World Impact:  World Impact ministry, whether it occurs locally, regionally, nationally or internationally, is a tremendously rewarding way to extend God’s grace as we place others ahead of ourselves, and serve the Kingdom with a more global perspective.

Team Goals: This team is comprised of individuals who have personal capacity to support field workers in providing multi-level "life skills"  activities  (cooking, parenting, Bible studies, English language, grief and loss counseling) needed to encourage refugees, and ability to assist Lighthouse Life Center workers in tangible ways. We will pray together, encourage each other, form relationships, support the ministry already taking place there, and offer additional teaching, both practical and spiritual.

Location: Berlin, Germany

Housing:  Dorm housing at the Lighthouse Life Center. There will be regular American bathrooms and beds, and great fellowship/blessings.
