“Lots of factors go into where someone pursues their career. Why wouldn’t the Kingdom and mission of God be the largest of those factors?”
That’s how Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear describes the motivation behind Go2, an initiative that challenges college students to commit their first two years after graduation to serving with a church plant in the US or overseas as they begin their careers.
Some new graduates, Greear said, will join domestic church plants as lay leaders and volunteers, while others will join as a North American Mission Board Send City planter or an International Mission Board Journeyman participant.
“Either way, I am praying that we would flood NAMB and IMB with young and eager candidates for mission of God,” said Greear, pastor of The Summit Church in the Raleigh-Durham, N.C., area.
Go2 helps college graduates connect their vocational skills with their missional calling, said NAMB President Kevin Ezell.
“This is a great chance for someone just out of school who might be working as a nurse, engineer, graphic artist or school teacher to connect through Go2 and also serve as a church planting team member, adding their unique gifts to sharing and spreading the Gospel,” Ezell said. “We have church plants all across North America who would be blessed by the active involvement of new college graduates and their energy, enthusiasm and passion.”
