Do have a passion for systems or structure (or maybe both)? The very nature of missionary work is that it needs people who are gifted not only in discipleship and evangelism, but in keeping things running smoothly either behind the scenes or on the front lines. Join the Adventure and help bring order to chaos!
Imagine a world where bankers, doctors, store owners, mechanics, architects, and other professionals were considered as much a missionary as a church planter or evangelist! Those who are called to full time vocations have a unique ability use their talents and experience within the marketplace to reach unique groups of people; each individual business or industry is a mission field!

Skilled and unskilled workers who have a passion for impacting the families and children of Europe (locals, ex-patriots, and immigrants alike) there is Adventure with Jesus to be had!
The heartbeat of GEM is to see churches planted, which at core are outward-looking, outward-serving groups of disciplemakers.

Not only is the idea of community one of the greatest tools to show the tangible nature of the Gospel and God's love, it is built into how God interacts with each one of us.

Do you have a favorite hammer-drill? Do you dream about a new double bevel compound miter saw or are you simply handy with a paintbrush? If so, God may be calling you to Adventure in Europe!

You’ll work with local believers who will allow you to not only use your skills for the Kingdom, but also to help you to engage in spreading the Good News and impacting the nations.
There is no clearer command in the Bible than Jesus' call to "go and make disciples, who make disciples, who make disciples. This is the bread and butter of missions.

Come to Europe, go on an Adventure with God, and give your life away to see the Great Commission fulfilled!
God is using education to open doors for gospel presentation around the globe.

No matter your specific calling, we'll help develop your skills at all levels, both in education and in sharing your faith/discipling others. Join the Adventure!
In Paris, there are more than 200 individual cultures represented within the city's boundaries. Daily, immigrants pour into the cities of Europe from North Africa, Asia, and the Middle East by the hundreds. This is what we describe as Every Nation, One Location. If you have a heart to reach Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, or Tibetan monks for Jesus, you can follow that calling in Europe like in no other place in the world!
For centuries, art in its various forms existed primarily within the Church, much of it in Europe. When we participate in the arts, we demonstrate one of the core marks of God’s image on our lives—the ability to create. Is God calling you to use your gifts and talents to change the cultural conversation stirred by the arts in Europe? Painters, musicians, actors, dancers, illusionists, and mimes are all welcome.

We’ll train you in effective methods to share your story and build a bridge from Islam into a relationship with the living God.
Live an Adventure on the streets of Europe, getting God’s heart and eyes to see the community as He does and to understand what God wants to do there through prayer. In an area with so few believers to pray blessing over communities, businesses, and people, this is a powerful thing. More often than not, it opens doors to interact with people and share your faith. Imagine someone’s surprise when you declare that you came all the way to Europe to pray for his or her city!
God’s heart has always been with “the least of these.” From helping prostitutes escape bondage in brothels to being the hands of Jesus to refugees in Southern Europe, there are a myriad opportunities to impact lives in Europe.

Sports have always connected with the spirit and passion of people, challenging them to go beyond what they believe are their limits and achieve more. These are in truth Kingdom passions, and when aroused and directed they can be used to change the course of a life or even a nation. From kids’ soccer camps to sharing you faith at a major international sporting event, this is an Adventure of a lifetime!
Maybe you are an IT professional, or maybe you just want to teach kids how to use a computer. Maybe you see beauty through photography and want to direct that passion toward Kingdom building.

Imagine meeting a modern group of people who don’t know anything about the Bible, the Church, or Christianity, and don’t know the difference between King David and Darth Vader. The young people of Europe live and operate in a unique culture, with a unique open-ness to the Gospel because they have literally never heard it. Interact with this dynamic group in their space: pubs, coffee shops, universities, and night-club ministries in the iconic cities of Europe.
