Are you looking for an opportunity to serve on a different continent this summer? Are you 18 to 30 years old? Are you longing to grow in your relationship with Jesus?
You are invited to join us and others this summer to proclaim Jesus in the Trujillo area of Peru. We are partnering with a local church to share the Gospel using the arts in many local church plants. This city of 1 million plus people is known for the arts through the large university population. The opportunities range from youth groups, plaza performances, sand boarding to build relationships with adolescents at risk of gang lifestyle, schools, house churches, performances on the board walk in front of the beach and the garbage dump where over 50 families live collecting garbage. The people, food and culture are warm and welcoming.
You will train with a team of individuals who have been approved from different parts of North America. The team will be led by someone from AV and partnering with our hosts in Peru.
You will stay and serve near Trujillo in a walled compound.
