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.

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 in a cross-cultural environment, by working alongside the local team to plan and run the camp. You will grow mutually with your Croatian co-counselors, as you share life and faith. 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 you and 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 tobecome more aligned with God’s as you partner with the work He is doing in Croatia.
