Avance is an immersion program for the next generation. We are passionate about the formation of reflective, missional practitioners immersed in culture and language who serve under local leadership in ministry.
Jesus walked with his disciples, live immersed within the culture.
Christ came to give life. Share the Gospel of Christ’s transformation in proclamation and action alongside the local church.
God is dynamic. Join local ministries in seeking the Spirit’s innovation to engage society.
Avance’s 4 Pillars:
1. SPIRITUAL FORMATION
Participants will develop intimacy with God through cultivating their walk with Jesus as evidenced in Christ-likeness and personal spiritual disciplines.
2. PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
In Avance, the participant will learn how to identify and cultivate their specific gifts and how to apply these to the kingdom of God, as they grow in maturity and learn skills that prepare them for their future.
3. LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Avance participants will engage with leadership themes, grow in their leadership abilities, and take initiative to create positive change in their spheres of influence.
4. CROSS CULTURAL MINISTRY SKILLS
Participants will develop a respect and understanding for the host culture, language, and context through formal training and everyday immersion. In result, they will spread the Kingdom of God in culturally appropriate ways as they emulate Christ’s incarnational ministry.
