Student Summer Missions Positions
Are you a college student looking for a great opportunity to serve this summer? Baptists on Mission is looking for eight to ten collegiate missionaries willing to spend their summer teaching children about God through English Bible Camps
. The team will spend 7-8 weeks traveling across Eastern Hungary and possibly into Romania and Ukraine, hosting week-long camps in public schools and in Roma churches and villages.
At the heart of every community in Hungary is a public school. It is the central meeting place of people young and old. The most educated, respected members of society are employed there. The school holds each village together.
And now, thanks to a law passed by the Hungarian government in 2012, Baptists have an open door to share Christ in 49 communities through ministering to students and teachers in public schools.
The new law shifts the responsibility of some public schools from the government to a non-profit organization. Hungarian Baptist Aid (HBAid), a partner of Baptists on Mission
(NCBM), saw the opportunity and took on 49 of the poorest schools in Hungary (a total of 17,000 children), known as “B49,” the “B” for Baptist. Many of the schools they sponsor have a high percentage of Roma students.
Each one-week camp will be held in either a kindergarten, general school (Grades 1 – 8) or a high school. A typical camp will host 80 – 100 children who rotate through six stations throughout the day camp. The team will be provided transportation and translators by our partner, HBAid. Team members will host a closing program/worship service at the end of the week for the students, teachers and parents.
