One thing I have learned over time, is that life is a lifetime of learning.  You need to flourish where God has called you, to continue to grow and develop where you are. We are putting together “a tailor made” cross-cultural experience right here in NZ within the local church context.  It would be 6 to 12 months for a team of people drawn from across the country.


We aim to:

  • give participants a greater understanding of what WEC is all about.
  • see participants grow in their passion for Christ, passion for the Gospel and a passion for reaching the world for Christ in a cross-cultural context.
  • give participants a greater understanding of what is involved in church planting and cross-cultural ministry
  • give participants a greater understanding of what is involved in local church ministry

Mentoring and coaching is an important component of the experience.

Crossing the Great Barrier


“Great barriers to Missions” is 5 day trip with an opportunity to experience God in a new way. We explore some of the myths, truths, and half truths, the barriers to mission. 


Some of the areas we will explore together are:

  • Guidance
  • Trusting God with our personal rights
  • Courageous discipleship
  • God’s faithfulness in our journey


What we will do?

There will be time to share your own experiences of God’s grace and guidance. This will be a relaxed time with plenty of space to wander the beach, swim, think, chat, and pray. The trip is open to school leavers (and older) interested in missions.
