The Czech Republic is one of the most atheistic countries in the world. The number of Bible-believing and Christ-following people is less than 1% of the population.

The Czech Republic is a first-world country and a member of the European Union. It has a stable economy and the lowest unemployment rate in the EU. Most Czechs enjoy a fairly comfortable standard of living.

The unfortunate side effect of living a relatively comfortable life is that most people are unaware of their need for God. Christianity is not on their radar. A person who genuinely believes in the God of the Bible and directs his/her life according to Biblical precepts is often viewed with disdain or even contempt.

A large part of your ministry here will be making connections with people.

Meeting and learning to trust a Christian is a significant step for most Czechs. You will be working in areas where Czechs do have needs and seek to meet them there. For example, since the Czech Republic is a member of the EU, proficiency in the English language is beneficial to Czech people.

You will be teaching English classes and tutoring Czechs. This gives the opportunity to build relationships. Also, most Czechs enjoy exercise and activity. Ministry centering on sports and outdoor activities gives you a chance to connect with unbelievers.

Czech Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Study the basics of the Czech language
  • Participate in English day camps for children and teenagers
  • Assist with a scouting-type camp for children and teenagers
  • Help with English language intensive weeks for adults
  • Connect with Czech teenagers/adults at a sports day camp
  • Gain exposure to the broader ministries of the Czech team in various regions of the country

Dates: 1 June – 26 July
Cost: £1,900 + Flights

This city is a blend of unreached peoples, languages, and beliefs impacting all parts of life.

In a single neighborhood you will often hear bells from the Hindu temple, smell incense from Buddhist and Taoist worshippers, and hear the Muslim call to prayer.

This location is a beautiful, equatorial tropical island.

The area is in the suburbs, with both a large outdoor market and a large superstore within 10 minutes. You will be a 45-minute flight from the capital. There’s an international airport on the island, along with several malls and other modern conveniences.

Yet, below the surface are many complexities; the world’s three largest non-Christian religions all live on top of each other and coexist in everyday life.

There is a wide array of social classes as well, ranging from:

-migrant workers from nearby countries

-local Muslims who speak little to no English

-Hindus who speak mostly the local language and also English

-very wealthy East Asian Tibetans and Buddhist business people/property owners.

There is a lot of seafood here, the climate is hot and humid year-round (33 degrees Celsius every day), and rain is often on the forecast.

Our island is considered a top-ten foodie destination in the world!

Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Prayerwalking. This is a regular part of our weekly routine. You will prayer walk different parts of the city at least two or three times a week.
  • Going out 2×2. You will learn the way that Jesus sent out His disciples in Luke 9, 10, and Matthew 10 and then go out 2×2 to practice these things several times a week.
  • Disciple making training. We will walk through the biblical principles of disciple making together as a team and with other expats and put them into practice together.

What does a Ghana mission trip look like?

Ghana is a peaceful country. It is an oasis of peace and prosperity in the midst of chaos in other parts of Africa. Yet the enemy attempts daily to overturn this.

We are not perturbed by this evil. The Lord will build His church here.

We are being faithful in sharing the gospel. We do this by house-to-house evangelism and follow-up using discipleship Bible tools, children’s ministry, teaching (English, math, science and computer classes), soccer ministry, and village church activities to strengthen small (5-10) ministry groups and churches.

Field Activities (subject to change)

  • Teaching English, science, math and computer science
  • Visiting schools, engaging with students through song, drama and stories
  • Playing soccer with children

Dates: 1 June – 10 August
Cost: £2,000 + Flights

You will serve a unique people group in a very unique context.

The Roma people (aka Gypsies), originated from India about 1000 years ago. They have been persecuted and outcast since their arrival in Europe. Despite this, they have maintained a unique culture, religious practice and identity.

In this region, Roma people live in small, isolated communities on the edges of main “Croatian” cities. As such, they are often forgotten when it comes to evangelism. They struggle with high unemployment, low income, and prejudice.

The Roma people are open to hearing about God’s Word and participating in ministry. This is in stark contrast to the mainly secularized Europe. Our goal with the Roma is not simply participation in ministry events, but to see lives that are truly changed.

As a member of our team, you will learn how to make disciples of Jesus Christ among a superstitious people who have low income. You will learn how to share the gospel while being faithful to God’s commands to help those in need.

The Roma are a people unlike any other in the world and loving them in the name of Jesus Christ is a life-changing experience! For more information, please see romachristianfellowship.org.

What does a Southeast Asia mission trip look like?

God is already working in the hearts of those living in “the ends of the earth” and are still isolated from hearing the Good News.

They are open to talking about Jesus but don’t have contact with any of His followers that can share the Gospel.

Come prayerfully and boldly seek to see the Good News reach the people of “ the ends of the earth.”

You will work with six people groups that are either unreached or unengaged with the Gospel. They are steeped in Islamic tradition and heavily influenced by strongholds of animism.

We know His promise is that people from every tribe and tongue and nation will worship before His throne. We desire to be His instruments in these people groups believing.

Through excursions into remote, underdeveloped communities, you will have the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful places on earth that very few people have ever been to before. Even more importantly, you will immerse yourself in beautiful cultures to love and serve these people in practical ways.

Come be a part of what the Holy Spirit is doing to spread the Good News.

Southeast Asia Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • See what it takes to start a gospel movement among an unreached Muslim group
  • Prayer walk through communities
  • Study language in a language school
  • Learn culture through home stays with local families
  • Trekking, snorkeling and rock climbing
  • Survey trips into unengaged communities, seeking new relationships
  • Community development (from agriculture to kids camps to clinics)
  • Help start a partnership with underprivileged women making eco-friendly jewelry

A team in the heart of the Amazon is looking for 15 new teammates. Could you be one of them?

Currently based in the town of Benjamin Constant, Brazil, this team is working with tribes and villages along the Javari and Amazon Rivers. The team operate out of the larger town along the rivers and make trips to the tribes for evangelisation, planting churches and training indigenous church leaders and missionaries. They primarily use Spanish and Portuguese for the ministry as most people in the area have a good understanding of one or both, with those they disciple as local leaders then training others in their tribal dialects.

In addition to traditional church planters, the team are looking for:

  • Accountants
  • Pilots
  • Mechanics
  • Community health workers
  • Anyone with a practical skillset

Outside the town, which has about 20,000 people, the area is very isolated. Supplies are delivered to the region by barge and occasional small planes. The team travel to the villages primarily by boat, and occasionally by plane.

If this type of work in this type of environment gets you excited, we’d love to talk with you. Get in touch with our mobilisation team today!

Xplore “was a really great opportunity for me to dedicate part of life solely to serving the Lord… and in such a fantastic and fun way! I got to meet so many wonderful people and share the gospel more times than I ever had done previously. It helped me to clarify what I wanted to do with my life and helped me to recognise and learn to use the gifts God has given me. It was a really varied experience which gave me a good feel for all the different aspects of missionary life – from the challenges to the incredibly joyful moments.”

Launch into Ministry in the Balkans

Religion

Launch Teams in the Balkans are looking for new team members who are ready to explore what God has for them in the region.

Many areas are moving to the Launch Team model of welcoming new field workers to the field. Launch Team members will spend two years learning the local language and culture while exploring ministry opportunities in the area. The hope is that teams would form within the Launch Team who would then be sent together to start new ministries in other parts of the region. During the two Launch years, Launch Team members will be fully engaged in ministry activities as well as studying language and culture.

The team’s purpose statement is: Our team exists to catalyse multiplication at all levels of disciple-making and church planting activities, and to do this in cooperation with local churches. Along the way we want to raise the standard of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, while simplifying what it means to be a church. We also seek to simplify the process of being a disciple by equipping everyone with simple, reproducible skills and methods that can be easily learned and taught to others, believing that 2 Timothy 2:2 holds some clues for multiplication of disciples and leaders.

The team welcomes people with any skills or gifting, but particular opportunities in the area currently include:

  • teaching english (or another foreign language)
  • inter-religious dialogue
  • journalism
  • performing arts (music, dance)
  • sports
  • advocating for life through a local pro-life project
  • peace and reconciliation activities
  • working with youth in local churches
  • IT
  • medical
