IGNITE Overseas Team

Congregational life & Witness, Global Mission, Youth and Children


This is a 'friendship evangelism' opportunity for young people aged from 18 to 25.

The IGNITE Team provides a wonderful opportunity for young adults aged 18-25 years to see something of what God is doing in and through His church elsewhere in Europe.  In addition, with the team being led by experienced leaders and hosted by PCI mission personnel who have a heart for discipleship, participation in the IGNITE Team encourages team members in their own discipleship journeys as they experience, better understand and play their part in God’s global mission.

In 2017, PCI’s IGNITE Team for young adults travelled out to work in support of the longer-term work being carried out by PCI’s overseas mission personnel, Csaba and Ilona Veres.  

Based in a centre in Geoagius, Transylvania, and working in conjunction with the youth department (IKE) of the Hungarian Reformed Church, PCI’s partner in the region, the team members helped lead an English Camp for 14 to18 year-olds from all over Transylvania. 

Through this programme, team members had opportunities to share the gospel and be involved in evangelistic activities.

If you’re still not sure whether this programme might be for you - here’s what some of the previous IGNITE Team members have to say about it…

"Throughout our planning and preparation, our time in Romania and our return home the team was hugely blessed by God and we are so thankful for His plans, love and grace for this mission." Suzanne Currie

"My time in Romania with PCI was unforgettable. It was a blessing and a privilege to be able to serve God alongside the team and see what He is doing through the Veres family in this country. My experience taught me that no matter where you're from or how you've come to faith, you are a family in Christ together with those who follow Him." Jennifer Gilpin

"The PCI team to Romania is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to serve God overseas, share their faith with others, explore what God is doing in His church abroad and develop their faith - and have a lot of fun doing it! Why not apply and see how God will work through the team this year? 'Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!' (1 Chr 16:24)" John McCracken
