You will be involved in leading evangelistic English camps for high school and university-age students. The English camps are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to the youth in a relevant and relaxed environment.
During the first month you will be involved in a week of training, as well as visiting schools and traveling to different youth groups to promote and prepare for English camps and participate in a variety of youth ministry activities. At the camps you will teach conversational English, build relationships with non-Christian campers, assist in leading evening programs consisting of music, drama, games, and testimonies, and encourage youth leaders in the local churches where you will partner.
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!
