While God is certainly working all across America, God’s mission is truly global in nature. Students have an incredible opportunity to proclaim the gospel to all nations through serving for two years in an international context with Summit Church Planters and Summit strategic partnerships.
Strategy: We evangelize, we start groups/churches, and we train national leaders. Team Serbia is using filters of broad gospel sowing, English classes, and cultural exchange events to quickly identify lost Serbs who are open to the gospel. Using discipleship groups, we equip and develop new believers into future leaders for the Church in Serbia. There is a solid church plant named Koinonia, and we pray for the multiplication of this church to happen with national partners who can assume leadership roles within the church. We are seeking to train national believers in evangelism methods and emphasizing solid, biblical discipleship for those new to the faith. Our prayer is that we will make disciples who make disciples!
Your place in the mission: Our team is growing, and you have a place in it as a disciple who makes disciples. We have found that, as a group, students in Serbia are more open to the gospel. Thus, we want to engage students with people closer to their age and life stage. Our team needs your help to share the gospel with students and train those who come to faith to be disciples and make disciples. You can expect to teach some English classes as part of your service here. We also offer various other classes, events, and team service opportunities, and those can be tailored to your skills and abilities. We have been blessed to have Summit students join us in Belgrade, and you have a unique opportunity to come and build on the work they have established!
Are you interested in seeing God transform one of the most strategic cities in Africa? This team will focus on inner city Johannesburg, South Africa, partnering with local church planters to train, equip, resource, and assist them in planting reproducing churches in the city. Johannesburg is home to representatives from at least 40 percent of the countries on the World Watch List (which lists the 50 worst countries for Christian persecution). There are 300 languages spoken in and around Joburg every day and 2 million refugees living in abandoned buildings downtown. However, Joburg is also Africa’s only world-class city. According to Tim Keller, it is “the most important city on the continent.” The opportunities to share the gospel in Joburg are almost unlimited. This team will be working out of Braamfontein to pray, share the gospel, and disciple new believers.
God has brought the nations to New York City, with more than 4.5 million people from unreached people groups who call the city home. God is using Global Gates to reach these communities with the gospel, disciple them, and then empower them to reach their own people with the gospel. Join this four to six-member team from Summit to engage a South Asian Muslim, Sikh, or Hindu people group. You will learn the language, be mentored by a long-term missionary, develop a church planting strategy, and implement it among your people group.
South Asia, West Coast
Are you interested in moving to one of the most influential global cities in South Asia to work among business professionals, millennials or college students, unreached people groups, or the “least of these” in the slums or red-light districts? Summit is putting together a team of students, professionals, and retirees to go and serve in this global city in those strategic areas of ministry. Whether you want to get a job in the heart of the business district, work at Starbucks, or raise your own support, this city could be a great option for you to “do what you do well for the glory of God and do it somewhere strategic for the mission of God!”
