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 its 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.
Yes! If you're interested in both G42 and CGA, it is possible to get the best of both worlds!
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
Participants need to be at least 20 years old and less than 35. We anticipate an average age of 25 years old.
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 open only 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.

Staff members, with supervisor approval, may audit classes as a benefit of being part of the Adventures staff. If they would like to enroll in the CGA as a full -time apprentice, they can resign from their position upon acceptance into the CGA, in which case, they would be eligible for scholarships.
While Adventures staff is eligible for certain benefits, including health insurance, apprentices in the CGA do not qualify. *Please Note* By January 1, 2014, you will be required by law to have health insurance or pay an annual fee.
A monthly stipend of at least $200 (exact amount will vary according to location) will be given to apprentices for food and personal expenses.
Apprentices need to have half the cost of one semester in their accounts prior to arrival and the full amount for the semester by mid-term.
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 eight-month scholarship.
January and September each year.
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.
