Multiple teams are needed in the Philippines! Cross land & sea to share the Gospel in villages where spiritual darkness abounds. The people have been led astray by the Enemies lies & it's time they knew the truth of the Gospel & the Savior that came for them. In areas where the Gospel has been skewed & distorted and is now nearly unrecognizable, you will be sharing Truth with many who have never heard it told correctly. Work alongside local believers to share Biblical truth with people who may have never owned a Bible or read it for themselves. With the goal of making disciples & the hopes of planting a church, you will be a part of a greater team effort to reach the lost by going into less-accessible areas via motorbike, boat & on foot.
Large group of students will be divided into smaller ministry teams and sent to various locations which may include: Dinagat Island, Siquijor Island, Butuan City & Dapitan City.

From a “Command Center” in America, your team will share the gospel online with hundreds this summer! Partnering with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, different strategies will be developed to find those “searching for Jesus” among unreached peoples and places in the Philippines. You will also have opportunity to reach out to refugees in a nearby city and work with local Baptist associations doing children & youth mission events. Your team will be spending several hours daily connecting online with Filipinos, answering their questions and pointing them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The purpose of your team is to target, through BGEA’s online strategies, unreached people groups and pocket places of lostness in the Philippines with an estimated target population of 2.5 million people. As people respond and make a decision for Christ, you will continue a discipling relationship with them for the summer. At the end of the summer, these “persons of peace” will be introduced to the on-field workers for in person follow up. The goal is to make disciples and plant churches in places where there are none. Your team will also do hands on ministry with refugees and internationals in a nearby city. You will also partner with 3 local Baptist associations to help plan and carry out several children and youth mission events.
