The MDT Caravan is a 5 month discipleship programme.  It is an awesome opportunity for participants to connect with the least reached, at the same time as growing in their relationship with God and others.

We aim to give participants:
  • Knowledge and experiences to help them grow, and continue growing, in their knowledge of God and themselves.
  • An understanding of God's heart for the nations. We particularly focus on what God is doing amongst Muslim people in the world and within our movement, while exposing participants to various opportunities. 
Participants will learn tried and tested skills and biblical tools to engage Muslim peoples. Participants will be provided opportunities to apply what they have learned within Turkey and another Muslim country.
As a result of MDT Caravan, we want to see global participants, including same, near and far-culture people, walking in step with God as their hearts and experiences are stretched.  We want to equip them practically and with confidence to engage with Muslims as a member of our teams or in their home church in the Muslim world or diaspora.

Participants need to be flexible, teachable, somewhat adventurous as they explore and adjust to a new environment.  Participants need to be in good health as the MDT programme requires a lot of walking and travelling.

People will be staying in rented flats sharing with other participants or in the homes of other workers. 

Students are given allowances each week and expected to cater for themselves by a simple lifestyle. Some team meals will be shared together.
