London is the largest city in Western Europe and one of the most multicultural cities in the world. There are people from almost every language and every tongue gathered in one place, which makes the city a great place for evangelism. As we go out to share the gospel, we will meet people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds. It is a great opportunity to learn how to share the Gospel with different religious backgrounds. You will partner with the Turkish church, and have opportunity to connect with believers, working alongside them in their outreach.

* You will have training classes in various aspects of sharing your faith. * You will be involved in street evangelism, distributing literature as you meet and talk with people. * You will be involved in park evangelism. * You will be joining our Turkish Easter celebration. * You will be involved in children’s ministry. * There are possibilities to use art, drama, dancing, music, singing etc. * We will have lots of fun! The programme will aim to be varied and related to children, teenagers and adults.

We would love to see you to use any gifts that you might have, if you have a specific gifting such as, music, dance, art, sports please let us know when you apply. That will help us to know how to encourage and equip you to use your gifts. You must be able to hold a simple conversation in English. Previous experience in ministry is not required as orientation and training will be given.

The Luke 24 Journey is a personal journey within a team setup. We focus on hearing God’s voice, live by faith and obedience. As we travel through the mountains or the desert there may be an opportunity to minister to or serve people. The Luke 24 journey is unique in the sense that it doesn’t have a fixed or planned program beforehand. As we journey together we ask and trust God to guide us in our daily walk with him. Our desire through the Luke 24 Journey is that people would receive or confirm a clear calling and be commissioned to be Disciple Makers wherever they may find themselves in the future.
