SUMMER TRAINING PROGRAM

In partnership with Campus Ministry Today

Global Project 2020 is a virtual summer training program designed to deepen your understanding of evangelism, disciple making, and missions. As a participant, you will join a small group of other students known as your Discipleship Group, or D-Group. These groups meet weekly for Bible study, prayer, and equipping. In addition to weekly SIM-specific gatherings, you’ll also join participants from all over the world each week for inspiration and vision-casting during our online Global Gathering.

The registration cost for this virtual training program is $50.

WEEKLY STRUCTURE

Global Gathering (2 hours per week)
Join students around the globe each Tuesday to hear from incredible spiritual leaders and break up into discussion groups afterwards to discuss and pray with students from other campuses around the nation/world. We will offer multiple live sessions each Tuesday to allow different time zones to have discussion groups.

 

SIM Gathering (1.5 hours per week on Thursday nights)
Gather with others who are exploring missions with SIM. Learn our heartbeat, core values, and approach to making disciples of Jesus in communities where He is least known. You’ll gain a better understanding of how SIM lives out its purpose and mission as 4,000+ workers from 65 different nationalities, serving in over 70 countries worldwide.

 

Discipleship Groups (2 hours per week)
Dive deep each week with your D-Group for Bible study, book discussion of The Fuel and the Flame (updated student edition to be released soon), scripture memory review, accountability and prayer. D-Groups will be groups of 4 to 6, and may meet in person once social distancing guidelines are loosened.

  • Mobilization: Recruiting 4+ friends to go through an Xplore study learning about God’s heart for all nations
  • Purity Group: Recruiting 4+ friends to go through Freedom Fight’s 30-Day Challenge on sexual purity and resisting pornography

 

Prep Commitment (2-3 hour per week)

  • Bible Study: Participants will utilize the inductive Bible study method to prepare for your discussion on 2 Timothy each week
  • Book Discussion: Read a few chapters of The Fuel and the Flame to discuss with your D-Groups
  • Scripture Memory: Memorize a Scripture each week to be reviewed in your D-Groups
