What to Expect

Participant Fee

The tuition fee is $1,000. Expenses not covered by this tuition include roundtrip airfare to Austin TX in August, as well as the expense of an international mission trip, from $1200 to $3500, depending on destination

Length of Assignment

Pathways begins with a retreat at the end of August and continues through the following month of May, approximately 9-months. 

Regular Activities

Classes are held by Zoom on Monday and Tuesday evenings. You must not have other commitments that conflict with these meetings. You will need a computer or tablet with the Zoom app. You will be expected to engage weekly with your people group under the coordination of your local supervisor.

Lodging & Travel

Pathways would like for you to live in proximity to the people group you are engaging. Apartment rental, food, utilities, insurance, etc. can be discussed with the Pathways Director and your local supervisor during the interview. 


For some metro areas like New York City, public transportation will be used the majority of the time. For other cities having your car is best.

Health Considerations

You will be doing a lot of walking, so you must be in good physical condition.
