WELCOME

 

Please take a moment and look into The Commissioned, a SPIRITUAL LIFE INITIATIVE to develop young adults as followers of Christ. The Lord has sent out a call to young men and women for deeper intimacy, more radical commitment and a wholehearted pursuit of the Kingdom of God. This is your first step of fulfilling that call.

 

Students in SLI can expect their year of intense discipleship to be both extremely challenging and greatly rewarding. They can also expect to encounter the Lord Jesus Christ in a measure they have yet to experience. Your SLI year will build a stronger foundation for your life and prepare you for the next step, whether it be college, the workplace or wherever God calls you.

 

As you explore this site, consider the Lord’s call to a deeper level of sonship, the need for discipleship in your life, and the responsibility and tremendous privilege of fulfilling God’s call on your life. We invite you to ask yourself, “Am I willing to be challenged; to pay the price; to become a history maker and affect my generation?”

There is a place for you so consider joining us!

INTRODUCTION

 

It is the conviction of the GSI leadership that there is ultimately but one Master who gave us His Great Commission. The Master is Jesus, the Son of God, our Lord and Savior. His Great Commission commands us to “... go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”  (Matthew 28:19)

 

Young people who have chosen to enter The Commissioned DLI are choosing to dedicate nine months of their lives to God in full-time service and discipleship. It is our fervent prayer that they will take their place in the body of Christ to join in the work of the Great Commission. In the end, may it be said of them that they are “... vessels of honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.” (2 Timothy 2:21). This is truly the life of The Commissioned!
