Surge

“Surge may have reset the course of my entire life. It has taught me to live for eternity, put others before myself, and build God’s Kingdom instead of my own.”
– Kaleah A.,  USA
“God is so sweet and totally soaked me in His love during Surge. I’m living in a more firm identity of who I am. I am hearing the Lord speak to me more. It was beautiful to move together as a team to share His heart with others — all while learning to trust and receive His sweet love, truth, and promises for me. It was a complete honor to be a part of Surge and I cannot wait to come back.”
– Hayley W., USA
“Surge was the best experience of my life. During this time, I learned how much God loves all people (including me) and how necessary it is to share the Gospel.   Before Surge, I believed it was enough to attend church and prayer meetings. But after Surge I understood that God has work for me to do!”
– Andrei M., Romania 
“Surge has been the most immense adventure. Serving with such dedicated and passionate brothers and sisters has truly been life changing. The horizon of my life has been widened, and I’ve found my heart for missions through Surge.”
– Chloe S., England 
“Surge changed my life and was a true turning point. I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again. God broke my heart for the nations of Europe. He opened my eyes to both the spiritual darkness throughout the continent, and also to the beautiful ways He is working in people’s hearts and drawing them to Himself.”
– Charity B., USA
“If God tells you to go to Surge, just go. Don’t argue. Don’t hesitate. Go. Determine while there to be completely present. Give it everything you have. Because you will both change lives and be completely changed. You will both give love, and feel more love than you’ve ever known. You will both know God and make Him known. Do not waste the opportunity.”
– Abigail G., USA
“One month of going out and sharing the love of Jesus will not leave you the same. You come to a point where you don’t need a reason to love somebody. You simply do it because HE did it for you first.”
– Christian P., Romania
“Surge was an amazing experience! Through it, I grew bolder and more confident. There were challenges, but it was definitely well worth it. I didn’t want to leave.”
– Aspen W., USA

ABOUT SURGE

SURGE is European Initiative’s 30-day missions’ intensive, based in the cities of Berlin, Germany and Budapest, Hungary.  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 or the “Paris of the East”, Budapest, 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 mission 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.
