Explorer projects are designed for individuals and couples looking to join the Linguæ Christi team for a period longer than a few months but shorter than three years (limited to two years in the UK).

Church Planting Team - Wales

Opportunities in WalesLinguæ Christi is first and foremost involved in local church planting. This is at the heart of Linguæ Christi's vision and mission and the primary assignment of all long-term personnel. Explorer participants in Wales will be assigned to a focus team among the Cymry Cymraeg. Participants would be expected to engage fully with the language-learning process, participate in team approaches to Gospel interaction with Celtic language speakers in the designated focus team area, and to develop personal connections in the community for the purposes of evangelism, discipleship, and Church planting or development.

The Gospel of Jesus is one that redeems individuals, families and communities and permeates every aspect of our lives. Our goal is to build relationships that lead to spiritual conversations, followers of Christ, and disciple-making disciples living in authentic and Biblical spiritual communities. We open our lives to God's far-reaching work with the help of an approach we call the six-fold incarnational strategy.

Student Outreach Teams - Ireland and Scotland

 

 

This project consists of teams of individuals and/or couples enrollment in an established university: one team in an Irish-speaking area in Ireland and one in a Gaelic-speaking area of Scotland. The primary focus would be an intensive course of study in the language and culture toward a goal of fluency or high competence in the language. Ideally, this project could be extended for as long as participants remain enrolled and are continuing language/culture study on a full-time basis, with an option to continue through an actual degree in Irish or Gaelic (generally 3 years for a bachelor’s degree). As part of the long-term strategy as well as platform, project participants would also receive training from Linguæ Christi and partner ministries in the area of oral Bible development in Irish or Gaelic, which would be the basis of local ministry during the time of study (see below), as well as long-term strategic development of orality-based evangelism, discipleship, and Church-planting strategies in Irish or Gaelic.

As a secondary focus whilst in full-time study, these personnel would also attempt to develop an organic-missional campus outreach among the students at the institution of study. The goal is evangelism, discipleship, and group development (Church-planting) through Gaelic with Gaelic-speaking students, as well as the foundation for an ongoing campus ministry to be led and carried forward by national believers coming from this ministry and approach.
