Ministry Quest is a one-year, two-stage program for high school students ages 16-18 who are curious about exploring God’s call and their potential for ministry leadership. Ministry Quest’s values of partnering with the local church, creating community, developing mentoring relationships and utilizing ministry experiences make the program unique and innovative.
The first stage opens with a kick-off intensive retreat in which you will consider what it means to be “called.” This stage also includes 13 mentoring sessions with a leader from your home church as well as observing your pastor in two distinct ministry settings.
The second stage focuses on “vocation” and understanding more about yourself, leadership and ministry. This stage includes 13 more mentoring sessions, a significant mission experience and concludes with a closing intensive retreat in which you are sent out for leadership and ministry. Costs: Currently tuition is set for $150 per stage (2 stages) for students and $350/stage per student, paid by the home church.
Two sets of MQ participants take part in the same annual retreat – those beginning the program and those concluding it. So, the “intensive” both opens and closes the program for MQ participants and the interaction between the two groups has amazing potential for growth.
