See what He’s doing in you.
See what He’s doing through you.

Service [Week 1]

  • Build relationships with students as well as co-teachers.
  • Listen closely to what God is teaching through this experience.

Evangelism [Week 2]

Spend time with the participant’s local co-teachers from the English summer camp, learning more about the area and the culture.

  • Build relationships with their co-teachers.
  • Demonstrate Christ’s love.
  • Engage in spiritual conversations that engage, affirm, and challenge their co-teachers to consider who Jesus is.

Discovery [Week 3]

Minister with long-term workers in another region, prayer walking, learning about their specific ministry, and engaging with locals there.

  • Gain a vision for what God is doing amongst the nations.
  • Engage spiritually in that specific area (i.e. prayer, etc.)
