Could your church take up the challenge of sending its own team to serve in Central Asia*next year, alongside teams from countries such as the US, Canada and Holland?
Here is a brief overview of the WAVE Team Initiative:
What is the purpose?
To share the Gospel with unreached people in Central Asia, to equip the next generation of the Church, to partner with local church leaders, and love Muslims.
When and where will this take place?
The dates are May 20th – June 10th 2019. Each church team will be approximately 30 days in Central Asia, which will include 4 days of training in Istanbul, Turkey. Each team will then go to a location in Central Asia* where People International works or has future work planned.
What will the time include?
The outreach will have an emphasis on ministering to the over 3 million refugees in the region. All the teams will meet in Istanbul, Turkey for training, prayer, worship and debriefing. The teams will also get two days to tour in Istanbul and learn about Islam. After moving to the next location, they will live with a host family, eat local food, share life in community with the team, share Christ with Muslims and be a part of a local outreach with local leaders.
Who can participate?
The aim is for churches to raise up their own teams, including a leader, of any adult age. However, due to the timings we expect many team members to be students at university or on gap years.
What will it cost?
Approximately £1,900 (including flights, accommodation and food).
