Wales Festival Team

Opportunity Overview

TEAM SIZE: 4 students
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 project will bring participants to the most important annual Welsh cultural event, which draws 150,000+ visitors each year and has a 1000-year history. Though the event attracts Welsh-speakers (and visitors) of all ages, there is a special area with events designed specifically for young people (16-30-years-old). This includes concerts of various genre and other parties and events. The young people stay in a field in tents (camping). The atmosphere is very much like a Rock-music festival (a bit of a Woodstock feel). This team will befriend their peers around them. Additionally, this Team will assist Welsh-speaking Evangelicals with their various ministries to the young people, The assignment will begin with orientation/training, followed by two weeks of super intensive Welsh language instruction.

This team is for mature students.
