ST - Beyond Boundaries 2019
Approximate dates: May 27 - July 8, 2019
Estimated budget: $5,400
Region: South Central
Orientation: Colorado Springs
Jump in with two local families and 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 through summer English camps. Your time with these two leading families will have a lasting eternal impact. With these energetic summer programs comes critical mass and great relational ministry opportunities. As a native speaker of English you are already a professional in the language so no worries about that part! You will get some great training too!
Your ministry will be in a city of about 400,000 and is a key location for future Navigator ministry in the region. The city is located at the foot of a beautiful mountain range and gives us access to students who are in several un-reached people groups! You will be leading and helping 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.
We will have a few days of orientation and sightseeing before taking an additional flight to our final ministry destination. Participants should be comfortable with a lot of walking, hiking, sharing their testimony, and letting the listener contemplate truth without putting pressure on him or her to make a decision. Sharing Christ here is done through relationship in one on one through conversations. Evangelism is done through loving the person first. Not only do we not want to be viewed as a cult, there are laws that make it a crime to evangelize. So the team will need to will need to be creative and careful in how we share our faith so that we do not jeopardize the local missionary’s long term ministry.
Be prepared for high energy fun with about 40 students. It will be a summer you will never forget and one that will have an eternal impact for God’s Kingdom! Your life will never be the same!
