Work & Evangelism Team

Dates:  June 11 – August 5, 2021

Teen Team – Ages 13-19 (Adults may inquire about leadership opportunities)

Travel to one of the most spectacular islands in the world where you will experience 20 hours of daylight every day! Majestic mountains, active volcanoes, beautiful waterfalls, geysers, black-sand beaches, the North Atlantic Sea and vast glaciers all offer a stunning picture of Iceland – "the land of fire and ice."

Travel: Following your two weeks of training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you will bus to the Orlando International Airport and board a flight to New York before arriving in Reykjavik, home of the northernmost capital of the world. As you travel by bus 10 hours through the lush countryside, have your camera ready to capture the beautiful and diverse scenery of waterfalls, mountains, rugged cliffs, rushing rivers and lots of sheep. Your first destination will be in the city of Egilsstadir where YWAM has a base and guesthouse.

Ministry: While at the 5,000 acre YWAM base in Egilsstadir, your team will spend two weeks beginning construction of a cabin and making nature paths around the area. There will be opportunities to share the love of Christ through your presentations of music, puppets and dramas in the local churches. Following your time in Egilsstadir, you will bus another 10 hours to Hvollsvollur, where the Christian Conference Center at Kirkulaekjarkot is located. While at the conference center, you will help prepare for their annual Family Camp and then assist with cooking, cleaning and assisting in the children and teen programs.

Adventure: While at your project sites, you will enjoy hiking in the nearby areas of forests, mountains, and streams. While traveling to your project sites, there will be opportunities to see a waterfall, a glacier and the North Atlantic Sea. Before leaving Iceland, you will visit the famous Blue Lagoon, one of the 25 “Wonders Of The World,” where you will experience a geo-thermal spa.

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

With 50+ years of experience in long and short term missions ministry, Teen Missions has developed a strong relationship with the national church. Teen Missions has ministry bases in 22 countries where local youth from the national churches receive training and national church ministries receive work and evangelism projects. With over 300 full-time staff members (mostly nationals), we have a long-term presence on the ground long after the short-term team departs. This ensures that the valuable work and evangelism ministries of our summer teams are woven into the daily year-round efforts of the local host effecting lasting change and ministry fruit. Most of our teams are hosted by our own national full-time staff missionaries. Other teams are hosted by national churches and local ministries with whom, in most cases, we’ve been working with for years (if not decades).

Training debriefing
TRAINING – Your summer begins at our rugged 250-acre training facility in Merritt Island, FL. This two-week primitive camp acquaints youth and their leaders with realistic conditions of the mission field. Young missionaries learn teamwork and unity on the daily timed Obstacle Course, and experience each training activity as a team. All teams receive classes in Bible and evangelism, as well as church and open air presentation skills (music, testimony sharing, drama, puppets), and also spiritual and practical survival skills. Each team will also receive training relative to their specific project (construction basics, TESL-Teaching English as Second Language, motorcycle riding, first aid, reading glass assessment, choir, clowning, video/film, etc.). Trained adult leaders maintain strong discipline at Boot Camp and on the field. Boot Camp climaxes with a candlelight Commissioning Service under the Big Top tent, when youth and leaders depart for their particular projects. DEBRIEF – After the summer, a few teams at a time gather for several days of blessing and fellowship, and renewing friendships made at Boot Camp. There are sessions on how to come down from a spiritually high mountain, how to get involved in the local church and youth groups at home, and how to share about your summer mission trip. Each team will get to share with the other teams what God has done during their exciting summer of service. There will be one day for sightseeing and shopping.
