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
  • Medical ministry
  • House to house evangelism
  • Children’s ministry
  • Strengthening and encouraging village churches

Summer Trip: Horn Team

Duration

Religion
Muslim

Dates: 1 June – 10 August
Cost: £2,300 + Flights

Islam holds deep roots among this proud people.

There are nearly 15 million people in east Africa, yet not a single mature church. But we trust God is moving and preparing for a great harvest. Having experienced war for over 20 years, these people are desperate for peace. Christ is the Prince of Peace who brings light and life into dark places. Yet how will they ever know unless someone goes and shares this great news?

Your focus will be teaching intermediate/advanced English to those who are in the process of moving to America or another western country.

From relationships formed within the school and in the neighborhood, you will have many opportunities to share about your own life and faith. This may be over a cup of tea, a game of chess, a meal of camel meat and pasta, a pick-up game of soccer, getting henna or simply relaxing together in the living room. Previous Edgers have been amazed to find that they were the first ever to share the love of Christ with a local friend.

We are praying that you may help us find people whom the Spirit is already working in towards faith. The long-term team can then follow up and continue your work long after you leave.

While the majority of your stay will be in an urban environment, you may also take side trips into the rural areas to visit other work being done. Our goal is to open your eyes to the many opportunities and possibilities for long-term work in the area.

You will also spend time learning some language and more about the culture.

Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Language and cultural study
  • Prayer-walking
  • Teaching English
  • Intentional relationship building in any way possible

Join a Pioneers field team who are working to conserve threatened areas and educate West Africans about Creation Care.

Eden Creation Care Initiative (EDEN) is a faith-based, non-profit, conservation organisation closely linked to Pioneers field workers that helps communities protect areas important for their biodiversity, through educational programmes and scientific research. They are currently running two conservation projects:

Rennajj Fish Farm is a comparatively small area of well demarcated privately owned land, covering 80 hectares. It is on the fringes of the Jos metropolis, and suburban development is currently proceeding close to about half of the farm perimeter. The most significant habitat there is wetland. It regularly holds numerous species of herons and waders, whilst gulls, terns and Ospreys are occasional visitors. Appropriate management and protection of the area could potentially increase species diversity considerably.

Mushere Forest (Dulu area of Kadim in Mushereland) has a total area of 40-50 square kilometers. The aim of this project is to provide effective protection for one of Northern Nigeria’s most severely threatened habitats: forest. The area has been selected because damage to the forest is less severe than in many other areas, and difficulty of access makes protection more feasible than elsewhere.

The team are looking for a self-starting, enthusiastic teammate to help run these programmes on a mid- to long-term basis. No professional qualifications are necessary; just a willingness to learn, a heart to serve and a love for God’s natural world.
