Tennessee Youth Venture Team

Do you know a high school student with a passion for missions? Encourage them to apply to be a part of the Venture Team! We are looking for six to eight top-level missional students from across the state to serve on the 2023-24 Tennessee Youth Venture Team.

Students will be challenged, discipled and mentored in a strategic missions lifestyle through a team retreat, Bible studies, and training/equipping opportunities with mission leaders and missionaries.

More information and the online application and reference form are available here. Applications are due by May 15 and the term of service will begin on June 1, 2023.

Through the Sports JAM kit, you can lead your children's ministry to see how missionaries around the world are using various sports to reach people with the gospel. The kit includes a missionary study with videos, Bible study on how we are commanded to share the gospel with those who haven't heard, and ideas for sports themed games, snacks, and crafts...and so much more!
