True partnership is mutual
When you go on mission with an InterVarsity Global Program or Global Urban Trek, you will go out with a team whose primary focus is on the God, who has created a beautiful world and goes out into that world in mission. With that focus, you can partner with the long-term ministries in the places you go—whether that is an indigenous student movement outside the United States, western missionaries serving in closed countries, or Christian community development leaders in urban slums.
The presence of you and your team can creatively benefit the long-term work when your focus is on God as the leader and on your team’s role as a small piece of the overall work.
God is in the business of engaging with the world in its beauty, diversity, and brokenness. When you participate in Global Programs or the Global Urban Trek and see God as the one who reaches out, you encounter some of the world’s beauty, diversity and brokenness and have the opportunity to work alongside God and those whom God has beautifully and wonderfully made, doing the things God has called each of us to do.
