Mission Trips, both domestic and foreign, are often life changing for those who give as well as those who receive.
Mission Trips are offered each year to give members the opportunity to grow in their own discipleship and work with people locked in incredible poverty and with those who have dedicated their lives to serving the poorest of the poor.
These trips have the potential to profoundly impact and shape the lives of all the participants by deepening and broadening their understanding of the God we serve and how He is working in the world and motivating them to continue serving locally. The 2013 mission trips are listed below.
