In China you’ll be partnering with local missionaries and ministering in public high schools. You’ll visit the homes of Chinese students, perform skits, play volleyball, and compete in killer basketball matches! It’s a fun, varied, activity-based program designed specifically to build relationships and spark questions. We know it sounds harsh, but part of your ministry will be hanging out with Chinese students, eating the best food you’ve ever tasted, and taking it deeper to satisfy their curiosity about Jesus. Not only that, you’ll get to see some amazing historical sites, like the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. Not many people get to share the message of Jesus in an area of the world that is typically closed off to it. Will you be the one to bring it there?

The beautiful mountain towns of Costa Rica are home to some of the happiest, friendliest people on earth. This summer, you will partner with Pastor Alfonso and his youth group in the coffee village of Cachi, traveling to surrounding towns and building relationships. On any given afternoon you may find yourself in a “Tico’s” kitchen drinking amazing coffee or serving the owners of a local bakery (and of course, eating their treats!).

You will use dramas, dances, puppets, and soccer to catch the Ticos’ attention and share Christ with them. Futból (American soccer) is a fantastic way to get to know the Ticos, because they live and breathe the sport. Full-field games by day and highly competitive, fast, indoor futból matches by night offer many opportunities to experience life the way they live it. After the games, you’ll invite the team and fans (yes, there will be fans!) back to the church for some hot chocolate and relationship building! Both types of ministry–performances and soccer–make for an intense, adventurous summer. Every day is something entirely new!

In Ireland you will get the opportunity to reach out to students on the streets of the Northern Ireland city of Londonderry and the coastal village of Skerries. The Irish youth have been worn down by years of conflict between Catholics and Protestants and are skeptical of anything that smacks of religion. Your role is crucial…help them understand and experience a genuine, loving relationship with Christ. In cities that boast the best fish ‘n chips in the world are students who are longing for a undefiled representation of true religion. The team will minister on the streets, malls and even the beaches! You’ll also carry the ministry to the parks, where you’ll use soccer, basketball, and even baseball as a way of entering into their world. And hey, ever thought about hitting the surf? Our Irish contacts want the team to facilitate a surf camp on the south coast. Sure, it may be cold water…but dude, it’s a surf camp! The Irish have lived under the lie that religion separates. You can bring the Truth that Christ not only heals, but unifies.

If you’re going on a mission trip, don’t you want to be where the action is? And in Glasgow, the action isn’t in the nice leafy suburbs! On the Scotland team you’ll be working in the gritty neighborhood of Govanhill, on the south side of Glasgow’s city centre. You’ll be working alongside the folks at Victoria Church to reach out to an area filled with immigrants. We’ll partner with them using youth clubs, vbs, and street ministry to reach out to the area’s Roma Gypsies, Asians, Slovaks, and Poles. Did we mention the Scottish Highlands? Did we mention the Scottish Highlands? You’ll take a break from your ministry and have a chance to tour and hike in the mountains that surround Loc Lomond, which are simply breathtaking! Castles, kilts, and the wild beauty of the mountains…Scotland IS adventure. Next, you’ll head south to London, where you will work alongside Clapham Church, where you will continue to use the ministry skills you honed on the streets of Glasgow. London Bridge, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace are just a few of the sites you’ll see as you explore this amazing city!

God will break your heart as you’re exposed to the tragic living conditions that define Sierra Leone. Many are forced to live in places like the slums of Kroo Bay and Falcon Bridge. You’ll be partnering with local believers to reach out in schools, detention centers, prisons and hospitals. Your ministry will also take you out of the city as you hike out to “the bush” to share Christ in primitive villages. You’ll also live in and minister alongside those in Jonathan’s House, an orphanage in the city of Bo. Play soccer with incarcerated young people, share your faith story, help meet serious physical needs, and hike from hut to hut – These are just a few of the ways for you to meet the wonderful people of Sierra Leone and offer hope to those who have no hope. We’ll be honest…Sierra Leone is not for the faint of heart. It rips on your emotions. But there are few places where God will use you in such an amazing, relevant, unique, intimate, and powerful way!

It all starts in Normandy, France; from there you’ll move on to Brugge, Belgium, Frickenhausen, Germany, and the peaceful lakeside town of Zell Am See, Austria. Next stop: the former communist Eastern Bloc city of Pula, Croatia. After that, you’ll dip down for a time of ministry in Verona, Italy. Sound tiring? How about a few days in the majestic mountain valley of Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland (don’t forget your hiking boots)! Desire a little culture? EQ’s next destination is the famous Paris, France, where you’ll mix street ministry with some cultural immersion; maybe sample a crepe in the Saint- Michel district, enjoy a view from the Eiffel Tower, or say hi to the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Last stop before you head home London, England. Have a cup of tea, debrief the summer and see all that God has done in and through you. Many people dream of backpacking through Europe, but few have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of its people. Are you up to the challenge?

Want to use your talents and skill in soccer to share the Gospel? In Costa Rica, the locals live and breathe soccer or futból, as they call it. The center of every town is a soccer field, and there are always people nearby ready to kick a ball around. The people are highly competitive, talented players; yet they love getting to know Americans. So soccer is the perfect way to connect!

Full-field games by day and highly competitive, fast, indoor games by night offer many opportunities to experience life the way the locals live it. After the evening games, you'll invite teams and fans back to the church for some hot chocolate and relationship building!

What a great opportunity to play the sport you love and learn how to use it as a ministry tool while in the mountains of Costa Rica!

*The Costa Rica trip is for both those who play soccer and those who don't. The evening games and tournaments are reserved for players with previous, competitive soccer experience (such as a varsity or club teams). If you don't play soccer, you can still come check out more information on the Costa Rica Trip Page! We use drama, dance, soccer, and puppets to establish relationships with the people to share the Gospel. If you have questions about the soccer portion of the trip, please email the Trip Leader Brian Meaden at: brianmeaden@reignministries.org
