Join the AMB Pilgrimage to Israel for 14 days in June 2012. We will walk from the Mt of Olives to Gethsemane as Jesus did on that first Palm Sunday, stay in Jerusalem, celebrate communion at the Garden tomb, visit Bethlehem and Nazareth, swim in the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee. Included will be a brief visit to St. George’s Cathedral and College.
Come expecting to see the bible come alive. You will never read it in the same way again.

Why Fiji? With its beaches, tropical climate, and warm, friendly people, Fiji is more than just a holiday destination, it’s an ideal place to learn to minister to people of diverse cultural backgrounds and get a feel of mission in a supportive and safe environment.
The need in Fiji also provides a great incentive to go there. Nearly half of Fiji’s population of over 800,000 are non-Christian. Many people are raised in a culturally Christian society where going to church is a norm and what you believe and what you live are not necessarily related. So there is both the opportunity for evangelism and the chance to encourage other believers.
Take this opportunity to work alongside leaders involved in church, youth and Sunday school ministries, as you share in God’s work together. Team members will have the chance to travel to a rural village to minister to believers and help with local outreach.
Comprehensive training, support and debriefing is provided for all team members.
* Dates could change slightly due to flight availability and scheduling of orientation.
November 2012 - With NZCMS
19th of November to 9th of December *
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see God’s amazing work in the Middle East. Encounter Middle East team members will have the chance to visit several countries and explore a wide range of ministries run by the local church (these include education and special needs ministries). Experience Church in an environment where people of many cultures and backgrounds come together to worship God.
The team will also spend quality time with NZCMS partners in mission, learning more about what it means to be a part of cross cultural ministry in a Middle Eastern context. Hear firsthand what it’s like to be a Westerner living in an Arabic environment. This is a fantastic opportunity to encourage Middle Eastern believers, and challenge your own understanding of what it means to persevere in faith.
Comprehensive training, support and debriefing is provided for all team members. Your safety is paramount and team members will be properly briefed about cultural protocol etc.
* Dates could change slightly due to flight availability and scheduling of orientation. The political situation in the Middle East will also be taken into account.
