Emerging Leaders’ Cohorts Application Information
We are now accepting applications for this year’s Emerging Leaders’ cohorts. 

These cohorts are for youth and young adults ranging from 16-to 29 years old and US citizens or legal residents. The cohorts will be divided into two main age groups, 16-20 and 21-29, with 12 individuals per cohort. Applications will close on October 30, 2023.

What will you experience as an Emerging Leader cohort member?

These cohorts are designed to walk alongside youth and young adults, supporting their faith journeys and helping each member better discern God’s calling on their lives.

Our newest group of cohorts will kick off their experience with a “Lessons Learned” weekend retreat via Zoom, starting Friday evening, July 14, through Saturday, July 15, 2023. The list below is a glimpse of what will take place within these cohorts:

  • Membership is for two years
  • Regular bi-monthly meetings
  • Prayer partners within each cohort
  • Theological studies
  • Learn IM’s unique missiology
  • Build relationships within your cohort
  • Roundtable conversations with current and retired global servants
  • Gain a better understanding of the local church’s role, denominations, regional associations, special assistants, and volunteers
  • Attend local and national conferences
  • Participate in cross-cultural short-term mission trips as a cohort and/or individually

These cohorts are a fantastic opportunity to have a unique experience with your brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe that within each of us is a leader awaiting the opportunity, guidance, and confidence to emerge. Through these cohorts, may your inner leader find the boldness to serve.

Our goal is to have these cohorts be diverse in gender, race, denominational affiliation, creative and spiritual gifts, and more.
