What is it?
Engage Greece is a faith based study abroad program. The program is the perfect combination of schooling and ministry in Europe. The threefold mission is to push students to excel in academics, cultural immersion, and personal ministry. The program lasts three months, and gives young people the chance to live overseas and pursue their vocation. Consider the benefits of three months abroad – not only will you walk in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul through the streets of Thessaloniki, but you will make your own mark on this ancient city.
What will I do?
You will build friendships that last a lifetime. You will fight for social justice. You will have moments that make you stop and think, “I can’t believe I get to do this.” University years are the ideal time to experience a new culture and invest in others. If you feel like you are learning and growing at your university now- just wait until you go abroad… It is a whole new level!
The biggest adventure of your life is right around the corner!
