While God is certainly working all across America, his mission is truly global in nature. Students have an incredible opportunity to proclaim the gospel to all nations by serving for two years with Summit international church planters and strategic partnerships. Locations may include:
Team Serbia uses filters of broad gospel sowing, English classes, and cultural exchange events to quickly identify lost Serbs who are open to the gospel. Using discipleship groups, they equip and develop new believers into future leaders for the church in Serbia. There is a solid church plant named Koinonia, and they pray for the multiplication of this church to happen with national partners who can assume leadership roles within the church. They are seeking to train national believers in evangelism methods and emphasizing solid, biblical discipleship for those new to the faith. Their goal is to make disciples who make disciples!
Their team is growing, and students have a place in it as disciples who makes disciples. They have found that students in Serbia are open to the gospel, and they want to engage them with people closer to their age and life stage. Team Serbia needs help to share the gospel with students and train those who come to faith to be disciples and make disciples. Students can expect to teach some English classes as part of their service there, and various classes, events, and service opportunities can be tailored to students’ skills and abilities. This is a unique opportunity to come and build on the work Summit College students have established in Belgrade.
Are you interested in seeing God transform one of the most strategic cities in Africa? This team will focus on inner city Johannesburg, South Africa, and partner with local church planters to train, equip, resource, and assist them in planting reproducing churches in the city. Johannesburg is home to representatives from at least 40 percent of the countries on the World Watch List, which lists the 50 worst countries for Christian persecution. There are 300 languages spoken in and around “Joburg” every day and 2 million refugees living in abandoned buildings downtown. However, Joburg is also Africa’s only world-class city. According to Tim Keller, it is “the most important city on the continent.” The opportunities to share the gospel in Joburg are almost unlimited. This team will be working out of Braamfontein to pray, share the gospel, and disciple new believers.
New York City
God has brought the nations to New York City, with more than 4.5 million people from unreached people groups calling the city home. God is using Global Gates to reach these communities with the gospel, disciple them, and then empower them to reach their own people with the gospel. This team will learn the language, be mentored by a long-term missionary, develop a church planting strategy, and implement it among a South Asian Muslim, Sikh, or Hindu people group.
South Asia, West Coast
This is a unique opportunity to move to one of the most influential global cities in South Asia to work among business professionals, millennials or college students, unreached people groups, and the “least of these” in the slums or red-light districts. The South Asia team of students, professionals, and retirees serves in this global city in those strategic areas of ministry. Whether you want to get a job in the heart of the business district, work at Starbucks, or raise your own support, this city is a great option for you to do what you do well for the glory of God and do it somewhere strategic for the mission of God!
