Join us this July as we serve alongside long-term workers in Eastern Europe! This short-term trip will be strategically focused on prayer, demonstrating the gospel through service, and personal evangelism. On this trip, you can expect to engage with locals, learn about their culture, serve them, offer to pray with them, and seek to share the gospel with them!
The long-term team engages in making disciples amongst the Muslim population in their country through local churches as well as their own NGO/nonprofit. They run English camps and classes, and seek to equip the church with simple, effective tools for evangelism and sharing the gospel. Additionally, through prayer walking in their day to day lives, they seek to use the same tools to find People of Peace (or POPs) and start Discovery Bible Studies or discovery groups.
Note from the Team there:
"This country is one of the most beautiful, unique, and complicated places on the planet, and our team is so grateful to call it home."
As team members are learning from and engaging with others, team members should have a heart posture of humility and remember that culture does not make people, people make the culture.
The typical day will include some outreach opportunities, specifically English camp for kids in the community as well as prayer walking through an area of the city. There will be a daily debrief and time to talk about what they saw, learned, or did. The team will have the opportunity to attend the small local church the ministry partner is connected to and get to join in their regular prayer meetings. There will be a rest day incorporated, as well as an opportunity to fast with the team.
Most of the young people and professionals in the city will speak some amount of English.
We desire you to pursue Jesus in your daily life and grow to be more like Him. We will provide trainings that walk through abiding and resting in Jesus (John 15), ministry overview and expectations, culture, and logistics. While we can’t perfectly prepare you for everything you might encounter, we do our best to train you with everything you’d need for your trip.
Being a short-term mission trip leader is a rewarding experience. It makes you a part of the Great Commission, letting you respond to God’s call to the nations in a sacrificial way while also shepherding a group of people.

Everything you need for your trip is included in the trip cost, which can be viewed here. These amounts are based on preparation costs and costs given to us by the field partner.
