Message from Jordan Coates

Hello, My is Jordan I am originally from Iowa, and moved out to New Jersey in September of 2017. I believe God is calling me to this trip to learn more about missions. There are currently 6,300 people groups who do not know or have access to Jesus Christ. I heard this stat at a conference called Cross, taking the Gospel across cultures. His children are the ones to go and share His Good News to the world. In the summer of 2017 I attended Band of Brothers in Christ, a discipleship program on what it means to follow Christ, and how to walk out the faith of Jesus. I moved to New Jersey shortly after the program to continue in discipleship to live in community with other Jesus loving believers called the mission house. I can’t put into words on how the first year has shaped me into the man God is calling me to be. I’ve grown more in my walk with the Lord. In my second year I have the privilege of being a House Director, leading four other men into what living for Christ looks like on a daily basis. Through being equipped and being discipled, I believe God is calling me to go over seas and make disciples and share Jesus all over the world. Thank you for partnering and supporting me, as we continue to fight the good fight of faith.

Trip Overview

Berlin is one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan cities in Europe. You won’t see a lot of lederhosen on the U-Bahn, but you might encounter a tech start-up, a sculpture artist, a politician and a plethora of cafes—just by walking down the street.

Experience Berlin from the Inside Out: It’s time to dive into the urban world, beyond the typical tourist attractions and museums. You’ll live together in one of the city’s 12 districts but will travel throughout the city and see first-hand what it takes to serve the entire city. Berlin will start to feel like home and as you begin to fall in love with the expansive public transport system, the abundant parks, the flea markets, the creative and organic vibe of the city—and of course, the residents themselves.

Break into Local Community: Spend an afternoon listening to a troubled teen tell his story. Paint an old ship from the Soviet-era being repurposed for people in transition. Package food alongside Berliners who are helping the homeless. Prayer walk through emerging communities and visit a start-up church. Set-up for a city-wide outreach for young adults, meet the practical needs of refugees, or provide kids with a meaningful VBS experience. Serve the city by serving its people and our partners.

Learn from Local Leaders: No syllabus, no homework—just real-life experiences and life-changing conversations. The urban world demands diverse approaches to ministry and flexible thinking, and Apex will expose you to local leaders and ReachGlobal staff who are transforming their communities with the gospel in fresh ways.

Break Out of the Mold: 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, then Apex might be just what you need to take your faith and leadership to the next level as you learn how to engage the post-Christian mindset in one of Europe’s most influential cities. But be careful—after a summer, you just might want to come back for more.
