GEM encourages involvement in EuroTeam missions project

By February 16, 2005

Europe (MNN) — Greater Europe Mission is excited about their short-term mission project "EuroTeam" and how it is impacting lives for Christ.

The short-term mission project is a ministry of service. They take individuals from churches in North America to Europe to use their talents to build and encourage churches. "Jim" with GEM says their goal is to show the volunteers what missions is really like overseas.

"They use the talents and skills God has given them in a variety of ways. Projects may include construction or renovation, teaching English, teaching computers, medical outreach and other forms of service that could be helpful to the churches."

The churches are able to offer a service to their community and bring people in who normally would not enter a church. While serving those in need members are able to share the Gospel message of Christ.

"Many times volunteers return home with a new view on missions. They come back to pray, to give to missions, to get involved in a church and many often have an interest in returning."
