Beyond Boundaries 2018
Approximate dates: May 25-July 9, 2018
Estimated budget: $5,000
Jump in with two families to help continue their ministry launch through a summer English language program. Summer programs are a key time to gather students for times of relational building though summer English camps. Your time with these two lay leader Eurasian families will have lasting eternal impact. These programs create critical mass and great relational ministry opportunities. As a native speaker of English you are already a professional in the language and will gain additional training in-country!
Your ministry will be in a city of about 400,000, a key location for future Navigator ministry in the region. The city is located at the foot of the mountains and gives us access to students who are in several unreached people groups! You will be leading in conversational English with older high school and young college students. And of course, there will be time for hiking, games, activities, talent shows, sports, and even a 2-3 day trip with the students to one of the most spectacular parts of Eurasia.
We will first travel to the capital city for orientation and sightseeing before taking an additional flight to our final ministry destination. Participants should be comfortable with much walking, hiking, sharing their testimony and letting the listener contemplate truth without putting pressure on him or her to make a decision. Sharing Christ is relational one on one through conversations. Evangelism is done through loving the locals first. Not only do we not want to be viewed as a cult or sect, there are laws that make it a crime to evangelize. Our team will need to be creative and careful in how we share our faith so that we do not jeopardize the local’s long term ministry.
Be prepared for a high energy, fun time with about 30 Eurasian students. It will be a summer you will never forget and one that will have an eternal impact on God’s Kingdom! Jump in and “GO BEYOND BOUNDARIES 2018.” Your life will never be the same!
