Do you want to go to Latin America as part of a team which makes a difference?
Since 1985 Latin Link’s Step programme has sent thousands of individuals to serve the Latin American evangelical church in the form of Step teams. Whether you have three weeks or four months available Step will give you the opportunity to submerge yourself in the Latin American culture as you support a local church through practical and community based projects.
Wonder: a different kind of gap year
With this flexible programme, you can choose to spend time in one or two locations. There’s also space for learning more about mission, about how God is at work in our world, and about yourself. You’ll work alongside long-term CMS mission partners or local Christian partner organisations in Asia and/or in a multicultural urban area in the UK.
If you have a full 10–12 months, you can serve in Asia and in the UK. If you’ve only got 4–5 months, you’ll be able to serve in one location. It takes time to get your head around another culture, so we’ve placed a minimum time frame on this experience.
