Latvia

General Description

You will be assisting in leading evangelistic camps for high school and university-age students, cooperating with the local church and teams from North America. These camps are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to the youth in a relevant and relaxed environment.

During the first few weeks you will be involved in training, promotion and preparing for the camps and participating in a variety of youth ministry related activities. At the camps you will help teach conversational English or participate in performing arts (depending on the specific camp), build relationships with non-Christians through activities (sports and free time), and help lead evening programs consisting of music, drama, games, and testimonies.

You will experience a balance of evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training of national students and youth leaders. This is a high-energy ministry that requires a great love for students. Be prepared for a very busy and stretching schedule that will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
