Ministry Details
This could be the lockdown year. The year when everything was cancelled. The year when you couldn’t leave home and fully experience university or travels. A lost year. Or it could be a year of unexpected opportunity. A year to be surprised about what God could do in and through you.

** Learn about a missional lifestyle, the uniqueness of Jesus, and the need for the gospel amongst the nations.
** Engage in online study as well as socially-distanced classrooms, with experienced cross-cultural workers discipling and mentoring you.
** Enjoy some practical team work around our campus, perhaps the opportunity to learn a new skill
** Experience living together with others and organising a household life!
** As restrictions are lifted, engage in UK-based outreach adventures (twice each block, 6 times through the year) and experience overseas missions trips (once each block with 3 in the year)

Approximately 25% training and 75% practical missions.
