Youth Missions EMT
Evangelistic Missions Training
June 19-27, 2020 | Reading, PA
Phase One: June 19-23
Phase Two: June 23-27
EMT stands for Evangelistic Missions Training and has served as a transformational event in the lives of DOVE Youth for over 25 years. This week-long overnight training is designed to teach youth ‘the normal Christian life’ of outreach, love, and relationship with God. We do this through key teachings followed immediately by outreaches in downtown Reading, PA. High schoolers experience a paradigm shift as they discover missions isn’t something they do, but it is actually who they are.
In order for any tool to be used, it must undergo a tremendous amount of heat and pressure to be forged into its intended purpose. We also have an intended purpose, to walk in love and power as an ambassador of the King (2 Corinthians 5:20).
It takes intense training to live up to such a call. This eight- day training and outreach will not be easy, but our prayer is that it will forge you into a mighty weapon in God’s hand!
Phase One Equip and Activate
God has a unique call on your life. Through powerful teaching, prayer, and worship discover the distinct ways that God has equipped you to share the love of God. At EMT we will empower you with the resources of Heaven to know who you are and whose you are. After Jesus equipped his disciples, he sent them out “to proclaim the Kingdom of God.” Being sent activated their faith! Throughout the four-day training, we will activate our faith in the afternoons in Reading, PA through service and street evangelism.
Phase Two Launch
After equipping and activation, you are ready to launch into a four-day outreach with a team of young people in Reading and the surrounding region! Launch teams will have specific ministry focuses like VBS, creative arts or sports outreach. Space is limited, and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Outreach teams will debrief Saturday, June 27 before returning home.
