Mission Trips for Members & High School Students
We send members on mission trips for many reasons, but primarily we send people because as children of God, we are sent with his amazing message forgiveness of sins through Jesus.
Mission trips can be life-changing for you and has the potential to dramatically impact your devotional life and relationship with Jesus.
We pray mission trips will:
- Strengthen your faith.
- Build relationships among fellow Christians.
- Give you a larger perspective of our world.
- Teach or encourage you to grow in your personal devotional and prayer time.
- Provide a way for you to physically serve our world.
- Teach or encourage you to give up worldly comforts and focus on God for a time.
- Allow opportunities for you to practice sharing your faith.
- Develop your individual gifts and talents.
- Prepare you for sharing Jesus both at home as a missionary or while helping another church.
Please note: All dates assume 2 days for travel each direction. Some trips may be shortened depending on mode of travel. Final details will be given upon trip assignment. There are opportunities for all of these that are available for adults to participate as well. Registration will open shortly for adults.
