GenSend Summer is designed to be one of the most exciting, intense and unique student missionary experiences in North America. It immerses young adults into a context where they gain practical knowledge of the realities of missions and leadership. Participants will spend their time learning to live life on mission under the guidance of local practitioners, compassion ministry leaders and church planters in a major city, on a college campus or at a Send Relief Ministry Center. While reinforcing gospel foundations and simple outreach practices, the intention of summers is to be an extension of the local church’s planting and mercy and compassion efforts.
“The first time that I decided to do GenSend, it was like, ‘Why wouldn’t you do it if you’ve heard so many people say that it’s changed their lives? Why wouldn’t you want to be a part of that? Then the second year, I go back and it’s because I’ve seen the impact and how it completely changed my life for the best. I ended up changing my major. I changed my focus…and it was because of the experience that I had with GenSend. There’s no job that would have taught me the things that I learned during GenSend.”
