ZavCentre (ZC) often hosts missionaries, volunteers, and representatives from church and Christian organizations around the world. Besides 60 beds, we have video and audio recording studios, workshops, and the Belgian OM office.

Two thirds of a fACTOR participant’s workday will be spent doing regular or project based practical tasks like cleaning, painting, and other activities related to the upkeep of ZavCentre. The other third of the time will be dedicated to intentional discipleship and mentoring aimed at helping participants explore and dive deeper into their faith. In their first week with us, participants will be assigned a personal mentor who will walk alongside them throughout their time in Belgium. They will also join occasional day outings, enabling them to see and experience more of Belgium.

- Have a desire to serve others - Motivated to be discipled and learn about faith - Open to being challenged and to grow - Flexible with their time

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.
