MDT Caravan 2020, Turkey: Turkey

We aim to give participants

  • knowledge and experiences to help them grow, and continue growing, in their knowledge of, and intimacy with God and awareness of self
  • an understanding of God's heart for the nations. We particularly focus on what God is doing amongst Muslim people in the world and within our movement, while exposing pariticpants to various opportunities. Participants will learn biblical and proven skills and tools to engage Muslim peoples. Participants will be provided opportunities to apply what they have learned within Turkey and another Muslim country.
