Xplore: A Year in Mission and Evangelism

Xplore Logo

Xplore a year in mission and evangelism

• Are you 18 to 25 years old?
• Passionate about evangelism and mission?
• Keen to be trained to serve God in your local community?
• All at a low cost?

Our Xplore programme for young adults, brought to you by Church Army, is a gap year with a difference. It enables you to remain living where you are while receiving weekly online training and support from the Xplore team. Throughout the year, there are also regular residential weekends and the opportunities to take part in mission placements in Romania and with Church Army evangelists across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Let go of any thought of a traditional year out or a gap year programme. The Xplore year in seeks to shape itself around your circumstances and grow out of your heart for mission. We are a group of explorers engaging with and often experimenting in mission and evangelism. A community who deeply want to see our cities and towns transformed as people encounter Jesus.

Two young people on the programme this year said...

“I’ve had a brilliant time so far with Xplore where I’ve been given the space and opportunity to discover my gifts and grow in them. During my trip to Romania I have been part of the building team helping some of Europe’s poorest communities. The Xplore teaching sessions have also been helpful and one of the biggest things I’ve learnt is the need and importance to be in a right relationship with God before going about evangelism to others.”

"Thanks to the Xplore year in I’ve learnt how important prayer is to mission and reaching people in my community. Each week we have online Xplore groups where we receive teaching and can share stories, ideas and learn from each other’s experiences. It is a great encouragement to talk to the other Xplorers who are excited about mission and who you know are praying for you and challenging you to act on what you’re learning.”
