New estimates put the Evangelical population in Portugal at less than 1%! Come partner with the local believers in Fafe and use your gifts in dance to bringing the hope of Jesus to this devout Catholic nation. The goal of this team is to be an encouragement and a blessing to this small church, and work together to reach out to the unreached surrounding community.

During the outreach week you will use your gifts in dance to participate in and lead a Dance workshop focusing on reaching out to young people. You will pass on your skills, share your testimony and build relationships. At the end of the week there will be an opportunity to put on a recital in the town center for the parents and community. There will also be opportunities to perform street dancing, be involved with the church and build relationships with the community through intentional activities. Be prepared to be flexible!
