JOIN US FOR MISSIONS EXPLORE
Missions Explore is a brand new initiative aimed at answering any question you may have about missions – hands on! Many in YWAM has a heart for Missions, but don’t know where to go or how to take the first step.
Missions Explore is a 4-week exposure and training program, where you’ll join a team of likeminded people and travel to the Mission field. You’ll visit long-term missionaries and team working among unreached people groups, the least and the lost.
During the Mission Explore program, you’ll be introduced to a variety of ministries and models of advancing the Kingdom of God in different cultures, people groups, and spheres of society. Some of the ministries could be:
- Church planting among unreached people groups
- Refugee and aid
- Language centers and student-work
- Ministry among unprivileged women
- Media ministries,
- “Business as Mission”-projects.
You’ll meet long-termers that are investing their lives to make a difference. You’ll hear them share their stories, victories and struggles, joys, and challenges. This is a unique opportunity to experience a long-term ministry from the inside out, see their strategy and approach hands-on, and explore multiple models that may be of great help as you take next steps in faith.
But Missions Explore is much more than us visiting long-term teams on the field. Every week we’ll be having 8-10 hours of quality teaching covering important topics relating to long-term missions; cultural adaption, language learning, church planting models and strategy, how to prepare for long-term ministry and build a home support base, cultural contextualization, how to start a business with a mission, etc.
The combination of hand-on exposure and powerful teaching in a safe environment will help to give you an in-depth and realistic picture of what it means to serve as a long-term missionary and help you bridge the gap between present perceptions and ideas and the reality on the field. Bridging the gap also means an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and the culture you are presently living in to engage with a totally different culture and worldview, showing you what it will take to equip you to present the gospel in a new and foreign context.
We’ll look for opportunities to do some actual ministry like evangelism, treasure hunting or maybe even lead a bible study among new believers.
During Missions Explore you’ll visit at least 2 countries and the team will be lead by YWAM staff with experience from the area you’ll be traveling.
Last but not least: We’ll have loads of fun together exploring the tastes and richness of the local cuisine and culture!
