Mission Team: Ethiopia

Serve on the ground at the heart of a Palau ministry

The Palau Association is currently accepting applications for our 2013 mission team focused on a citywide festival campaign in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


Make a Real Difference

You are invited to join the Palau team for a short-term ministry opportunity that combines the power of compassion ministry with the festival model of evangelism. Through your involvement with the Love Ethiopia Festival with Andrew Palau, you can make a dramatic impact on the physical and spiritual need in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Ministry Overview

Drawing from many years of experience in Africa, the Palau team will help you find the right opportunity for your unique skills, provide the necessary training, and make all logistical arrangements for a safe and rewarding time of ministry. Here are some of the ways you can serve:

  • Soccer clinics:  Help conduct soccer clinics that combine the power of sports and evangelism to reach kids in the community with the Good News.
  • Evangelism teams: Conduct children’s ministry and outreaches in some of the schools and orphanages in and around the city.
  • Reading glasses clinics: Work with an ophthalmologist to fit people with reading glasses. In the future, we hope to expand to include prescription glasses.
  • Festival Ministry: All teams will have the opportunity to serve as counselors for new and recommitting believers at the festival.
