Descripción General del Viaje

This year in our STEP into MENA program, we will be offering a special track for those seeking training in serving the people from MENA by using the Arts.

1st month:Trainees study the local dialect and receive basic training for service among the least reached in MENA, coached by experienced trainers.

2nd month: Artists receive specialized training and coaching from experienced international artists, followed by a time of engaging in creative art projects in partnership with local artists.

3rd month: Trainees receive mentoring as they continue to specialize in their area of interest, and continue with creative art projects. The Artist track of our 12-week short-term exposure programme (STEP) is an opportunity for artists to both grow and minister as they build relationships with artists in the host culture. They will learn how to use their skills and make disciples within a MENA context, as they learn some basic language and culture skills.

This practical and interactive programme is meant to be a steppingstone into further ministry among the least-reached peoples from the MENA region, whether within MENA or among immigrants in the Diaspora.

While all artists can apply, we will be giving priority to musicians this year (2024) as we have some music projects lined up.

Because of the limited number of places, applicants will be chosen by the team of trainers. As we will be performing interviews and approving applications as we receive them, we encourage you to let us know of your interest as soon as possible.
