About Cafe 1040
LEADING A GENERATION TO TELL THE STORY OF JESUS WHERE IT HAS NEVER BEEN TOLD
Cafe 1040’s mission was formed around the reality that there are billions of people without access to the story of Jesus. God chooses to use His people to change this reality – to tell the story of Jesus among all peoples. So we asked, what can we do to help get more missionaries in the places where they are most needed? And who will these missionaries be?
We believe young adults have a strong desire and unique ability to complete the Great Commission. Because of this, everything we do is focused toward mobilizing the emerging generation of missionaries from the pews of our churches to unreached people all over the world.
This generation needs to see it for themselves, so we invite young adults to come to walk alongside long-term missionaries to see what their life could look like telling the story of Jesus among an unreached people group. We run our missions mentorship program among people groups from the 10/40 Window currently in three locations: North Africa, Central Asia, and Europe. While there, students are immersed in cross-cultural living, language, history, religion, and spiritual discipleship – all for the purpose of equipping the next generation of missionaries with the clarity and confidence needed to understand how their skills, passions, talents, and abilities can play a part in taking the story of Jesus where it has never been told.

This location is ideal for someone desiring to explore their calling among a Frontier People Group in Central Asia.

This location is ideal for someone who has a heart for Muslim people and is looking to understand what long-term work looks like in a Muslim context and deeply established Arab culture. There is a higher emphasis on security at this location. This base accepts students 21 and older.
This location is ideal for someone interested in working with Muslim immigrant populations in one of the most diverse cities in the world. With almost 200 nationalities living in this city, you will be exposed to ministry among unreached people groups living and working outside their home countries.

What Is The Benefit Of Award?
Since most missions organizations use a process called deputation or support raising to fund their mission effort, we train you how to do that to cover program costs. Our staff will teach you how to raise a support team and mentor you through the support raising process. For our overseas locations, spring and fall teams will raise $8500, while the summer teams will raise $9000. For our Southeastern US location, spring and fall teams will raise $7500, while the summer teams will raise $8000.
