TRAINING & SERVICE
Begin by experiencing a ministry for rural Ugandan villages that joins public health concerns, community formation, and spiritual growth. You will learn from veteran D4D (Discipling for Development) practitioners and Ugandan Christians who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of the gospel and to building thriving communities.
After your time in the villages, you will join Ugandan university students in evangelism on their campus and build confidence to live out your faith by engaging in spiritual disciplines in a new context. Throughout this trip you will learn the integration of physical, social, and spiritual development and ministry principles that can be applied to any vocation and context.
Immerse yourself in a new culture to better understand your own, and to grow in serving others for the sake of God’s kingdom for a lifetime. Through this exposure and the counsel of Navigator staff with 20+ years of experience in cross-cultural missions, you will learn to recognize and respect differing cultural values and worldviews.
