The Experience is our three-month missions school.
Our desire is for you to experience a powerful transformation that will impact your life and further reveal your calling. The Experience was created to provide an answer to the ministerial reality of being a missionary during a short-term school.
Mission schools have amazing trainings, excellent teachers, and incomparable experiences, but students often return home and quickly realize that they lacked the experience of what the daily life of a missionary looks like. As a result, the students do not grasp the full picture of a life in missions after the school.
The dynamic of our school is different. From day 1, you will be treated as a missionary and will be part of our team of volunteers from the beginning. One of our full-time missionaries will be your mentor and will be with you throughout the school. You will assist them with the work they do at Shores of Grace.
Once you have completed The Experience, you may be given the opportunity to be part of an internship with us. This means you become a part of our Shores of Grace staff for a month with your lodging provided. All students will also have the opportunity to go on an international, national, or local mission trip.

“We are not created to be thermometers; we are created to be thermostats. Thermometers simply gauge the temperature, but thermostats change the temperature.”
We are honored to receive awesome speakers from Brazil and all over the world in addition to our Shores team.
The Experience is structured into three sections: Identity, Purpose, and Practical Missions. During The Experience, we will spend three weeks speaking and teaching about these sections respectively. We believe all the teachings our students need are based on three key principles: Love God – Love People – Change the World.
Monthly Overview: The first month will contain most of the teaching sessions and will provide a practical guide towards life as a missionary. During the second month, there will be fewer classes and will be more focus on missions work. The last month will have just a few classes and will be geared towards the missions work itself
