What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
When you think of Scotland, you may think of redheaded, kilt-wearing, bagpipe-blowing Scots, right? Wrong. Scotland continues to be a hub for many immigrants from places like Eastern Europe (Roma Gypsies), East Asia (Pakistani and Indian), and the Middle East. And Hollywood has yet to capture the truly breathtaking landscapes of Scotland; from the mountainous Highlands to Inveraray’s famous castle and the seaside town of Dunoon, you will be amazed and overwhelmed at Scotland’s beauty.
Ministry-Most of Scotland’s youth consider God and Jesus “irrelevant” and believe they have better things to do on a Sunday than go to a church service. This is where you come in: your ministry will focus on building meaningful relationships. That may be hanging out with the local teenagers or ministering in a gritty neighborhood where over ten different languages are being spoken. You may also host “drop-in” youth clubs or run a VBS. Whether you’re eating BBQ on the beach or walking Edinburgh’s cobblestoned streets, we will teach you how to be intentional in all your conversations.
Adventure-There will be plenty of time to explore. You can wander the narrow, winding medieval streets of Edinburgh, popping into classy and bookish coffee shops that make you wish you owned a tweed jacket. You’ll see some of Scotland’s famous “lochs” (lakes), and hike along forested trails in the Scottish Highlands, with amazing views of sweeping valleys, green pastures, and countless sheep. If that still doesn’t tickle your fancy, what about seeing the iconic Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, or surfing the Underground during debriefing in London? Let’s go!
Experience Culture-Your first cultural experience will be trying to understand what the Scots are saying to you! It may be English, but the Scottish accent can be hard to grasp. Due to the recent influx of immigrants from around the world, Scotland is now a melting pot of culture. The streets are a mix of plaid kilts, Asian turbans, and colorful middle-Eastern hijabs, lined with quintessential Scottish pubs, curry restaurants, and street performers competing for your attention in the shade of church spires and castle turrets.
Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals
Your ministry in Scotland will be defined and organized by local missionaries who are our ministry partners. They, and their Christian cohorts, will follow up on the relationships you initiate and disciple new converts.
