Middle East (StoryRunners): Storytelling

Do you share Paul’s desire “to preach the gospel where Christ was not known” (Romans 15:20)?  According to the Operation World Handbook for Prayer, the country that was the cradle of the early church now “is the largest un-evangelized country in the world,” a nation of nearly 83 million Muslims with little more than 5000 national Christians.  Recent events have increased the spiritual hunger of these people, but they are not finding answers in their religion or secularism.  They are ripe to hear the gospel!


Can you see yourself in this country’s cultural and business hub, where many people speak English, reaching people on campus, in the community, in the marketplace?  Would you like to learn a Bible storytelling approach to initiate spiritual discussions with people who are seeking truth? Do you want to grow in your ability to connect your faith and your spiritual story to the lives of the people you meet?  Would you like to gain ministry skills to take back to your campus and community?  Have you dreamed of making friends from around the world?  Can you imagine experiencing God’s love with a community of people who are following Jesus together? 


You will grow spiritually, relationally, and as a leader. You will be blessed by the hospitality and the friendliness of the local people. You will enjoy the beauty of this ancient but modern city.  You will be transformed by a vision for reaching millions of lost people.  You will help national believers reach their country with the love of Jesus.


Where do you want to spend the first month of your summer?


The support goal and dates will be finalized by February 1.  (Dates may shift by 2-3 days.)
