Opportunity Overview

Senegalese Christians in our partner's network are unaware that the local music and arts that surround them are a viable and respectable means of connecting with Jesus. Our purpose in these 10 days is to expose participants to this value. This may include direct teaching, discussion groups around relevant topics, and a concert. We will address questions about cultural arts being demonic, as well as give advice about how to research cultural arts to both find what and where they are as well as what they communicate. Our primary objective in this project is to expose our partners as well as churches and Christians in their network in Senegal to the power of their own local arts in their Christian worship and witness. We have also been asked to provide preliminary training in how to find and cultivate local arts for this purpose.

This cost covers only accommodation, meals, and transport for ministries. It does not include airfare, visa, travel insurance, required vaccinations, and airport transfer. Charges may be incurred for late cancellation. Dates and costs may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control.
Please contact us at 6743 1889 or if you are interested.
