About this Location

This country in South Asia (not disclosed for security purposes) is one of the most unreached parts of the world- with over 95% of the massive population having little to no access to the gospel. It’s challenging terrain & not for the faint of heart- a blend of chaos & diversity, extreme beauty & extreme suffering. The experienced team in this mid-sized green city in the foothills of the Himalayas makes for a softer landing. There’s great need for pioneering spirits with hearts for contextualization & discipleship to connect the South Asian people to the love of Christ.

As part of the summer program, experience life as a cross-cultural worker immersed in a new culture, be mentored by experienced teammates, prayer walk the city & learn introductory Hindi to connect with locals. You’ll leave South Asia with a greater understanding of how God is moving in this part of the world and what contextualization of the gospel looks like in an unreached place.

 

Team Mission/Vision

Mission: To address the holistic needs of communities through compassionate and innovative outreach projects and develop strong, local leaders who reflect and live out the Gospel through the cultural and worldview shifts
