Collegian to Collegian - Hands On (RCRW)

Season: Spring 2024 (not published)

Date: Jan. 22, 2024 - July 15, 2024

Description: The urban centers of South Asia are filled with millions of college students who dream of making an impact on the world. Less tied to South Asian culture and religion than their parents, these students are becoming increasingly open to new ideas and are generally open to spiritual conversations. Your job will be focused on building relationships with students and sharing the hope we have in Jesus with them. As students show interest, you will have the opportunity to follow up with them and begin discipling new believers. You will also be involved in equipping local believers to share their faith and make disciples on their campuses by training alongside local churches in the city. This is an opportunity to serve on mission while being mentored by a field missionary. You will also participate in the Hands On orientation and debriefing.
