There are multiple pathways for you to join Intrepid. Since we’re linked to and part of several organizations it means you have options.

  • Generate / MCUSA - You can link up this way for denominational covering and credentialing.

  • TEAM Missions - You can go through TEAM as a missionary under the region of the North American Ministry Area. TEAM has a 130 year history of mobilizing missionaries all over the world.

What if you could bring your passions and skills into ministry?


"When God puts a passion in your heart, whether it be relieving starvation in Africa or educating children in the inner city or making movies with redemptive messages, that God-ordained passion becomes your responsibility. And you have a choice to make. Are you going to be irresponsibly responsible or responsibly irresponsible?" (Mark Batterson)

Passion + Planting

How do you turn what you're passionate about into a way to love people and the community you're in? Build trails, work on bikes, take someone snowboarding, roast coffee, run together, quilt, grow vegetables, and so much more. Maybe you're a lot more intrepid than you thought. Build a trail, plant a church.

Those who are intrepid are risk takers. Not reckless and impulsive, but willing to step out in faith and go against the current. So much of church planting in North America has been captured by professionalism. Most of us are not rock stars nor even like big crowds. What if evangelism and church planting was simply about being who God wired and made you to be? What if you could actually use your God-give passions, experiences, and interests to live intentionally in a town, connect with those who've yet to experience God's love, and out of that see a new church birthed?


What if you could join others in this church planting adventure?

Networking with Intrepid

Are you an intrepid adventurer, entrepreneur, and church planter? If so, we'd love to connect! Admittedly Intrepid is a strange breed ... combining social entrepreneurship with church planting in off-the-beaten-path kinds of places. Maybe not a strange breed, but a rare breed.

This is a networking group to share ideas and best practices for startups, community development, and church planting.
