Mobilization Partners

The world needs a new kind of missionary and 20-somethings are uniquely positioned to answer the call.  We are a mobilization and placement agency that partners with church, campus and ministry leaders toward the vision that two years of global service and missions would be the new norm for Christians after college.

“No collegiate leader has enough time or bandwidth to do everything! Effective leaders focus on their strengths and find partners and allies to help them accomplish the big dreams and visions they have for their students. For over a decade, collegiate leaders have relied on GoCorps to provide a carefully curated list of vetted organizations and global placements for their graduating seniors and young adults. We help leaders to mobilize the 98% who don’t feel called to career missions. We’d love to talk to you about your dreams for your ministry and campus!”

Tools and Resources

Our team has created these twelve models, events and resources to help more of your students find their place in God’s global work. Together, we strengthen your efforts to make your ministry globally minded and involved. Most importantly, we help you to engage students who normally wouldn’t see themselves in the ministry or missions track! Let us help you by equipping and partnering with you in these ways:

The GoCorps Placement List contains two year opportunities for recent grads to use their degree, be mentored and live on mission alongside long-term teams. We handpick each team as we find the ‘missionary yodas’ out there: gifted and experienced team leaders with a vision for mentoring young ‘skywalkers’ in living and serving globally!
This proprietary coaching tool is an interactive way for students to do a guided self evaluation and inventory of their values, risk tolerance and understanding of their spiritual gifts and calling. In the end, students are challenged to find the sweet spot of where all of these intersect and given practical next step application points.
If you want resurrect a dormant or dying ‘missions emphasis week’, consider partnering with us for a Use Your Degree Overseas global vision week. We’ll work with you to partner with academic departments to bring students’ major and God’s mission together!
We love exhorting students to lift their eyes to the global harvest and find their specific place in God’s global work. Our specialties include the Biblical Basis (Genesis to Revelation!) of Missions, the Unreached and Don’t Waste Your 20s themes.
This is the deepest and most direct program that you could create to give your students an on-ramp in their year of transition (second semester senior year to the first six months after graduation.) GoCorps Cohort is utilizes community, connections and equipping to help students successfully find a way to use their degree globally as their first step after graduation.
This four to six week curriculum looks at what the biblical basis of missions and is a great way for student led groups to lay firm foundations and plant seeds of global vision!
This is a TED Talk version of our Find Your Place personal coaching sessions. A fun and inspiring evening with 6 minute talks including ‘Playing it Safe is Risky,’ ‘Why Your 20s Matter,’ and ‘Live Your 20s On Purpose.’ This event requires production effort and is a great larger group special event (and is a great event included in the Use Your Degree Overseas vision week.)
Our recommended training modules are:
  • God’s Genesis to Revelation Story of Missions
  • The 5 Roles of a Goer: How Jesus Did Missions
  • The Biblical Basis of Fundraising
  • Whiteness and Missions: What You Need to Know Before Your Short-Term Missions Trip

Bring us in to teach on these themes or we can work with you to incorporate these teaching sessions into your ministry.

  • A Glimpse at God’s World: Putting Your Mission Trip in Context
  • Five Ways to Be Globally Involved from Your Dorm Room
  • Change Your Global Zipcode: An Intro to Mid-Term Missions
Our coaching staff interacts with hundreds of students and young adults and are experts on understanding, coaching and leading Gen Z. Bring our coaching team in to consult with you and your team. We present a cross cultural approach to understanding Gen Z and give you ongoing tools and insight that will help you relate to and lead your students better. Choose from a one time or up to a one year consulting contract. Contact consulting@gocorps.org for more info.
Is it your dream to have a dedicated mobilizer on your staff? Someone who would daily be working with you and your team to help your students and young adults engage missionally and to find their place and specific role in God’s global work? In this arrangement, our staff member would be a .25 or .5 on your staff helping you to achieve your mobilization goals. The best part... there’s no cost to your budget!
Getting face to face time with GoCorps staff, our sending partner reps and with other mobilization partners from campuses and churches around the country is refreshing and always helpful as you are leading your ministry and engaging your students in the great commission.

Our #1 Mobilization Tool

The most value added resource that we can offer you is our Placement List. This list takes months of work and contains 100+ opportunities where recent grads can join long-term teams and projects to put their degrees and passions to work while serving and growing in mission. Each partner org is carefully vetted and each placement is selected based on the criteria of an experienced and pastoral team leader, a healthy team, a strategic project with proven results and a commitment from the team and leader to invest in the Goers that join their team.
