Re-Ignite Sweden

Re-Ignite’s first Global Encounter team returned from Sweden and Estonia on May 20, 2014.  

ABOUT THE TRIP

The Global Encounter was designed to challenge participants to see their individual story as a part of God’s bigger story in the world. There were four unique components to the trip:

RE-IGNITE RETREAT. Paticipants took time in a quiet, contemplative setting in another country to reflect on life experiences. They discovered how they are uniquely designed for life and ministry; they explored passion and purpose in life. Swedes and Americans in the same stage of life but from different countries and cultures shared in this life-changing experience.

EDUCATION.  We learned about Nordic-Baltic history, culture and the current status of religion and Christianity in Sweden and Estonia. Visited and experienced “signs of hope” – ministries being done to deliver the Good News.

DEVELOPED meaningful relationships with Swedes and Estonians. Served together on special projects. Worshipped together. Encouraged Christian leaders through visits and prayer.

EXPLORED. We saw the beautiful cities of Stockholm and Tallinn!
