Student Cohort

This student cohort has been developed collaboratively by the Mississippi United Methodist Annual Conference and Ministry Architects and designed to equip today’s leaders from different church sizes, cultures and locations to grow and serve their various communities as lifelong disciples comfortable with questions and doubts.  

This two year commitment will launch with a limit of 22 high school students. These are our goals:

  • Students will return to their churches equipped and passionate about serving in and through their local church.

  • Students will be clearer about their unique gifts: whether it be in a ministry vocation or in some other calling (lay       servanthood).   

  • Students of different genders, ethnicities, ages, worship styles and varying church sizes, will build a rich sense of       community.

  • Students will then plan and implement a shared-mission event each year as they journey together.
