Seeing, Serving and Being the Church
James Chen, a 3rd year Arts student, said this of his mission experience in 2012:
Going to a church in Mascot was a humbling experience. It helped me reexamine what I believed church was about. It was a combination of factors: working as a young first year with a diverse and loving team, doing walkup evangelism in an area of Sydney I had never been in, teaching the youth group, and getting to to pick the minister’s brain about serving his church. The biggest influence was the relationship I developed with the people I stayed with. Over several days and many conversations (sometimes funny, sometimes teary, always edifying) they shared their experience of walking with Jesus for several decades. I can’t wait to see what God is doing as I serve on another EU Summer Mission this year.
Between November 23rd and December 15th about 120 students will head to a wide variety of locations, including Adelaide, Narrabri, the ACT and various churches across Sydney. Please join with us in praying that students will learn from the churches they visit, that the churches would be encouraged, and that together they might witness faithfully to the gospel of Jesus Christ in their local area.
