Have you been asking God for an opportunity to get involved in missions, serve the global church, and follow Him outside your comfort zone? Are you ready to answer God with a "Here am I, send me!", or take a team to minister in a country other than your own? We want to help! Since its inception in 2009, The Awakening has led what we call open teams and custom teams to Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Malaysia, Australia, Haiti, Hungary, Wales, Belgium, Romania, and the Netherlands. Whether you are a student who's ready to serve cross-culturally or a student pastor who is ready to see what God will do in the lives of your youth over a week's time, we'll help get you there!

Over the years Hungary has become a second home for the Awakening. What we now call The Awakening International Base used to be the home of missionary couple Linda and David Fannin. After a series of transitions, our second home became one of The Awakening’s permanent residences as well as a training base for leaders from all over the world. This has been a wild adventure and one we are inviting you to join us on this summer! In just a year and a half, the staff at the base has gotten plugged into the community around them and has gotten to know the Hungarian people in a new and wonderful way. Through ministries like TAB Coffee House, English Club, various community outreaches, and local church ministry, we have come to deeply love and carry a burden to see Jesus be made known in this nation and we want you to be part of it!
By joining us in Hungary, you will embark on a journey alongside the missionaries serving at our International Base. You will work with local IPHC congregations, lead a VBS program, assist with a church plant among the gypsy community, and simply share King Jesus with everyone you come into contact with! We can't wait to see what God orchestrates in Hungary and we can't wait to see if He sends you on this journey with us!
Open to anyone in Europe is our upcoming trip to Malta, a little island country in Southern Europe right between Italy and North Africa. With an interesting history and a peculiar language, Malta is a fascinating place! Our church family there is passionate about reaching people, particularly the young generation, and that is exactly what we are going to help them do during our time there.
Join us on this trip if you would like to help us spread the gospel to the people on the streets of Malta and serve in other capacities as well! Your talents of music, dancing, your readiness for praying with people, sharing the gospel with them and loving on them will be help us to accomplish our mission!
Each year we organize two open teams. These teams provide opportunities for individuals desiring to join us on a trip, but aren’t part of a custom team, to do so. Due to the nature of open teams, members often meet each other for the first time on a connecting flight or upon arrival. It’s amazing how God can take a group of people who have never met before, unite them by His Spirit, and use them to make a difference in the lives of the people with whom they come into contact!
The people that I had the privilege to meet in Costa Rica reminded me of
my passion for missions. Our team traveled to Costa Rica to serve their
people, when ultimately they are the ones who served us. I am thankful
for broken Spanish and broken English
because somewhere in between, the brokenness is mended. There are no
language barriers in the Kingdom of God.
