Hello, I’m Owen. I am currently a senior in high school at Waukee in Iowa. I plan to go to college for Applied Linguistics at Moody Bible Institute, eventually joining the mission field for Bible translation to unreached people groups. I am going on this trip because I have very little practical missions experience, so this will be a gateway to what, God willing, will become my career.

Trip Overview

Berlin, the capital of Germany, is a city unlike any other. It's deep history of division, war, reconstruction and runification has lead to it being a diverse playground for everyone; from the creative to the business professional to the outcast, all are able to find their home in Berlin. And on this trip, you will have a closer look at this diverse city while impacting those who call Berlin home. Less than 2% of the population are professing Christians, which means most people in Berlin have gone their whole life without ever even meeting a believer. That means you could be the first! So whatever you are passionate about and skills you have to offer, bring them because Berlin can use them!

You will spend the summer working in partnership with our team, along side of Germany ministries and churches. Each week has a different focus so you can experience the breadth of ministry that exists in Berlin and step out of your comfort zone to see how your talents can impact the urban world.

Some outreach possibilities includes:

  • English Camps
  • VBS
  • Young Adults summer project
  • Anti-trafficking work
  • Prayer outreach and prayer walks throughout the city
  • Evangelism
  • Arts Outreach — visual and performing
  • Sports Ministry

We would love to have you here and help you take your faith and leadership to the next level. We want to see Berlin transformed by the gospel and we would love for you to join us! The real life experiences of learning to engage in a post-christian city will be a blessing you’ll never forget.

Housing is different from year to year. Depending on the group size and ministries the students will be engaged in and where they're located in the city, we choose housing based on that. In the past we have used AirBNB, a hostel, host family, and church. There is a chance that the students will move locations a time or two in the summer, so they should be prepared to carry any luggage they have on public transportation.
