SURGE 2018


About SURGE?

SURGE is European Initiative’s 30-day missions’ intensive, based in Berlin, Germany.  If you are between the ages of 18 – 28 and have a passion to impact Europeans who have never heard about a relationship with Jesus, then we invite you to come be a part of a powerful movement this summer. Not only will you experience life and ministry in the hip and multicultural city of Berlin, but you will also take a missions’ trip to one other European nation (location to be announced upon arrival). Throughout the course of SURGE you will learn how to share your faith in a post-modern and atheistic society and also receive practical training and discipleship from pastors, missionaries, and other Christian leaders. SURGE is a front-line missions experience that will challenge you to step outside your comfort zone and live in the realm of the extraordinary. 

Your European Missions Experience

Today Europe is the world’s least evangelized continent. Across Europe, atheism is on the rise, suicide rates are soaring, and the majority of people have never encountered God in a personal way. For 30 days, you will engage in urban outreaches utilizing the creative arts, service projects, compassion ministry, prayer and worship, and more. European Initiative may also be hosting other American teams during your SURGE trip. During these weeks, SURGE team members will still engage in outreaches but will take on a different role as they help serve and lead visiting teams.

Where Will You Stay?

You and all other SURGE team members will stay at the Gnadenhaus in Berlin. The Gnadenhaus (mercy house) is owned and operated by British Christians who have been hosting EI teams since 2008. It is located on the edge of Berlin in a beautiful, wooded surrounding.
