Dive into the urban world. No syllabus, no homework, just real life experiences and life-changing conversations. Life in the city demands diverse approaches to ministry and flexible thinking, and Apex will expose you to local leaders and mission staff who are finding fresh ways to transform their communities with the gospel.
Immersed in Berlin's diverse culture, you'll spend time at gathering spots around the city to hear from locals and serve alongside others to help refugees and Berlin's homeless population. You'll prayer walk through emerging communities, visit a start-up church and serve the city by serving its people and our partners.
You'll live with others in one of Berlin's 12 districts, commuting daily to experience the diversity of the city. Berlin will start to feel like home as you fall in love with the expansive public transport system, the abundant parks, the flea markets, the creative and organic vibe of the city, and the residents themselves.
Every Apex team is as unique as the projects and ministries they support. A multi-faceted city requires creativity, openness to change and a wide variety of people. If you are tired of the status-quo and ready for a challenge, Apex can take your faith and leadership to the next level as you learn to engage the post-Christian mindset in one of Europe’s most influential cities.
Berlin is one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan cities in Europe. You won’t see a lot of Lederhosen on the U-Bahn, the city's public transit system, but you might encounter a tech start-up, a sculpture artist, a politician and a plethora of cafes — all within walking distance. With 12 distinct yet inter-related districts, and the transportation to match, you will fully experience this historic, trend-setting and post-Christian city.
