Leap

"Leap Logo"

Are you passionate about God Kingdom and seeing it extend to the outer reaches of the earth? Do you want to walk along side others and see them reach their potential, doing what God wants them to be doing? Are you searching for your own direction and 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 opportuntiies 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.

    Team STOMP

    As part of the Leap year you will have the opportunity to join one of the WEC Australia STOMP teams (link). STOMP Teams head overseas for 2-3 weeks, depending on a trip to one of the other WEC Teams based around the world. There they spend 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 themselves. These trips are life-changing events and you will have the opportuntiy to be apart of it.
