What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Would you like to meet people at the level of their passion for basketball and help communicate the passion Jesus Christ has for them? Join the coaching staff for a youth basketball clinic for ages 8-17 and the administrative staff for a summer basketball league for players ages 18-25. Length of service is 2 weeks to 1 month.

Requirements:
*Must be a US Citizen or US Permanent Resident. Single male with college, high school or junior high coaching experience. Live with a host family or in a studio apartment. This opportunity is available for the month of July.

Responsibilities:
Coach fundamental skills during the basketball camp to groups of 6-8 athletes. You can also share your testimony of how you became a Christian. Be a court monitor during summer league games.

Strategically, you'll be building relationships with players, parents, and local coaches. Long-term relationships with some via e-mail & skype have the potential to multiply followers of Christ. For those who come from underprivileged situations, your demonstration of compassion while teaching them about skills and character leaves a valuable and lasting witness for Christ.

We have office space on a commercial street and access to a 3 court gymnasium in downtown Brussels. We now have a full year of dynamic programs ranging from the week-long vacation camps and 2 weeks (6 nights) of summer league in July to a season-long weekly shooting clinic and a US college scholarship trip for elite players to study in the US.

Language Needs:
French would be helpful

Living Environment:
Host family or a studio apartment.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

Although the doors are opening, building relationships with Belgian nonbelievers is still a challenge. It requires time and patience to see those who are mostly indifferent to the gospel take small steps toward faith. Club and camp activities for youth, sports ministries and education are continuing directions for evangelism and outreach.

Training debriefing
All interns will be assigned a pre-field mentor who will help coach them through the pre, on, and post-field journey. This typically involves connecting by phone or Skype every few weeks to walk through basic pre-field ministry topics like raising support, safety, ministering cross-culturally, etc. as well as providing prayer support and guidance through logistics. The intern's mentor will also set up a time to debrief and follow-up after their internship.

Mission Trip Offered By WorldVenture

Billions of people don’t know Jesus. We’re not okay with that.

More than words, they are a reminder on the wall of our main office of why we do what we do. Since 1943, God has used thousands of WorldVenture workers and partners to impact millions with the good news.
We plant churches, build clinics, educate children, train leaders, provide disaster relief, combat injustice, foster the arts, and serve the poor with economic development…in Jesus name and to make disciples.
We recruit, train, and send disciples of Jesus throughout the world who sense Gods call to give their lives to share the gospel with people who have yet to hear it. And we partner with multitudes of Christ-following disciples in engaging the world for gospel impact.
Join us!
