Summer Teams

 

SUMMER TEAMS 2017

DESCRIPTION OF SUMMER TEAM EXPERIENCE: Summer Teams are four weeks of intense fun and loving God! Your team of about 8 young men and ladies (ages 18 and up) will arrive at a training facility in Calgary, AB, Canada on August 2 and begin a 7-day training period. During this time you will spend time in worship, studying God's purposes for your life in His Word, learning about functioning as a team, getting to know your new team mates, preparing 2 ministry programs (one for youth and one for children) using the arts. You will learn to tell your salvation story effectively, learn some excellent tools in the arts (music, instruments, illusions, drime, chalkart, dance, etc) and grow in your dependance on God. CHECK OUT OUR ACTION VENTURES FACEBOOK SITE FOR MORE CURRENT INFORMATION, STORIES, VIDEOS AND PHOTOS!

Your team will then travel to your ministry location for about 3 weeks to serve with an experienced ministry host. You can read more details about your specific overseas ministry below. After your overseas ministry your team will go through 3 days of debriefing the experience, integrating the lessons learned and celebrating what God did with a Farewell Service in a local church.

August 2017 Summer Team: We are limiting this next years team to one described below. Due to fluctuations in dollar value and travel the support required is subject to change.  Please contact us for further information.
