For nearly 30 years, TEAR has provided our supporters, volunteers and partner churches with the opportunity and privilege to visit the amazing work of our partners through our Development Education Experience Program (DEEP) trips.
TEAR’s DEEP trips are about going DEEPer with TEAR’s partners, seeing their amazing work for yourself, hearing stories of hope and challenge directly from marginalised but resilient communities, and allowing God to speak to you about what it looks like for you to make a response to poverty and injustice in your own context.
TEAR’s DEEPs do not require you to build something, paint something, run a children’s program, visit an orphanage, preach a sermon or fix something. We leave that to the locals.
The main tasks you will do on a DEEP with TEAR is taking time out to listen, pray, see and learn about what God is doing through the church in marginalised communities around the world and reflect on how God is calling you to personally respond.
