Scotland Sports & Backpacking Team 2

- Linguæ Christi
GENDER: No preference
Rather than brief, transactional encounters, we aim to use common interests – like the arts and sports – to drive connections with people. Through prayer, hospitality, service, our words, and just hanging out, we aim to share the fullness of the Gospel and God’s love for the world. We value authentic relationships as the medium for spiritual conversations and our goal is introducing people to Jesus. Because of the Post-Christian nature of Europe, this process is outward-focused, creative, relational and generally much more time-intensive than many other parts of the world.
This team will be staying in a specifically Gaelic-speaking area to learn about the language and culture while making friendships with Gaelic speakers. They will be staying in youth hostels, campgrounds, or other arrangements. Through common interests in the sports, backpacking and the outdoors, this team will build relationships and foster spiritual conversations with Gaelic speakers of similar interests.
This team is ideal for people with a background or interest in team sports, hiking and/or water sports who can use these interests and talents as a natural connection point with Gaelic speakers. This is a very independent project. Those who require a great deal of direct supervision or instruction should not consider this assignment.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS (before arrival on-field): English
