Central Asia

University Outreach

Study Russian or one of the Turkic languages at a university in Central Asia. Living and learning alongside local students, you’ll make new friends, practice your language, and experience a new culture. At the same time, you'll be investing in the lives of those around you, sensitively sharing your faith. Come and impact the next generation in this strategic corner of the world.

Requirements

A vital relationship with Jesus is critical to this mission. An aptitude for languages would be a plus; eagerness and commitment to invest considerable time in language acquisition are essential. Social skills would be a great asset; gifting in evangelism, while helpful, is not a prerequisite. To enter a university, a degree/diploma or certificate is required. We're looking primarily for young people (up to 35)--singles or couples without children.
