FirstServe Discipleship & Mission Programme
Designed for gap years (with shorter time periods available), you will get the chance to be properly introduced to mission, undertake a local church placement as well as serve overseas to really inspire you to think and see beyond everyday life.
For more information visit the FirstServe website where you can discover more about the opportunities and take the first step towards your mission journey.
“FirstServe has taught me that the call of missions is to love Jesus in such a way that you don’t need a specific event or place to witness but that from a heart desiring to see people saved and coming to the knowledge of God’s love. We live every single moment committed to being witnesses of the Gospel and its incredible and transforming power.” – Ella Maffey
GLO teams give you the opportunity to experience mission first-hand for up to two weeks at a time. You will work alongside local missionaries and church workers to engage with the local community and share the Good News. Each team location is unique and the team’s involvement will reflect the needs of that particular situation. Typical activities may include children’s clubs, literature distribution, church participation, international evenings and much more.
“My experiences with GLO teams has shown me how much God loves this world. How amazing it is to see all different nationalities united through our Lord Jesus Christ. I loved meeting other members of God’s family and listening to how the Lord Jesus changed their lives. It is simply amazing to be immersed in His work for a week. It brings more blessings than anything else to be about my Father’s business.” – Emma
