God grows us as we move to join His great work!
Our MISSION TRIPS are built to come alongside an established organization in an effort to encourage, support and physically assist with their mission. Most trips include a combination of labor, relational, and evangelism work. These trips include long hours, hard work, and an opportunity to learn from those you are serving. Our VISION TRIPS are designed to help students explore a potential call to full time missionary work. Participants see missions work up close, encounter a new culture, and spend quality time with current missionaries. Our EXPOSURE TRIPS are meant to open students’ eyes to global issues that they may otherwise never see firsthand. This firsthand experience draws us closer to the Father as we begin to understand His heart for the world beyond our doorstep, and helps us become lifetime advocates of these new exposures.
