Experience International Missions at Home
Atlanta is a multi-cultural, cross language mission experience designed to take students out of their comfort zones, and immerse them in a multi-ethnic setting. Students will gain experience sharing the Gospel and demonstrating the love of Christ. The International Village of north Atlanta is the most diverse 5-mile radius in the US, with over 761 language groups and 145 countries represented. Serving in these apartment complexes is not only lifechanging, but incredibly rewarding. Students will utilize sports, VBS, crafts, music, etc. to share the good news of the gospel with these unreached people groups.
About Atlanta and the Ministry of Mobilizing Students
Atlanta is the largest city in the southeast, and home to 1/3 of all Fortune 500 companies. Atlanta is the capital city of Georgia and boasts the busiest airport in the world. This major metropolitan city was home to the 1996 olympics, and is the headquarters for large companies such as Coca-Cola, AT&T Mobile, Delta Airlines, Home Depot, and UPS. Atlanta’s diversity & population density create an opportunity for crime like most metro areas. Although there are more than 1000 churches within the city limits, many go untouched by the Gospel because there are still not enough churches to keep up with new residents who migrate to the area each year. Attending church has become a cultural experience in the south, rather than a community focus of evangelism, so the field is ripe for harvest. Mobilizing Students seeks to utilize sports, VBS, and person to person evangelism to display Christ’s love & share the Gospel in 65 Metro Atlanta apartment complexes. As they build relationships with people, they desire to gather them around the Word, share the Gospel, and start Bible studies that will eventually become house churches, led by local missionaries.
Carmel is committed to making disciples of those Nearest, our Neighbors and the Nations. At Carmel we have defined a disciple as a follower of Christ in learning and living. This trip will be committed to just that: learning and living. Students will learn more about who God is, who they are, and the call to missions as they live out their faith in a practical way.
Students will work with Mobilizing Students to share Christ through inner-city sports evangelism, VBS and light construction in low-income apartment complexes. At some point during the project, students may be asked to spontaneously take part in a devotion time or worship service. Students should also be prepared to give their testimony publicly at any time.
