Transform 2017 Portugal - Church Ministry Team

Transform 2017 (www.transform.om.org) is a unified effort around Europe to create momentum for the gospel by mobilising people and training them in telling their personal God story.This outreach will be in partnership with the Portuguese church. You will be working with them to reach out to some of the least reached in Europe – the local Portuguese!

New estimates put the Evangelical population in Portugal at less than 1%! Come partner with the local believers in bringing the hope of Jesus to a Catholic nation that is blinded by their devotion to Mary. The goal of these teams is to be an encouragement and a blessing to the church, and work together to reach out to the unreached surrounding community. You could be involved in anything and everything – from children’s ministry, street evangelism, puppet shows, clean up projects, working with the youth etc.

Applicants must be 18 or over.
