Crosslinks Gap Years are a brilliant way for young people to serve God by making Christ known overseas. In contrast to some organisations, our Gap Year Teams are led by older Christians who have some experience of leadership and Bible teaching. Leading a team is a great opportunity to test out being involved in full-time Christian work in another culture and to help lay strong foundations in the Christian lives of the young people who go.
WHEN AND WHERE?
The Gambia, Kenya or Thailand, from January to May 2018.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
The leaders' key responsibilities can be summarised as (1) Teaching, (2) Modeling, and (3) Overseeing.
(1) Teaching: Bible studies, seminars, Bible overview, teaching team members how to prepare and lead studies;
(2) Modeling: discipleship and evangelism;
(3) Overseeing: team safety, team programme, team holidays, team finances.
Leaders will also have the chance to be involved with local outreach.
IS THIS FOR ME?
Do you have experience of teaching the Bible? A love for younger Christians? A desire to see the lost come to faith in Jesus? A bit of get-up-and-go? Then please get in touch!
We are still looking for male and female team leaders for teams in January-May 2018. Click here for more information on what these teams may look like. Leading a Crosslinks Gap Year Team may work well alongside/as part of a church apprenticeship.
