What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
With your gear, tents, and team, you will haul across the beautiful European continent and engage in ministry in some of Europe’s largest and most unique cities. Traveling by coach (which is really a huge deluxe bus), you will begin your adventurous summer in London before moving on to Belgium, Germany, and a peaceful lakeside village in Austria.
Next stop on the adventure: the former communist Bloc countries of Slovenia and Croatia. You’ll then head west again, and after visiting several cities throughout northern Italy, you and your teammates will have a chance to catch your breath and relax in the beautiful mountain valley of Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.
Desire a little culture? Your final destination will be Paris, France, where you’ll mix street ministry with cultural immersion; sample a crêpe in the Saint-Michel district, enjoy a view from the Eiffel Tower, or maybe say hello to the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Experience the adventure that is Europe as you impact the crowds for Christ!
Ministry—Many are surprised to learn that while Europe boasts some of the most amazing and beautiful churches in the world, only 2% of the population attend church on a regular basis. Perhaps even more surprising, Europe is actually considered to be one of the least evangelized continents in the world. Religion was something for the past and there’s little room for it now in modernity. It is because of this that we partner with local and established churches and organizations to ensure there is a place for follow-up and maximized impact in the little time we spend in each country. On the Western Europe Trip you will use dance, drama, puppets, community service, and intentional question surveys to engage people of all different faith backgrounds (i.e. atheists, agnostics, Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, and everything in between) in conversations about Christ, who He is, and what He has to offer the world. You’ll find that most Europeans love engaging in conversation and are quite open to asking hard questions and exploring new thoughts.
Adventure—The Western Europe mission trip is the very definition of adventure. You will travel, explore, discover, take risks, and engage. Imagine, in a few short months, you could be on a ferry crossing the English Channel with the White Cliffs of Dover behind you and France emerging on the horizon, all while enjoying a delicious cappuccino from the ferry’s onboard café. Just a few days later, you could be climbing in the Swiss Alps, filling up your Nalgene from a waterfall, and stopping for a lunch of Swiss chocolate and fresh bread. As you camp throughout Europe you’ll have the opportunity to make friends with people from all over the world. Experience the thrill of traveling on the Autobahn in Germany, stroll past historic cafes in Paris, and take a spin on the London Eye (a giant ferris wheel situated right on the famed Thames River). Imagine sharing Christ in not one but many of your dream destinations. Make sure you have a memory card big enough to capture the adventure Europe has for you.
Experience Culture—If you haven’t already read all the other descriptions above, go back! You will find that this mission trip is unique. Your adventure across multiple countries, your stories of ministry, and the food you’ll eat will create a mosaic of experience that will live in you far beyond the summer. Just to name a few, zigzagging across Western Europe you will encounter things like:
Buckingham Palace in London
The coliseum in Pula, Croatia (an ancient Roman port)
A small village in the Swiss/German Alps of Switzerland and their majestic mountains
Crêpes at the Eiffel Tower (nutella is my personal favorite!)
The beauty of Notre Dame (minus the cool, but slightly creepy, hunchback)
Winston Churchhill’s Cabinet Rooms (he’s the British guy with the cigar from WW2)
Tea and biscuits in London
Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals
Your ministry on EuroQuest will be defined and organized by the local pastors, church members, ministry directors, and missionaries who are our ministry partners.
