There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off and squandered his wealth in wild living. After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need.
What if the prodigal son is not just one son, but a whole nation of sons and daughters? A nation once rich with a spiritual and missional vibrancy that blessed the whole world but today poor, tired and lost. Who will call these sons and daughters home to the arms of their loving Heavenly Father?
Today 99% of students in the United Kingdom can be classified as non-seekers: those who are currently not interested in or pursuing questions of truth or spirituality or God. Once the United Kingdom was a centre for evangelical thought, theology, and global mission agencies. Men and women too long to list, were hailed as public heroes and helped to pioneer Christianity in the modern world, but the generation of students filling British universities of today appear allergic to spirituality, view the church as a relic and ultimately consider Jesus irrelevant.
- Looking for a FIRST project experience? We welcome all students, no matter your experience or involvement with P2C. A heart for the Lord, desire to learn and a commitment to initiative-based evangelism are all that are required.
- Passionate about helping postmodern apathetic students encounter the Living God? Perhaps you want to grow in your evangelism skills and reach postchristian cultures. In a post-Christian culture, evangelism is not always easy. Patience, love and boldness are needed here to share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
- Love all things British? Perhaps your British heritage or Commonwealth sensibilities means you want to preach the gospel across the pond. Join us to influence a nation and the world.
