There are plenty of opportunities to serve right in your back yard,

or at least close to it. From helping refugees settle into a new community to promoting fresh starts for those in tough situations, find your calling locally.

Short-Term Mission Trips

Each year we join with our local and global partners across the world on short-term mission trips to join their efforts on the ground. Teams help with education, evangelism, medical assistance, exposure and more, but moreover, the ultimate goal is to bring people across the globe to know Jesus. Questions? Email [email protected].
