Ministering on the Front Lines of the Christian Missionary Campaign
This small team will work with a group of Reformed missionaries from the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. This mission will be the longest endeavor by RP Missions this summer and team members will need to be able to be a part of this trip for its full duration. This mission will take place in a much more remote area of the world than other trips listed on this page, and those who would go should have had cross-cultural mission experience in the past and must demonstrate maturity in the faith and exhibit be prepared to operate in an area without all the creature comforts we enjoy here. This team will help with Bible storytelling, helping with outreach efforts, and will serve the missionaries onsite to help them with their efforts to reach the people of Uganda with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Participants will need to plan to spend time in the spring preparing for this mission and will be expected to be in contact with their team leader on a weekly basis as they prepare.
