Go2 – Challenging Your Students with a Post-Graduation Missions Ask


College ministry spend lots of time and energy meeting, teaching, and discipling students for four critical years in their lives – and with much good fruit! But what happens next? Are we missing opportunities for Kingdom impact by not strategically sending students out after graduation? The vision of Go2 is every student leveraging the first two years out of college to live life on mission.


Brian Frye (SEND Network – NAMB)

Mark Vance (Cornerstone – Ames, IA)

Dave Turner (Summit Church – Raleigh, NC)

Key Points:

  • Challenge students to “Do what you do well, for the glory of God, somewhere strategic for the mission of God.”
  • The emphasis is that EVERYONE leverage the 2 years post-graduation for the gospel.
  • Encourage students to shift thinking about where to take a job after college to “Where is God at work?” and “What healthy church can I be part of there?”

Questions to consider:

  • How are you presenting college students with an ask that goes beyond four years?
  • Would you challenge your students to specifically give the two years post-graduation to leverage their lives on mission in the places that need it most?
