Our mission team is only a few days away from leaving, and they couldn’t be more excited to go.
Plans have been finalized, tickets have been purchased, messages have been prepared – the only thing remaining is for the team to pack up and go.
This is going to be a powerful trip for all involved.
The team has worked closely with our partners in Czech to build on the successes of past trips and provide genuine opportunities for young people to encounter Christ.
Our trip will consist of:
- Multiple Invitations: where our whole team will be in the Svibice neighborhood, interacting with young people and inviting them to come to the outreaches;
- Afternoon Workshops: where young people will engage in fashion, sports, or music and drama, and build relationship with our American and Czech team members.
- Evening Youth Group Services: where young people will hear the gospel preached in fun and creative ways, including:
- Question and Answer Night – an evening where young people will be encouraged to ask questions about faith, God, and Christianity;
- Exit Klub – This weekly group hosted by the Czech team is targeted towards new believers and those who have yet to make the decision to follow Christ. Young people will be challenged to stand firm in their faith in the face of persecution;
- Removing Your Masks – Young people will each be given a mask as an American team member shares how the world pushes us to wear masks, and how Christ helps us take them off;
- Workshop Showcase: where the youth involved in the workshops will showcase what they did, followed by a message and invitation to follow Christ given by an American team member;
Our team will also help lead sessions for KristFest – a nationwide youth convention, including:
- Opening Session, led by Ignite President Jason Vana, challenging Christian youth that Revival Starts Within;
- Study Your Bible Workshop, led by Ignite Leadership Coach and Board Member Ian Smith, training youth how to actively engage in the biblical text;
- Prayer and Prophetic Workshop, led by Jason Vana, training youth how to pray and prophesy over others;
- Media Workshop, led by team member Katie Rose, exploring how all forms of media shape one’s perception of oneself;
- Effect of the Father, led by Jason Vana, where youth will uncover how their relationship with their earthly father shapes how they see their heavenly Father.
We know God is going to do something amazing both in and through our mission team during their time in Czech.
