TOAGs are missional communities that provide great practical Stateside training for long-term missionaries and/or meaningful missions for those that want to reach Muslims around them. A TOAG takes the form of a 10-month “after-hours internship”.
Some key distinctives of a TOAG are:
- interns are highly encouraged to live in close proximity to each other and in close proximity to Muslim populations
- interns are expected to maintain a job to simulate reality for many missionaries overseas that need a platform to be in countries closed to Christians
- interns will spend approximately 10 hours a week on TOAG – at least 3 hours together in the Word, 2 hours with a Muslim, and 1 in corporate prayer
- currently in approximately 15 locations.
