Are you tired of your old shoes, weary of a non-committed, ho-hum type of summer with no real umph to it? Global Missions Division, United Pentecostal Church International unveils a reason to leave the shoes behind and step into a life-changing course of action. Come along. . . adventure awaits!
Next Steps, under the auspices of the Associates In Missions program, offers global assignments for the summer months of June and July. Hands-on, personal involvement is mandated. You will work hand in hand with the missionary on location, helping him reach out to extend the gospel message.
You may teach home Bible studies, teach in the portable Bible schools, teach Sunday school, hand out tracts, print a million tracts . . . or you may help the Missionary Kids with their schoolwork. Others will dip into paint cans, build churches, clean Bible schools and church buildings. Still some will use their expertise in the office, setting up files and stroking the computer keyboards.
An unforgettable missions immersion summer awaits the Next Steps group. First, an intense three-week training period, then hands-on action and fulltime involvement in overseas ministry captures every hour of the day for the remainder of the trip. What's at stake? A depth of personal gratification by presenting hope and life in Jesus to a nation of people seeking spiritual fulfillment in life. You can make a difference!
