The GO Process

Step 1: Speak with a pastor or spiritual mentor

In the process of discovery of God's plan for you to serve, it is important to seek out the wise counsel and advice of your pastor or a trusted mentor, in conjunction with your own emphasis on prayer. This can also serve to establish the foundation of prayer, support and spiritual guidance that you will need when you are on the field. 

Step 2: Check out opportunities and qualifications

A wide variety of ministry opportunities are searchable right here online.  Take some time to browse these needs and learn about various ministry locations. An even better way for you to envision your fit is to take a trip. See it and feel it first-hand for a few days, a week, or more.

Step 3: Fill out a preliminary questionnaire

In this step we get to know each other a little bit. We learn some basic things about your background, your skills and your interests, and a door of dialog opens that allows us to explore ideas together.  This step is not a formal application, so it does not obligate us to each other. It just gets things started.

>> Get Connected

Step 4: Complete an online application

After discussion with the Mobilization team and likely one or more field leaders to get a sense of at least a general ministry fit and location, you will complete an application covering more details, including elements such as educational and ministry history, biographical essay, phone interviews, and a statement of vision. You will receive a special link to the online application when you arrive at this step in the process.

Step 5: Get Trained

Upon acceptance of your application, you will be invited to attend Avant Start, a one-week program of training and orientation culminating in appointment to membership. The week is focused on developing a thorough understanding of the organizational culture, values and vision of Avant, and to affirm your ministry fit with the mission. The week is designed to culminate in your appointment as a member of Avant Ministries.

Before you depart for your assigned field, and after raising the majority of your financial support, you will return for another week of more in-depth training called Avant Go. Most appointees leave Avant Go with a much clearer field launch plan, including your target date for field departure.

Step 6: GO!

The prayer and preparation will pay off.  It is time to go! You will not go alone!  You will have the backing of faithful financial and prayer partners, and will become part of a supportive ministry team when you arrive.
