What is a Christian Gap Year?

A term gap year usually refers to a time out of education, usually between secondary school and university or college, or sometimes the Gap Year is used to take a break between college / university and the commencing of work. Gap Years have become quite popular amoungst young people from western nations, and the Gap Year opportunities are now found all over the world.

What is a Christian Gap Year opportunity?

Christian Gap Year opportunities differ from secular gap year oppertunities, in that the work is related to the Christian faith. These days there are many Christian Gap Year opportunities, which give young people a chance to express their faith in a number of practical ways. These ways may involve administration, youth work, evangelism, working with children, working in the community, etx. Alternativly, the Christian Gap Year could innvolve having practical duties in a Christian Project in either a Western, or a Third world Country.

The Christian Gap Year enables students to take time out from studying, and it can be a valuable opportunity to mature before they relaunch themselves into an intensive study course for four long years. For those who have absolutely no idea what they want to do in the future, a Christian Gap Year will help them to discern their own strengths and weaknesses and develop personal skills for the future and perhaps find their place in the world. Gap years teach you independence and a Christian gap year is a chance to break away from home and grow up, with Christian support, and so that you can settle back into study with a new vision and perspective. Your adventures will give you a maturity and self-confidence that will stand you in good stead when applying for your new college place. You'll know more about what you want to apply for, and have more understanding of what working hard really means…. And finally…your Christian Gap year will involve meeting with other Christians from all walks of life, perhaps forming friendships that last a lifetime!

Christian Gap Year Time Commitments

The term Gap Year implies the duration of twelve months, but many Gap Year opportunities are not that long. Some Gap Year Opportunities are limited to three months, due to visa restrictions, whereas other projects are even shorter.

Many organizations also provide three-week taster programs, which will allow the prospective recruits to have a go without committing themselves for a long period of time.

Christian Gap Year Skills

Many Gap Year Opportunities do not require particular skills, but there are some where professional experience is greatly valued. Some of the larger organizations are always on the lookout for people with IT and media skills, bookkeepers, carpenters, electricians, and other building skills.

Operation Mobilisation always requires many other skills aboard their ocean going vessels Logos II and Doulos. These floating communities have a permanent need for many skills including hairdressers, catering staff, medical people, dentists, skippers, engineers, mechanics, and more.

Many skills can be also be learnt during the Gap Year program, which will inevitably look good on the CV when they person returns from their Christian Gap Year program.

Finding the opportunities

There are many organizations out there - great and small - who offer Christian Gap Year Opportunities. Finding them is not easy, but there are a few resources out there that can help you find them.

One of these resources is Year for God, a non-profit website which aims to bring together young people who are looking to serve God on a Christian Gap Year, and organizations who need these people to join them
