“GoWeek is your first step as an official GoCorps Goer: Class of 2019!”

During GoWeek, you’ll get to meet the other Goers from across the country, learn more about the ministry and the location that you’ll be working in and we’ll equip you with a solid foundation in fundraising and raising a base of supporters who will pray and support you during the next two years.  But most importantly, we’ll spend time pursuing God’s heart and continue the work of prayer and preparation for being a message bearer to the least reached.

Objectives

Corporate worship and prayer – United prayer and worship time with all of the GoCorps teams and partnering organizations.
Team and Track Time – You'll have time each day for fellowship and location-specific orientation with your team and with a rep from your sending organization.
Partnership Campaign Training – Support-raising training to equip you with everything you need for a foundation in rapidly recruiting a prayer and funding team.
Core teachings on cross-cultural work and spiritual formation – Are you ready to do whatever it takes?  What to expect and how to prepare for ministry among the least reached.
