Prayer is the foundation of all Christian life. As missionaries, we are called to be totally Jesus-centered to the point that our hearts, minds, words and actions are consumed by the love of Jesus. All of our activity flows out of our prayer life, which includes both personal and communal prayer. Our prayer includes a daily personal holy hour, daily mass when available, and a vibrant life of worship seeking a greater outpouring of the Spirit. Missionary households also establish routines of prayer utilizing the liturgy of the hours for morning and night prayer.
Our missionary community will sharpen you. Missionaries live in men’s and women’s households that pray together, live life together, and evangelize together. Christian communal living calls you out of yourself and into the radical love of others. Community members enter into year-round formation and small groups with one another.
As disciples of Jesus, we are all called to disciple others. As missionaries, we desire to be witnesses to all, but also to journey with particular individuals to form them into the full stature of Christ. As missionaries, you will disciple small groups and individuals on retreats, in youth ministry programs, and within school outreach programs.
Many Christians are afraid to take a risk for Jesus. As missionaries, you will be invited to outreach in schools and parishes and will be given opportunities for street evangelization and prayer ministry.
Missionaries will be equipped with confidence-building tools in evangelization and discipleship, will receive training in effective middle school and high school youth ministry. Missionaries will grow in greater confidence in prayer ministry. If desired, after missionary service is complete, missionaries will be provided a letter of recommendation and help transitioning into a ministry career.
