Sweden: TEI 2023 Spring Semester Mission

Come join us for a unique opportunity to invest your Spring semester serving with The Every Initiative, a pioneering ministry of Cru, sharing the Gospel with university students and refugees alongside local churches currently in two cities in Sweden, Gothenburg and Örebro.

During the semester, you would have the opportunity to serve alongside our established teams in Sweden in:

• Initiative evangelism on university campuses and in immigrant contexts

• Ongoing relational evangelism with non-Christian Swedish and immigrant friends

• Plan and host ministry outreach events

• Be assigned a ministry project to carry out over the course of the three months in-country

• Plug-in to existing ongoing ministry opportunities among students and refugees

• Disciple believers both from secular and Muslim backgrounds

This project runs from January-May 2023 and would be an ideal opportunity for those who are wanting to take a gap semester to minister internationally or for those who are considering international missions as a long-term career and wanting to take a semester to get "hands on" experience.

Both of our teams have recently been called upon by the local church in Sweden to help as new refugees from the conflict in Ukraine are arriving in Sweden. We anticipate that working with these displaced refugees will continue to be a focus during the coming Spring. 

In a context where we are often a Swede or refugee’s first-ever contact with the Gospel, more boots on the ground for an extended period of time means more people will be introduced to Jesus. More spiritually interested immigrants and university students will be able to have second, third, and fourth conversations with the people who believe the true Gospel. More church members will be able to be befriended and challenged to take the next steps in their walks with Jesus.

The program will begin with a short briefing time in the United States as well as evangelism training before leaving for Sweden. 

We hope that you would consider joining us this coming Spring in reaching college students and refugees in Sweden in conjunction with the Swedish local church.
