Compassion - Justice

There are people all over the world that are dying unjustly. In some countries in Africa, over 35% of the population has AIDS or HIV. On streets in cities all across the globe thousands of children are at risk, roaming the streets and are abused and neglected. Human trafficking and slavery is more common today than during the civil war and millions are refugees, without home and without a country. Does God have a plan to reach these people? Does God have a plan to bring Hope to the hopeless? You bet he does. You are his plan. Being a Goer through the compassion and justice track will give you the opportunity to invest a season of your life on the front lines of these issues, actually being Christ’s hands and feet to those in the world who need to feel Christ’s touch most.

Anti-Human Trafficking Worker

Today's global landscape of political unrest, social upheaval, and astounding levels of poverty in developing and developed countries alike, leaves a staggering number of women vulnerable to sexual slavery. An estimated 2.5 million people are captured in the bonds of human trafficking at any given moment, including 1.2 million children. The UN Office on Drugs and Crime note that people trafficking is the fastest growing means by which people are enslaved, the fastest growing international crime, and one of the largest sources of income for organized crime.

Caring for Orphans

This team serves in a city in China of 8 million people. China's one-child policy, the pressure to provide for his/her parents in their old age, and a worldview that doesn't see every life as valuable has led to an orphan crisis, especially for those born with special needs. Furthermore, families that do keep their children with disabilities have very little services to care for and assist them.

Children & Family Ministry Worker

Viento Fresco is a faith-based, non-profit children's center located in a hard-hit sector of Medellin, Colombia, serving approximately 200 children and their families daily from Monday through Friday. Our clients are the poor, the displaced (many from other regions of Colombia, or Venezuela), the homeless, drug addicts, prostitutes, gang members, and their children. For years the neighborhood of Viento Fresco has been famous for the works of the enemy, specifically drugs, prostitution and witchcraft.

Islamic Outreach & Community Service

Daily headlines cover the immigration of Muslims to Europe, and it is on the forefront of European politics and society. Huge numbers of Muslim immigrants now call the capital cities of Europe home, and Berlin is no exception. They face the challenges of forging a new start for their families in the midst of resistance and fear from many European-born citizens. Immigrants from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds are the front lines of justice and peace in Europe.

Refugee Ministry

Magnificent church buildings occupy places of prominence all throughout the city of Budapest. The central location of church buildings in the major squares of the city is reminiscent of an era in which the institution of the church played a significant role in the life of the city, regularly exerting its influence over many aspects of daily life. But times have changed, and the Budapest of today bears the scars of a godless, communist past while ushering in the reality of a post-Christian present.

Urban Advocate to the Margins

Thailand is affectionately known as the land of smiles. The population of Bangkok is anywhere from 9 million to 14 million on a daily basis and this urban center is the influencing force for education, economy and culture. At the same time, it is a city known for brokenness. Large concentrations of men and women are exploited for the sex industry. Impoverished families are stuck fighting for survival each day. The desire for money, power, and status keep many dissatisfied. While the gospel came to Thailand over 180 years ago, the country is still less than 1% evangelical.

Yemeni Refugee Advocate & Arabic Language Study

As the heart of this Northeast African nation, this city is a vibrant, exhilarating, exotic, fascinating, and welcoming place. Home to some of the most ancient civilizations on earth, this city is punctuated by incredible, half-forgotten (and other, more famous) monuments of the past. One force above all others, however, has shaped this city and nation more than anything else in the last thousand years -- the religion of Islam. As the cries for change have echoed across the Arab world, the discontent lying under the surface in this society has become quite evident.
