What is Venture?
AWM-Pioneers (Arab World Ministry of Pioneers) puts together tailor-made trips for individuals, couples and families seeking to explore cross-cultural ministry in a specific context. We call these short-term trips, Venture placements.
– Venture is about preparing you to play your role in God’s global story
– Placements vary from two months to two years and are tailor-made
– Venture allows you to walk alongside long-termers as they step out in faith
– Experience the joys and realities of cross-cultural ministry
– Return equipped to make a bigger impact
How Is A Venture Placement Put Together?
- in partnership with the local church,
- by discerning what God is already doing in you
- and in conversation with the overseas ministry team.
Once we discover more of how God is leading you, evaluate your skills and expectations, we are better able to begin sketching a tailor-made trip for you.
