GoWeek 2

Date: 
September 12, 2021 to September 19, 2021
Location: 
GoWeek Part 1: Virtual Classroom + GoWeek Part 2: Launch Gathering at Camp Victory Minnesota

“GoWeek is your first step as an official GoCorps Goer: Class of 2021!”

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.

We are confident that Hybrid GoWeek 2021 - GoWeek Part 1: Virtual Classroom and GoWeek Part 2: Launch Gathering - will equip you with everything you need biblically, spiritually, emotionally, and practically to successfully start your journey overseas!

Arrival/Departure Details

TBD

Transportation will be provided to and from the airport/retreat center on Thursday when you arrive and on Sunday when you leave. You do not need to book any transportation or lodging.

Thursday is strictly a travel day. Your flight can take off anytime on Thursday, as long as it arrives in MSP by 2:00pm. However, there will be multiple shuttle runs from the airport to Camp Victory throughout the day on Thursday, and there will be many fun activities, time to meet our staff and other Goers and hang out, rest, etc. that afternoon, so arriving early is a plus.**Please wear your "Go Beyond Ordinary" GoCorps shirt you received in the Welcome Package to make airport pick-ups more fun (and easier)!
