In line with our Student Ministry’s mission from Matthew 28:18-20 – “Turning Lost Students into Christ-Centred Labourers” – the purposes of our projects are:
Projects are run in line with Student Life’s core values:
All participants are given a portion of the cost of the project to raise for the funding of the project. Unlike a high school band trip or personal educational experience, this is God’s Mission and God’s People are called to partner with you through their prayers and financial support.
This may be hard to believe—but the church wants to give to the work of the Gospel.
You'll receive training on how you can ask the body of Christ to supply your needs to be on the mission. By seeking support, you are no longer representing yourself—but the whole body of Christ (which is why there are standards and expectations when attending a project).
A summer project propels you into a deeper walk with God and gives you greater confidence in making him known. You'll be stretched and developed in leadership skills.
From 1 week or up to 6 weeks you'll…
Maintain biblical standards of conduct (honesty, purity, teachability, following authority, etc.)
Be responsible to take your medication if you're on medication
Raising your support and paying the difference if unable to fully raise it
Be physically able to take part in all project activities
Attend the entire project (international projects flying together to and from NZ, domestic projects arriving on time and staying the entirety)
Accept the unforeseeable risks of travelling and circumstances outside of Student Life’s control
Yes, there is a schedule planned for each week which takes into account time doing mission work, time for rest and time for devotional time with the Lord.
The funds raised for the project will go towards other project-related expenses, and in some circumstances help others who have not been able to find their remaining support.
Our tax receipts are processed after the end of the NZ financial year (31st March). Allowing time for delivery we expect that you'll recieve your receipt late May or early June.
