Vision: 
The vision of Christar is to cultivate Christ-honoring transformation in communities where He is yet to be worshiped. Our mission is to glorify God by establishing churches among least-reached Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and other Asians worldwide. Christar works in over 25 countries in Asia, N. Africa, the Middle East and also among refugee groups in Europe and North America. Many Christar teams serve communities in a variety of ways during the process of church planting, including TESOL, Business as Mission, IT, medical work, sports, Bible instruction, community development, environmental projects, arts, youth ministry, teaching, and refugee relief and rescue ministries. Our vision is to see families, neighborhoods, villages and cities transformed as the gospel is shared and churches are formed.
Describe the types of ministry opportunities your agency will offer to Urbana 12 participants: 
Christar offers both short- and long-term opportunities. Christar will offer short-term opportunities of two months to two years which usually include some teaching of English classes. Christar will also facilitate internships for TESOL or Intercultural Studies majors. In the area of long-term work, which in most cases requires the study of a foreign language, we will offer opportunities for ministry primarily in evangelism and discipleship but also in TESOL, Business as Mission, IT, medical work, sports, teaching in Bible schools or international schools, community development, environmental projects, arts, music, youth ministry, refugee relief and social justice.
