The purpose is to reach those seeking Jesus in Turkey through creatively proclaiming the Good News alongside other believers in Turkey and with your own team in a least reached province.

These outreaches will be kickstarted with an unforgettable day of ministering to thousands of Muslim pilgrims through prayer and literature distribution as they journey up to the peak of an island off the coast of Istanbul. Travel with your team to one of Turkey's least reached provinces to follow the Holy Spirit's leading as you make friends and share the Greatest News.
