New Year; new mission

By Lauren, EDGE 2017 co-ordinator

Have you made any New Year resolutions? Why not add “step out in faith” to your list?

This year provides another opportunity to grow deeper in relationship with God; it’s also another opportunity to allow Him to shape you.

So why not, this year, spend a couple of weeks witnessing how God is moving in the Arab world through one of our short-term mission trips (which we call EDGE teams)!


Be part of an outreach team

Here are 3 reasons why it’s worth considering being part of one of our teams:

  • Experience Cross-Cultural Ministry
  • Reach Unreached People Groups
  • Explore Long Term Possibilities

Read below for a general idea of this year’s locations, but get in touch if you’d like specifics!
