student missions 2019


In 1885, seven Cambridge students left the UK to take the Gospel to Chi na’s lost millions. For them this was a radical response to Christ’s call to “go into all the world.” One of the students was CT Studd, a world-famous cricketer and all seven had privileged backgrounds. Before departing, the Seven toured UK universities and when other students saw that these who “had everything” were “giving it all up” to sow their lives into missions, they were stunned. Hundreds were inspired to follow. Seventy years later another seventy students went out, inspired by the Seven to devote two years of the lives to international missions. Today, this wild call to follow Christ and to go into all the world, even unto the ‘ends of the earth’, is still going out. God is still calling. Will you follow.. his call…. of the wild?

Call of the Wild by Jack London

“Deep in the forest a call was sounding, and as often as he heard this call, mysteriously thrilling and luring, he felt compelled to turn his back upon the fire and the beaten earth around it, and to plunge into the forest, and on and on, he knew not where or why; nor did he wonder where or why, the call sounding imperiously, deep in the forest.”

CT Studd

“Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell.”

DL Moody

“God has given us two hands -one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing.”


Can you hear the call of the wild?

In the summer of 2019 we are planning on taking groups of young adults into the nations to spread the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. This is not going to be a vacation, but a month-long challenge. We are looking for young adults who are wanting to step into their identity as warriors for the kingdom of God. Jesus was serious when He gave the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and so are we.

OPTION B: Bring a team

If you're part of a CU or church group that would like to go on outreach together, please get in touch. We'd love to support you in sharing Jesus more widely.

OPTION C: Build a team

If you've already done a YWAM DTS and would like to lead an outreach to a location of your choice, we can support you in recruiting a team and making appropriate preparations. You'll be responsible for your team while on outreach, but we'll provide training and debrief for your team in the UK at the beginning and end of the programme. 

The first few days would consist of training at the Youth with a Mission (YWAM) base in Derby. We will do our best to equip you to be the most effective for the kingdom of God. You will then depart with your team to your mission location. Once there you will be working with your team to present the Gospel message in a way that best serves that nation. This could vary from mercy ministry to street evangelism. After spending around 3 weeks in the mission field you will come back for a time of debriefing and sharing your stories with the other teams. And those stories you will be able to carry with you for the rest of your life.
