Participants need to be at least 20 years old and less than 35. We anticipate an average age of 25 years old.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
Initially, any and all recent Adventures alumni are welcome to apply. The acceptance process for admission to the CGA will be driven by a good reference and evaluation from past leaders, coaches, and team members.
The CGA curriculum is currently designed around principles and experiences encountered during Kingdom journeys like the World Race. Currently the CGA program is only open to Passport and World Race alumni.
Apprentices need to commit to personal development through community, discipleship and apprenticeship.
The CGA/Apprentice Program is designed to facilitate development (or growth) spiritually, relationally, professionally and emotionally. We want to produce mature contributors in the Kingdom. It is important that apprentices are not only willing to grow, but are eager for it.
Yes, upon acceptance we will locate and assign housing for participants. Check out where some apprentices are living here.
scholarship money will be awarded to people who have the greatest need.
Scholarship money is limited and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.
Staff members can audit classes as a benefit of being part of the Adventures staff. They just need to work it out with their supervisor. If they would like to enroll in the CGA as a full -time participant, they can resign their position upon acceptance into the center, in which case they would be eligible for scholarships.
While Adventures staff is eligible for certain benefits including health insurance, participants in the CGA do not qualify.
The costs for participation in the CGA are $600 per month. That amount includes housing, a $200 cash stipend paid to the participant, and program costs. There may be additional costs for books, travel, and extra-curricular activities.
Each apprentice needs to have their first two months of support in their account prior to arriving. For example, if you are a six-month student with a 25% scholarship, your monthly fee is $450. You will need to maintain a $900 balance in your account.
Yes, as charter staff, it is possible for you to audit classes for the first year (assuming space availability in the class and coordination with your supervisor).
The scholarships are limited and will be based on a first come, first served basis. They will be based on financial need, merit, and evaluations.
January and September each year.
While CGA has many different events and opportunities each day, apprentices have a set commitment Monday – Friday, from 9:00 AM – 5:00 Pm, half of the CGA day is spent in sessions lead by CGA facilitators, the other half is spent serving in an Adventures department in apprenticeship positions.
By using real world settings and challenges, we can enhance your learning experience and involve you in the bigger picture of what God is doing around the world. Through Adventures, God is raising up a generation of radicals to shine the light of Christ in the world's darkest places. We believe God wants young leaders to see what he's doing and how they can join him.
Adventures has 17 different programs and departments that require a number of skill sets: management, leadership, training, media, marketing, finance, phone ministry, outdoor ministry, research, innovations, and fund development.
These areas are led by a group of world-class leaders who will help you find the perfect fit for your apprenticeship and internship, if that applies.
Yes, apprentices can extend their time and course commitment; however, scholarships are not retroactive in this regard. For example, if a person opts into four months and then changes to eight months, they are not eligible for an 8-month scholarship.
God continues to expand the ministry of Adventures. If this is where you are called and there is a position available that is well suited for you, we would love to have you join our staff.
Everyone who successfully completes a course will receive a Certificate of Completion.
