Eden Volunteers (Urban Missionaries)
EDEN TEAMS BRING TRANSFORMATION TO THEIR COMMUNITIES – FROM THE INSIDE OUT
THE PLACES IN GREATEST NEED OF TRANSFORMING POWER OF JESUS ARE OFTEN THE PLACES WHERE THE CHURCH IS IN DECLINE
We send and support teams of urban missionaries for these places – to live sacrificially, share the gospel and build authentic community.
Eden volunteers make their homes in poor neighbourhoods, sharing their lives and the gospel, Aspiration and achievement grow as young people are mentored and become disciples of Jesus, The atmosphere changes, leaders are raised, and communities are changed for good.
If God is calling you to join Eden, we’ll give you a call to start to get to know you and talk through some options with you. If you’re close enough to one of our regional hubs we’ll even take you out for coffee and cake.
Once we know a little bit more about what makes you tick, we’ll invite you to visit an existing team. You’ll see the reality behind the brochure and ask real people real questions. We’ll help you out with a guided journal to process what you’ve seen and what God might be saying.
When you’ve made a decision, we’ll ask you to complete a short application form and an interview with church and Eden team leaders in your chosen location. Our priority is to find a healthy fit for you and the team you join where we can be confident you will face challenges and grow.
