Step 2: Application
Once you and your missions coach have agreed this is a good fit for you, your coach will walk you through the entire process of applying to serve as a Global Apprentice. The application process typically takes about 1 month.
Step 3: Pre-Field Preparation
When your application is cleared and you’re endorsed to serve as a Global Apprentice, you’ll begin support raising and pre-field training. A mission mentor will provide one-on-one support to guide you through the pre-field process, helping equip you for the journey ahead. This all takes about 3 months or so.
Step 4: Pre-Departure Week
The week of your departure, you’ll come to Colorado where you’ll meet the Global Apprentice staff, see the WorldVenture office, and spend time preparing for the season ahead!
Step 5: Departure to the Field
Once you have completed pre-field training and finished raising support, you’ll be on your way!
