Leadership Opportunities


student leadersThere are several opportunities for student leadership within the Belmont on Mission programming - serving as a student leader on a trip, leading a team of volunteers to serve and love our guests with Room in the Inn, or being one of our leaders on the Missional Engagement Council for 2019-2020!

Every Plunge and Immersion trip offers the opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills through serving as a trip leader. You’ll help your fellow students enter more fully into the immersion experience and the challenges caused by seeing the world from a new perspective. You’ll assist throughout the trip in logistics, spiritual reflection, and community. University Ministries will provide extensive training, so you don’t have to know everything or be an expert on social justice issues – you just need to be open to learning, walking with other students, and sharing from your own experiences. 

Please contact our team at 615-460-6419 or if you have more questions. 

Leadership Opportunities with the MEC 

Belmont on Mission will be expanding its dedicated student leadership positions for the 2020 academic year.  These student leaders will serve as part of the Missional Engagement Council, or the MEC. 

The MEC is a committed group of student leaders within Belmont on Mission who help to plan and promote short-term mission trips to help students find their purpose in God’s story. This unique year-long opportunity allows students to engage their educational background and interests with student-centered, service-oriented experience. It will involve a variety of work involving logistics, planning, education, marketing, and more, depending on which position you are selected for. All majors, interests, and levels of experience are welcome. Students who are passionate about using their skills to serve and transform the student community and the greater community through Belmont on Mission are encouraged to apply! 

Benefits of leading on the MEC: 

  • Role dependent $500-$1500 trip subsidy 
  • Growing knowledge of sustainable mission ideology and practices 
  • Tangible experience in all aspects of sending short term mission trips
  • Flexible scheduling

What's different this year as opposed to prior years?
