Due to COVID-19 we cannot give you an exact location, but by January 2022 we are praying that international travel will be open and we can make final decisions on two locations in the world. Right now we are planning to send you to a country in Latin America and one in Africa. Your team will serve on high school campuses; developing relationships with students, speaking in classes, playing sports and sharing the Gospel. You will be leading students in bible studies to help them grow in their faith and help them become spiritual leaders on their campus.

 THE DEETS 

WHO?

A Gap Year is for 18-20 year old students. You must be 18 by the time you travel overseas. Applicants must have a surrendered and teachable heart for the Lord. It is important to have a willingness to learn how to share your faith and take opportunities to share the Gospel with those that God brings into your life. A servant’s heart and a humility to learn about and respect the differences of other cultures is important.

WHAT?

A Gap Year is a 9 month adventure that will transform your life, give you opportunities to trust God in greater ways and share the Gospel with high school students across the globe. You will be going to high school campuses to meet students and develop relationships so that you can share the Gospel and disciple those who are interested. You will meet students through speaking in classes, sharing your testimony, playing sports, sharing your life and many other things. Your team can choose to visit an orphanage, serve at a refugee camp or meet the physical needs of others. The majority of the focus will be developing relationships, sharing the Gospel and discipling those who respond.
