A unique program of Tabor College is Ministry Quest. Ministry Quest is about students exploring possibilities in ministry and leadership. It is a one year, two-stage, program for high school students, ages 16-18, who are curious about the call of God and ministry. You may be wondering about your life. How is your love for God going to combine with your gifts and passions? Could occupational ministry be for you? Each stage of MQ features a mentoring relationship, a retreat and three ministry observations.
The first stage, Charting Your Course, focuses on growing more in love with Jesus and figuring out what it means to be ‘called’. To open this stage, students will attend a five-day intensive retreat in Denver, CO. Students will then engage in thirteen mentoring sessions with a leader from their church, and observe their pastor in two distinct ministry settings.
The second stage, Setting Your Sail, focuses on getting to know more about yourself, leadership and ministry. Students participate in thirteen more mentoring sessions and one significant ministry experience. This stage concludes with a five-day retreat in Denver.
Students who wish to participate in MQ need to apply AND be nominated by their church. First, speak to your pastor or youth leader about your interest in participating in MQ, then fill out your application.
