European Riverboat Tour

In joining the European Riverboat Tour, you will be part of a three-month test phase sailing down the Rhine River on a passenger river vessel, through the Netherlands, Germany and possibly other countries. Our desire is to reach out to the communities living alongside the rivers of Europe and challenge local Christians to reach out to the least reached. We also want to provide a platform to present Europe with the message of Christ.

During this time you will: Live and work in a Christian community, grow in your relationship with God through spiritual teaching and input, Experience some of the different countries and people within Europe, engage in a new pioneering ministry within an established mission agency.

Ministry details

On board the vessel we will have a number of features—
GLOBAL VILLAGE: This is an interactive simulation alerting Christians of the needs in the world and challenging them to respond. We will need a sizeable number of people to be involved as actors in this simulation for part of their time on board.
EVENT FACILITY: We anticipate running a number of conferences on board and will need people both to help organize and participate in these conferences.
SHOP/CAFETERIA: We will also run a retail outlet on board serving food and other items and will need people to run this facility and engage with the locals as they come on board.
SHIP UPKEEP AND MAINTENANCE: We will also need technical people to help with vessel maintenance, cleaning, food preparation and other tasks.
