Ghana Summer Mission with Cru & IJM
The Ghana summer mission is a unique collaboration with Cru and International Justice Mission (IJM). This mission has a dual focus of working with Cru in Ghana (called the Great Commission Movement) as they trust God to work in communities and on campus in the Tamale area, and to assist IJM in their work to end child slavery in the fishing industry on Lake Volta. The Great Commission Movement responsibilities will be centered on win, build, and send in the campus ministry and through Jesus Film community outreach. The IJM responsibilities will be assisting in some of their key aftercare centers through play, education, and helping children grow in their faith. Because of the unique nature of this shared partnership, the application for this project is more rigorous than normal. Applicants must be approved by both Cru and IJM and go through background checks and specific training to work with vulnerable children. This internship requires spiritual and emotional maturity to navigate the complexity of the work and the partnership relationships.
