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. Our student teams help with education, evangelism, medical assistance, and more, but the ultimate goal is to bring people across the globe to know Jesus.

Poland // High School
Jun. 23 – Jul. 7, 2020

We will be returning to Poland for a fourth year to work alongside our friends at Josiah Venture! We will be partnered with a youth group at a Polish church, and together we will put on an English camp for students in their community. This is a challenging, amazing trip for any high school student who loves Jesus, knows the gospel, and wants a front-row seat to see what missions looks like in a new generation. This trip requires hard work and stepping out of your comfort zone–but is incredibly rewarding! English-speaking high school students are the only ones who can do this ministry—so we need you!

Any student who has participated in two stateside Porch trips is eligible to apply for this trip.
Application Deadline: Jan. 31, 2020
Estimated Cost: $2,000-$2,400 (depending on flights)


Atlanta // High School
May 29 – Jun. 6

We will be working with Encompass World Partners for the first time this year in one of the most ethnically diverse geographic regions of the country! The four corners of the globe will unfold before us and offer a unique multi-sensory experience in the heart of Atlanta. You will gain a new understanding of the religions of the world and will learn how to cross-cultural barriers with the hope of Jesus. You’ll become more solid in your own Biblical worldview and have opportunities to serve in impactful ministry on the ground. We are thrilled to be offering this trip this summer and think it will truly be a life-altering experience!

Any student who has finished 8th -12th grade is invited to apply for this trip.

Vacation Bible Camp at Christ Community Chapel is an opportunity for elementary age students to hear the Gospel through lessons, games, skits, and songs! This camp has a huge impact in the Hudson community and is one of the church’s largest outreach events of the year. Our students will have the opportunity to serve the local church by helping with VBC every morning. In the afternoons, the students will break into service teams and go to different local ministry partners to serve in the community. These opportunities could range from remodeling homes, landscaping yards, serving meals, cleaning, ministering to the elderly, etc. Exact details of the work will become clear in the month before the trip.

Any student who has finished 6th or 7th grade is invited to apply for this trip.
