Come with Bishop Hee-Soo Jung, the resident bishop of the Wisconsin Conference and the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission of the North Central Jurisdiction, to a mission trip in China.
This is a unique opportunity for young adults, ages 18-35, to engage in an intentional, cultural immersion mission journey. Attendees will connect with young adult Christians of China, and learn about the work and witness of faith in the context of contemporary China. Over the last 25 years, many participants in Discover... Mission (formerly Mission Discovery) teams have gone on to be United Methodist missioners, deacons, elders, and laity leadership.
This ministry of young adults working with young adults in domestic and international settings was initiated by the late Bishop Sheldon Duecker in 1992. Like many Discover... Mission journeys, the upcoming journey to China will offer certification training so that participants will be qualified to co-lead/lead future Volunteer in Mission (VIM) groups. During Discover... Mission, China 2018, the team will will travel to Shanghai, Nanjing, and Beijing, China; meet with Chinese Christian leaders and leaders-in-training at leading Chinese seminaries, the Amity foundation, and local congregations; and visit many cultural sites, such as the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and the Forbidden City.
Cost: $3250 (double lodging) or $3706 (single lodging) for the first ten accepted team members. International airfare cost ($1065) included. Airfare cost is not guaranteed to stay this low for later accepted team members. Accepted team members will be responsible for personal expenses, including travel immunizations, passport and visa, and transportation to and from Chicago O’Hare Airport. Additional funding is available from UMVIM-NCJ for the first six applicants!
