Team of the Week: Tip of the Spear

GO into a new area to build relationships and give a verbal witness while demonstrating a life witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Be a bringer of light this summer!

The team will work a new region that has very little opportunity to hear the Gospel. This country is less than 1% evangelical Christians. There are large areas and communities without a credible Gospel witness. Your team will be sent into this area to build relationships and give a verbal witness as well as demonstrate a life witness. This country doesn't allow evangelism, missions trips or missionaries. You will be tourists seeking to understand the culture and enjoy the natural beauty. You will operate very independently from long term personnel for security reasons. You will be gathering data for long-term personnel and national partners about the local communities and places of "light" and "darkness," names of seekers and believers, and making an assessment of the comnunities receptivity to the Gospel.
