You will be working as part of a cross-cultural team in partnership with local village churches and church plants. This outreach will involve organizing day camps for children, visiting elderly and families in their homes, and possibly helping practically where needed.

For coordinating the children's camps, your team will lead games, songs, Bible stories and crafts. When visiting people in their homes, you will have the opportunity to listen to their stories, share testimonies, give food parcels, and offer a Bible and prayer. Your team may be involved in coordinating a youth meeting and leading a church service.

Do you have a heart for children and elderly? Do you want to be challenged in your faith and experience God in a new way through cross-cultural ministry? Do you want to share the Gospel to the least reached, serve in a practical way and encourage local churches and believers? Come and join us!

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.
Thousands of international tourists come to Switzerland during the summer, including many Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula. Many have never had the opportunity to personally meet a Jesus follower or to hear the Gospel in their home country. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Switzerland to share God`s love with the Arabs from the Arab Peninsula.
