Ever dream of living in Europe? Doing missions abroad? Serving in a coffee house? Or are you wanting to get first hand experience in international missions? Come gain insight into a business as missions ministry. An Tobar Nua is a Christian outreach café located in the heart of Galway City's trendy Westend district. Our 15,000 square foot facility houses the café, as well as a Christian bookshop, the Emmaus Scripture School, and An Tobar Nua Counseling Center. Voted by Galway's youth as one of the top youth-friendly businesses, there are a variety of opportunities for team members to actively make a difference in the lives of the locals by turning daily interactions as simple as serving a cup of coffee into lasting relationships.
Foundation in Christ Ministries offers a Mission Experience Volunteer program to young adults, through An Tobar Nua. The program not only gives participants the opportunity to live and volunteer in Ireland, but also to be directly involved in the Irish culture. Volunteers work full time in Foundation In Christ Ministries, Ltd.'s Irish youth charity, which involves volunteering in the cafe and also assisting in our youth outreach retreats throughout the year. Our youth outreach events are attended by the local students and teach foundational building blocks for their faith as well as providing a loving environment to discuss issues such as addictions, relationships, and bullying.
An Tobar Nua is committed to encouraging people of all denominations in an ongoing, trusting relationship with Jesus Christ through their own faith communities. The team is interdenominational/ecumenical and consists of Catholic and non-Catholic Christians working together to share Christ’s love in a community-focused, no-pressure setting. We believe that your calling can be lived out through your skills and gifts. Mission Experience Volunteers will gain cross-cultural experience in an environment where God is at work every day! No prior experience is necessary; all that's required is a heart to see people grow in their relationship with Christ and a willingness to step out in faith to seek prayer and financial support. Mission Experience Volunteer commitments typically last six months to a year, beginning in January or July of each year and include on-site housing.
