Adventures In Missions Announces 'The Novas Project' for 18-24 Year-olds
GAINESVILLE, GA, June 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Adventures in Missions (AIM), a non-profit organization that facilitates short-term miAdventures In Missions Announces 'The Novas Project' for 18-24 Year-oldsssion trips throughout the world and within the United States, recently launched The Novas Project. The Novas Project is more than a mission trip. It's an 8-month missions experience for 18-24 year-olds, where men and women actually learn how to be a missionary. The word Novas literally means a "new way," and The Novas Project will forever change the way participants see the world.
The first part of The Novas Project is spent in Mexico at AIM's mission base where teams will be developed and trained for global outreach. During the second part of the trip, individuals will then partner with a long- term missionary to reach the poorest of the poor in various locations around the world.
Here are just a few assignments available through The Novas Project:
* Caring for orphans and widows in their distress in Swaziland, Africa.
* Teaching about HIV in schools in South Africa.
* Ministering to the gypsies and social outcasts in Romania.
* Befriending street kids in the Philippines.
* Working in schools, planting churches, building homes, and much more.
"The Novas Project isn't just a trip or vacation, it's an actual missionary experience," said Tag Thompson, Director of the Project. "Through our innovative training, we teach you how to be a missionary. Depending on your assignment, we may teach childcare, or organic gardening or how to preach the Gospel. Following training, individuals will be partnered with seasoned local missionaries all over the planet and will get to do what missionaries do on a daily basis. This goes beyond a short term trip to a real missionary experience."
According to AIM Director, Seth Barnes, "There is a generation of young people who are yearning to engage in a lifestyle of radical ministry and self- sacrifice. They are longing for an opportunity to authentically live in community, while serving others. They do not just want to learn about Jesus; they want to follow him. The Novas Project was created with this in mind."
