go-now-logoThe GoNow Initiative is a growing movement of college students with the Summit Church who are committing their summers, semesters, or 2-Years of their lives after college to serve with one of our local, national, or international church plants. Our God is a Missionary God. He is calling college students to join Him in response to the Great Commission.

God is the creator and sustainer of all things, and we have all fallen short of his holy intentions for our design. We have all earned death through our wretched sin. But God, being rich in mercy, has provided a way for us to be reconciled back to himself through giving his own son, Jesus Christ. That is the good news we call the gospel! Anyone who calls on the name of Jesus will be saved from the eternal death they deserve, forgiven of their sins, and be adopted as a child of God! Jesus has invited us to be his disciples and commanded us to go into the entire world and make disciples of all nations! That’s what “GoNow” is all about – every single one of us living as a missionary, growing deeper in the gospel, and proclaiming this great news of hope to the entire world – those across the street and around the globe! We invite you to come join us in the mission of God in order that the slain Lamb of God will truly receive the reward of his great suffering (Rev. 5). Come with us and be a disciple who makes disciples of all nations!

So what is unique about the GoNow Initiative?

We believe the gospel changes everything. GoNow teams are sent to be a part of the long-term work of Summit partners that is specifically, intentionally, and strategically focused on seeing the gospel go forth to places where it is not known.

We believe that the local church is God’s “Plan A” for seeing the gospel known among all nations. Our summer, semester, and 2 year teams are sent from the local church and sent to plant and strengthen the local churches around the world.

We believe people are the mission, not projects. GoNow teams are involved in work that is more focused on relationships with people than accomplishing projects or tasks. Strategic projects are often necessary to gain the right to share the gospel; however, sharing Jesus with the unreached and equipping the local church is the primary goal!
