REACH in the UK (Sep 2024)

REACH UK equips participants with the essential skills, knowledge and experience needed to engage in cross-cultural missions and empowers them to be impactful and intentional ambassadors of Jesus Christ wherever He calls them to serve.

About

REACH UK is a 5-month cross-cultural mission training experience. It’s a combination of classroom teachings and outreach to give participants a taste of different mission contexts. It aims at equipping and inspiring participants for effective cross-cultural mission. Through this training, participants learn to embody Christ's love, serve others selflessly, and share the gospel in culturally relevant ways. It's not just about spreading the gospel but facilitating genuine transformation both for participants and the communities they serve; hence embodying the great Commission's call to make disciples of all nations. During this time, participants will be trained and mentored while immersed in cross-cultural community and ministry.
