Transform 2017 Turkey: Awaken Anatolia! - Partners Together

Transform2017 (www.transform.om.org) is a unified effort around the Mediterranean to create momentum for the gospel by mobilising people and training them in telling their personal God story.
Our goal is reaching Muslims in Turkey with the Good News, using a variety of methods.
Come and encourage a fledgling Turkish church. Support them in their task to reach their town with the gospel. Be used by God to raise the profile of the church, share Gospel truths and bring glory to Jesus.

We are experiencing a unique time in Turkish history where doors are open to share the Gospel. We want to take advantage of that!
You will be trained and equipped to reach out by learning some simple phrases in Turkish and sharing your story and God's story. As a team you will work very closely with the local Turkish church and learn from them but you will be a good model too as you step out in faith & reliance on God. We are planning to use a variety of methods (according to opportunities and gifts in the team) for outreach, for example inviting people, language classes, serving the church, friendship evangelism, street evangelism, creative arts, literature distribution etc.). You will see God at work!

Applicants must be 20 or over.
