We invite high school students with a passion for missions to apply for the Venture Team! We are looking for six to eight top-level missional students from across the state to participate in the 2024-25 Tennessee Youth Venture Team.

Students will be challenged, discipled and mentored in a strategic missions lifestyle through a team retreat (July 26-27, 2024 at Carson Springs), Bible studies and mission learning experiences, as well as training/equipping opportunities with mission leaders and missionaries. There will also be an opportunity to join a mission trip during the summer of 2025.

Applications are due by May 15, 2024 and the term of service will begin on June 1, 2024.

*This is open to students entering grades 10-12 in the coming school year.

Mission Statement:
Equipping missional students to venture upward, inward, and outward.

  • Upward- focused on and pursuing God
  • Inward-Growing through authentic accountability and the spiritual disciplines
  • Outward-living on mission, prioritizing God’s global glory

Purpose Statement:

It is the goal of TN Youth Venture Team to seek out student leaders who are dedicated to growing upward (Matt. 6:33) through their focus and pursuit of God, growing inward (Psalm 119:10-11) by means of authentic spiritual discipline and accountability, and growing outward (Romans 1:16) prioritizing God’s message of salvation to a lost world; all while motivating and guiding their peers to do the same.
