Mission Internship: Summer 2017

flag-kenya-XLSerge is one of The Crossing’s main mission partners in Kenya.

Vision: The Serge team in Nairobi, Kenya exists to equip, minister, and engage with the local church through Bible storying training, soccer-based discipleship, and medical ministry. Our hope is to encourage leaders and cultivate a deeper understanding of the gospel of grace and it’s implications for all aspects of life.

The ultimate goal is to see a Kenyan church, which is (both corporately and individually) growing in understanding of the gospel, living life rooted in the gospel and more thoroughly equipped to reproduce.
