Short-Term Missions Trip to Eastern Europe: Campus & Community Ministry

Invest your summer into living and discipling among the lost in the diverse and amazing country of Russia. Dive deep into a different culture where you will have an opportunity to love different people groups in one focus area. As a native English speaker, you have a special gift and will have a great impact by joining local staff in running a high-energy English camp for both children and students.  You will have opportunities to build friendships and share your hopes, values and beliefs.

The length and intensity of this short-term missions trip will stretch your faith and grow your character. God will deepen your dependence on Jesus and grow your ability love in ways you have never known. You and your team will face challenges such as cultural stress, home sickness, interpersonal conflict, long days of work, and life in a shared housing environment. This incredible program includes:

  • Three full days of pre-field specific teaching and cultural training.
  • Orientation and fun travel activities in the capital
  • Preparing for and running two kids English camps
  • One-week break for rest, hiking and exploring the nearby mountains
  • Lesson planning and then running a high school English camp.
  • One week of fun outings and personal life story sharing with older students

If you love spending time with kids and students, want to minister among the lost by taking initiative to build friendships, and are willing let God grow your humility and dependence on Christ, then this trip might be the perfect fit for you!  Also, if you are an education major and want some training and experience teaching kids in a cross cultural environment.  This trip might be for you!

Immerse yourself in a new world and let God expand your view of the Gospel moving among the nations. Serve the local staff and their English school while gaining a deeper glimpse into God’s heart as you share life with those who do not yet know Jesus. Expect your heart to grow big in love for the lost as you join us this summer!
