2015 Global Outreach Teams



The Office of Global Outreach desires to provide each student with an opportunity to participate in and learn from the work of God in an overseas cross-cultural setting. Ministry opportunities are selected based on the following critical factors: partnership with a local church, evangelistic opportunities, vocational participation, length of service, and partnership with TMC alumni. Teams are formed during the fall semester, receive training during the spring semester, and serve overseas during the summer. All teams that minister through the Office of Global Outreach are led by students who are members of the Servant Leadership Staff.

The Preparation for Global Outreach class trains students in theological, philosophical, and practical aspects of short term mission: theology of missions, cultural research methods, logistical details, team-building, and health and safety, among others.
