Short-Term Mission Trip to Croatia: Community Development and Youth Ministry

Dedicate a portion of your summer to living and discipling among the people of Croatia. You will work alongside Croatian believers who are passionate about reconciliation, justice and healing. During your time in Croatia, you will help plan and run a summer camp for under-resourced children from diverse cultural backgrounds.

If you enjoy working with children, sharing the gospel and your testimony spontaneously and are flexible, this could be the trip for you! You will grow in teamwork, planning and running a camp from start to finish and working in a cross-cultural environment.

During your time in Croatia, you can expect to participate in the following activities:

  • Cultural orientation
  • Planning for the summer camp
  • Summer camp activities (art, sports, small groups, sharing testimonies)

Being immersed in Croatian culture and language will challenge your worldview as you develop long-lasting relationships with the children at the camps as well as with local believers and staff members.

Capture a glimpse of God’s heart for the nations as you share life with people who do not know Jesus and are under-resourced. Expect your heart to become more aligned with God’s as you partner with the work He is doing in Croatia.

Come alongside us this summer and discover the plans God has for you and for the world!
