Mission Statement

The Mission of the House is where Word and action meet.  This Mission isn’t individual but Community based.

The centre of Christian life is Community. Where we come together to share our gifts, where we come  together to meet others, God and ourselves.

1 Timothy (6:18) asks us to “be generous and willing to share” and with each year that instruction is fulfilled in the Mission House.

Through community the Mission House brings different countries, backgrounds and cultures together for    10 months. These 10 months help plant seeds of change in the volunteer. Yet the Mission House  recognises that each and every person is unique and as such so will their goals and experiences reflect this. The Mission House isn’t here to convert, nor is it here to speed up change. The Mission House is at it’s best when it’s supporting young people in exploring themselves, others & God. We give youth the chance to explore, find and cross their boarders during the year, while having first hand contact with a side of the city which often gets forgotten and ignored by society.

This Mission is made possible because of the partnership between the Mission House & The Council for World Mission EuropeProtestantse Diaconie Amsterdam, Lutherse Diaconie Amsterdam,  & The Protestant Church in Amsterdam (PKA). These organisations support the house financially, with training, direction & friendly faces! The Mission House is also part of the European Voluntary Service (EVS).
