Are you outgoing? Do you love to meet people? Come partner in a work that God is doing among university students in Eastern Europe, and use your gifts and interests to build relationships. With 150,000 university students in a city of over 2 million, the possibilities are endless. You will have opportunities to meet other students through coffee house visits, helping with ESL classes, sports ministry, and outreach events like karaoke night and weekly broad gospel sowing activities. You will have the chance to help in house church plants and be a part of a team reaching out to an area that is less than .5% evangelical. Come join the work God is doing here and see how it will not only change others’ lives, but yours as well.
The work will be primarily with university students although you may encounter some older and younger through ESL and house church interaction. You will work alongside existing house churches that have seen about 80% of the new believers come from university students. The main religion is Eastern Orthodox but there is a shift away from this in the university age group. Since the work is about relationship building, you need to be more people-oriented than task-oriented, and you need to be able to lead and follow. The culture is very relational and never on time. Housing will be in a hostel on a university campus.
Walking will be your primary mode of transportation. Summers are warm and mild with some rainfall.
