Immersion exists to inspire young people to put their faith into action and be used by God for His mission of redemption.

The programme is designed to immerse you in God’s Word, in ministry and in cross-cultural missions, in order to challenge you in ways you could never imagine, and drive you to depend on God more and more each day.

The programme consists of approximately 25% teaching/training in a classroom environment, and 75% field ministry experience. This field experience will primarily be focused on partnering with a local church to assist them in helping their church grow through internal ministry to its members, as well as external ministry to reach their local community.

Participants will also be assigned a mentor who will monitor the needs of each student, and will help participants adapt to the culture, minister effectively, and experience spiritual growth. Students will be accountable to their mentors. 

Do you want to learn more about God, yourself and your role in His kingdom? We would love to welcome you and walk with you!

We hope to have more dates soon!
