Mike Holt, our founder, as well as the rest of our staff hold credentials with the Assemblies of God. However our ministry works multi-denominationally through our various outreaches and students from all backgrounds are welcome to apply with the understanding that you will be exposed to worship settings of various denominations.
Journeymen who are removed from Missio Dei due to disciplinary reasons are not eligible for reimbursement. Journeymen who must leave the program due to circumstances beyond their control are eligible to receive reimbursement for up to 2/3 of tuition costs. The housing portion is non-refundable in either case.
All Journeymen are expected to uphold a standard of excellence in every part of their life both public and private as they represent both Christ and the ministry wherever they go. Failure to uphold this standard could result in disciplinary action and correction or even early dismissal. Instances which could result in disciplinary action include (but are not limited to):
-Not having a sense or an attitude of honor towards staff and each other, i.e. Staff must be addressed as “Pastor…” and fellow Journeymen are to be treated as brothers and sisters.
-Having a poor attitude when asked to fulfill a task by a staff member or leader in the ministry we are working with regardless of if that task fits within your comfort zone or natural abilities.
-Not demonstrating care in personal appearance and hygiene. Your appearance reflects your attitude, therefore, make every effort to look presentable every day including ministry, travel, and off days. This also includes leaving inappropriate clothing at home and not wearing anything too tight, too low, too baggy, or too revealing the entire time you are with Missio Dei.
-Inappropriate Male/ Female relationships which includes course joking, physical contact beyond a “side hug, exclusive conversations (both in person and electronic), and being alone with a member of the opposite sex in any circumstance.
-Failure to maintain designated curfew on days off. Due to the exhausting nature of our travel, curfews are put into place to ensure that each Journeymen is prepared in both mind and body for the Journey ahead of them.
-Damage or negligence of Missio Dei property including but not limited to: housing and furnishing, ministry vans and trailers, promotional material, sound and video equipment etc.
