Diaspora DREAM teams in Europe

Spend three weeks learning how to share the gospel with Africans living in Europe with experienced workers.

Background

Millions of Africans live outside of Africa, in North America, Europe, and around the globe – the African diaspora. Reaching out to these populations, and others like them, is called diaspora ministry.

Ministry and type of work

Dream teams run for two weeks and will allow you to experience ‘hands on’ diaspora ministry through partnership with local organisations. You will be equipped to share the good news of Jesus in an intentional manner alongside your teammates, while serving vulnerable communities in practical ways. You’ll build friendships with refugees and immigrants who have turned to Europe to find hope and a better life. Many of the people you meet will come from a Muslim background and you may be their first Jesus following friend. DREAM Teams are an excellent way to gain experience in serving people of other cultures as you grow your understanding of the complexities and challenges immigrants face as they move to seek a brighter future. You will also be encouraged as you partner with local Christians who demonstrate their love for Jesus, through a generous spirit of hospitality and a commitment to make Him known to others.

FAQS

Yes. Whether you go on a team assignment with other short termers, or an individual assignment, you will be part of a team once out on the field. Both teams and individuals will be placed within teams of long term workers and you will be a part of supporting their ongoing ministries.

Listen to one of our missionaries sharing about being a part of a team:


It depends on your placement and country - it may be very basic or have all modern amenities. We will ensure that your accommodation will be secure. It will either be living with a local family, a missionary family or in your own accommodation - sometimes with another short termer.

The approximate cost of a placement is £600-£1,800 for 1-4 weeks, £3,000 for 3 months, £4,500 for 6 months, and £7,000 for 12 months (though this will vary depending on the country and type of placement).

Don’t forget to ask your church about ways they can help you to raise support. You can also earn the money, apply for grants, organise a sponsored event or hold an information evening about what you will be involved in. Further guidance on raising support will be given once you have been accepted onto the short term programme.

Luke Herrin 

In Acts 18:10, the Lord told Paul that he should keep speaking clearly because he had many people in Corinth. The Lord has many people in your city. We just need to find them. And the best way to do that is just to talk to them.
