Experience the Melanesian culture and their way of life this summer as you make a difference in this stunning island nation. The Solomon Islands includes six major islands and 900 smaller islands in Oceania. It is a tropical paradise, with unhurried village life and friendly locals. You'll partner with a missionary in Munda, Solomon Islands, this summer. The project scope is endless, with lots of needs in the area. From churches to medical centers. From schools to kindergartens. There are many practical projects needed to be done. The hope of the Gospel will come alive through the testimonies, music, and drama you will share. For sightseeing, you may go snorkeling in the coral waters full of beautiful marine life. There are also several war sights from WWII that you may visit. Don't just have an experience; become experienced in cross-cultural missions this summer.
Boot Camp is a time of training to prepare the teams for their respective mission fields. Over the first 10 days, team members and leaders participate in the Lord's Boot Camp, a program designed to build team unity and provide practical, physical, and spiritual training for their specific projects. We tailor each Boot Camp training according to the skills needed for each team. The 10 days primitive training will be at the Teen Missions base in Cooroibah, QLD.
A Commissioning Service will be held at the end of Boot Camp for all team members and leaders before flying out to their mission field.
To cap off the summer experience, teams will return to the Teen Missions base for a shared debrief time with other teams. The Debrief experience is essential to our summer team program for team members and leaders. During Debrief, the teams engage in different classes, allowing them to reflect on their summer and become equipped to take what they have learned on the mission field back home to their churches, youth groups, schools, and communities. In addition, we focus on fellowship, sharing summer experiences amongst the teams, and preparing them spiritually, mentally and emotionally for their return home.
