Nicosia, Cyprus

The Mediterranean island of Cyprus is a country of contrasts between a Turkish Muslim north and a Greek Orthodox south. The capital Nicosia is one of the oldest cities in the Western world, rich history and culture. In 1974, a Turkish invasion divided Cyprus into Greek and Turkish sides with separate governments. Once closed off, there are now several crossing points for exploring the Turkish side of Cyprus. The Cru ministry is based on the southern Greek side of Nicosia. Cyprus is at the meeting point between Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and Nicosia is a diverse and very international city. Approximately 10,000 students study in Nicosia, primarily Cypriot and European. Students are drawn to Nicosia for its international flavor, amazing history, wonderful Mediterranean climate, and beautiful beaches.

What kind of ministry will I be doing?

You will be part of helping launch a Cru student movement at University of Nicosia! A Movement happened in the book of Acts and can also happen at UNic by the power of the Holy Spirit and through students who have a heart for God and people. You will be pioneering a new movement by committing 5-10 hours each week to praying for the campus, talking with students about God using Soularium (or other evangelism tools), looking for Christian students who have a heart for God and evangelism, and challenging them to join the adventure of starting a spiritual movement at their school. You will have a coach to walk alongside you through this and help you grow as a disciple and a leader. And like Paul in the book of Acts, when you leave a movement will continue on!
