6,000 miles apart, young adults begin ministry on same day


Two teams of young people launched a season of ministry and discipleship at OneWay on the same day — on different continents!


As 15 young adults in the U.S. moved into OneWay’s intern housing in Naperville, Illinois, 26 young adults from eight different African nations moved into our Livingstone School of Missions in Accra, Ghana.


Just as the stateside interns will be spending the next seven weeks serving in areas like communications, evangelism, video production and missions advocacy, the Ghana students will receive theological training and practical ministry experience aimed at raising them up for missions.


These 26 young adults from nations like Cameroon, Liberia and Zambia will be participating in the school of mission’s one-month introductory training. This includes serving in urban missions as well as assisting new church plants in Ghana.


Both groups share stories of God’s provision. In 2021, after OneWay staff spent 40 days in prayer to seek God’s guidance in finding a new building for their U.S. headquarters, God provided a new building for OneWay Africa! With the addition of this new ministry center, there is now space for student housing, a training center, offices and a prayer room. This makes it possible for all the Ghana students to live on site, which was a challenge before.


On top of God’s provision of OneWay Africa’s headquarters, the Lord also provided a new U.S. ministry center where interns began working last week. He also supplied two more rental houses for U.S. interns — one in the same neighborhood as our first women’s staff housing, enabling all of the female staff and interns to be in close community with one another.


Praise God for His movement and provision in both Accra and Naperville!
