Dawn Treading has two primary goals. It seeks to:

  • Guide the individual into greater intimacy with Christ so that they would know themselves better and understand clearly God’s calling in their lives.
  • Expose the individual to what God is doing globally and cultivate a deep and genuine love for those around the world with the Gospel.

Dawn Treading facilitates personal discovery and growth through service as a member of a church planting team. The individual will be a language student at a local university and will engage with locals in cross-cultural interaction for the purposes of life-on-life sharing. They will be mentored and coached by long-term team members as they explore more deeply their own gifts, talents, and skills. There will be multiple opportunities to interact with a number of different cross-cultural workers who specialize across different disciplines.


Start and end dates are determined on a case-by-case basis. The minimum is a one semester stay but longer programs are encouraged.
