Mission 2 Umag
- Short term
- Umag, Croatia
- Less than one month
WHO & WHAT // The mission trip to Umag is a journey of personal growth in faith, to develop your gifts and talents and to learn new strategies to share the Gospel, and also an opportunity to support the local church in Croatia in outreach, especially to young people. The mission trip is for anyone between the ages of 16 and 30 who believes in the Bible and wants to fulfil the great commission of Jesus Christ; sharing the Good News of the kingdom throughout the whole world. In addition, the trip is characterised by new friendships and great fun within the team. There is a lot of emphasis on relationships - to others and most importantly to God - and you will learn a lot about yourself too.
The team will be made up of 20 to 30 people of different nationalities. Language is usually not a problem: if you cannot communicate with someone, there is normally another team member who can speak the right language and take over the conversation. In addition, there are various activities such as music, sketches, face painting, etc. in which you can participate, depending on where you feel most comfortable and where your talents lie.
WHERE & WHEN // The mission will take place from August 23rd to September 1st. The first two days we'll be in Villach for teambuilding, training and preparation. Accommodation is with participants from Villach or in the local church.
Then we head to Umag, where we park the Teabus on the promenade between the old town and the hotels and holiday accommodation. There we proclaim the gospel using music, sketches and street sermons. We also offer free tea, coffee and snacks to passers-by as we engage them in conversation.
In addition, we also organise two beach volleyball tournaments that are already widely known and anticipated in the area. In Umag our accommodation is in the pastor's family home and in nearby holiday apartments.
Much of what we are doing is just starting a conversation. During the preparation time, you'll learn simple tools to engage people with the Gospel message. Sharing the gospel on the promenade, we form small teams, so you wont be alone, and we learn a lot from each other.
