the utter most ends of the earth? Do you want to walk along side others

doing? Are you searching for your own area of service? Are
you over 21 and have 16 hours a week to give to the Lord? Leap to a "yes" and we'll be seeing you.
The Leap programme
has been designed with flexibility in mind, yet allows you to be
mentored into cross-cultural ministry. It will provide you with opportunities to discover how and where God is leading you, give you
opportunities for training, both the theoretical and the practical, and
will help to prepare you for long-term service.
There are two forms for Leap available, the a Mobilisation Leap and a Media Leap:

You will join one of the many WEC Teams based around the world spending time with the missionaries on the ground, listening to their stories and experiences, encouraging them in their ministry and also having the opportunity to serve yourself.
