Students will assist local workers in building new relationships and deepening existing relationships with a difficult-to-engage population, particularly among the younger generations. This trip will focus more on 'living life' with people than doing specific ministry activities; however, the trip will likely include vast amounts of prayer and teaching English. Learning about Muslim culture and sharing about our culture will be a huge platform for building relationships. If the team has people with some sort of sports background, that might also be used as a platform for ministry.

Have you ever asked, “How can I integrate the gospel mission into all of my life?” Or, “What am I going to do after I graduate"? Or, “How can I live as an everyday missionary in my professional career and calling after school?” If you are ready to find the answer to those questions, this is the experience for you and your friends. You'll be guided in taking leadership of your life, calling, and mission in a post-Christian world! This Spring Break Intensive or Summer Immersive project will train you to see your life, relationships, work and gospel mission as an integrated whole. You will embed with micro-churches (in homes and storefronts) to learn the rhythms of everyday mission. Your time will be spent in practicums across where you live, work, play and learn through nearly daily discipleship. You will receive accredited coaching on your vocational clarity and personal marketing strategy to enter the marketplace. Mentors in entrepreneurship, music, UX design, digital art, human resources, hospitality, and bi-vocational church planting are available. You can explore whether this is the right next step for you by participating in a virtual practicum for 4 weeks on Zoom.
Team of 4-8 students. May 22 – June 18.
This team will work with refugees from other African nations living in refugee camps in Uganda. This team will perform a variety of tasks.

Team members need to have a servant's heart and a teachable spirit.
*At this time, a COVID vaccine will be necessary to participate on this trip.
