Longhorn BSM Requirements

Our priority in sending students on missions experiences is to prepare you to have the best possible experience.  Since this is such a priority, the BSM has additional training requirements than those of Go Now Missions (official sending agency of Texas BSMs).  We also have a debriefing process established to help you process your experience and connect all that you have seen and done back to life in Austin. 

Attend at least one of three experiences in order to learn what to expect during your appointed mission. 

  • A previous Go Now mission trip
  • Beach Reach (March 15-22) 
  • Hands-on Training Weekend: This FREE weekend will be led by a staff member. 

Training Nights:  Small group time with fellow summer missionaries to have more training, accountability and a shared going experience.

  • Training dates + times TBD.

Go Now Missions Requirements

Local Interview

Discovery Weekend

  • Discovery Weekend is a time set aside for you to “discover” how God wants to use you in His global purpose. It involves worship, small groups, a missions fair, fundraising training, an individual interview, and much more. Following the weekend, students are notified about where they are invited to serve.

Meet all agreements on fundraising, shots and other trip specific expectations

Orientation and Commissioning Service 

  • Orientation is a time to prepare alongside your teammates. You will also be commissioned along with the rest of the Go Now missionaries.
