Mission Trips

Is this your year to GO?

We are on a mission to love people as we discover and live out our role in God’s story. One way we can do that is by going on a mission trip. We may think that a trip is about what God is going to do through us, but really it’s more about what God is going to do in us so that we more fully live out our own role in God’s mission every day. God tends to work in us through trips in three primary ways, and in your decision whether to GO, we encourage you to think if you are open to God moving in you in these ways.

First, a mission trip is a way to grow your vision of who God is. As you love on orphans who have been given a new family in Jesus, you will witness the true power of God’s love. As you wrestle with the reality of poverty and brokenness in the world, you will grow in your sense of our great need for Jesus.

Second, a mission trip is a way to see your own culture and life through the lens of another culture. As you work alongside a church in another place and culture, you will be inspired and challenged to grow in how you live out your faith in our own culture.

Third, a mission trip is a way for the church in one part of the world to partner long-term with the church in another part of the world. Mission trips are costly, and this cost is high if only for a short-term impact. But when we are open to God moving in us, a trip can be a catalyst for building relationships and long-term commitments with transformative power and eternal impact.
