The team will work a new region that has very little opportunity to hear the Gospel. This country is less than 1% evangelical Christians. There are large areas and communities without a credible Gospel witness. Your team will be sent into this area to build relationships and give a verbal witness as well as demonstrate a life witness. This country doesn't allow evangelism, missions trips or missionaries. You will be tourists seeking to understand the culture and enjoy the natural beauty. You will operate very independently from long term personnel for security reasons. You will be gathering data for long-term personnel and national partners about the local communities and places of "light" and "darkness," names of seekers and believers, and making an assessment of the communities receptivity to the Gospel.

Students will work hard daily on conservation/community development projects, build relationships with members of the community, and make opportunities to share the good news as much as possible. This project will help deepen ties between long term workers and village leaders as well as give opportunities for people to hear the good news who have never heard.

Be part of what God is doing to complete the Great Commission among the last unreached people groups in our city, located directly on the equator.

You will be going on a coffee tour of the city. There are coffee shops spread throughout our city. Your team will be tasked with going into these shops to meet people, build relationships, and share Jesus. Shops are open from mid-morning until the middle of the night and are constantly filled with people. As you visit these shops you will be keeping track of who you meet, their responsiveness to the gospel, in the hope that these new relationships will lead to further opportunities of follow-up. By making these connections with coffee shops, you will be potentially opening up doors for our coffee roasting business.
If you have any coffee work experience, i.e. barista or roaster, that could provide more opportunities to build relationships with people and coffee shops or potentially lead cupping or barista classes which could be sponsored by our coffee business. These opportunities could then greatly impact our strategy to reach the city with the gospel.

church mobilization & evangelism
14042 Team of 2 guys Reserved by Lakeview Baptist Church
Field cost: $1315 plus round trip airfare, immunizations, required travel insurance, passport & visa costs, etc.
Our team is committed to helping local Baptist churches in our province engage lostness around them. With a population of 8.3 million, our province has a lot of both: about 40 Baptist churches and about 7 unreached people groups (UPGs). Some of the UPGs and churches are 4-5 hours from the city where our team lives which limits our contact with them. This Nehemiah team would help us extend our reach out into the province to encourage, equip, and mobilize churches to engage the UPGs around them. You will be paired with national seminary students for the summer. They will serve as your language & cultural guides, you will help them by modeling an intimate walk with the Lord coupled with boldness in sharing your faith with those you meet. We are looking for team members with a passion for the local church and for the lost.

If you are a female who likes exploring urban life, going to social events, building relationships with those you meet, and sharing Jesus with Muslims then this would be the job for you. You will be a literal sociaLight who can shine the light of Jesus in a dark place that has never heard.
Your team will be living in a big coastal city and will go around to different city events, either at malls, convention halls, streets food “cities”, on the boardwalk, etc. and see who you can build relationships with and share Jesus with. The city has a booming social scene, which we have not been able to connect with yet, so you would be playing a vital role in getting into this world and making some of those connections, which could lead to potential follow-up opportunities. Your team would literally be exploring the city and seeing what there is to see, get involved in, and where to meet people.
14731 Team of 4
Field cost: $2091 plus round trip airfare, immunizations, required travel insurance, passport costs, etc.
Team member will explore, survey, and engage local tribal populations with Gospel intentionality. This team will travel (by plane, boat, bus, motorcycle, and on foot) to various locales seeking engagement with the local tribes. Through this engagement, this team will survey the area and document what they find in reports to be turned in to supervisor. (These reports will be fairly simple, but as detailed as possible.) Prayer and Gospel preparation are crucial to the task, as spiritual warfare is a reality and the enemy has had strongholds in these areas for centuries. This team needs to be full of people ready to mingle with the locals. There will be lots of people asking for your picture, wanting to talk with you, and many invitations to events and activities. Please note: our local culture is VERY group oriented and friendly. To be considered polite and be accepted here, we need team members who are quick with a smile and willing to join the locals in whatever they are doing. If you don’t like selfies, this IS NOT the place for you! Those who are ready for adventure, grab your backpack and come on over!
