Youth Service Trips

Loving our neighbors as ourselves — every person, everywhere — is a central part of the Christian faith.

But without experiences that help us learn to serve and love others well, we'll miss out on what Jesus called life to the full.

Mission trips breathe new life into your faith and introduce you to God’s heart of compassion, mercy, and justice for people all over the world.

Short Term Trips
U.S. and International Christian Service Trips

Why serve together on group mission trips?

Whether it’s cost, timing, logistics, or something more, there will always be reasons not to go. But, ultimately, it comes down to whether or not we think it’s worth the effort.

Will this trip make a difference in the lives of the people we meet? Will it be meaningful for my group? Why not just serve in our own community?

We believe these experiences can be extremely beneficial, both for those who go and the people they come alongside. But, ultimately, what makes a trip meaningful is taking the time to care about how we approach our short term mission trip. When we come with humility—serving where needed while seeing the people in front of us as equals and image-bearers of God—it’s hard for it to go wrong.

Whether you’re seeking a U.S. or international missions experience (for college students, youth, adults, or multi-age groups), step out of your normal life and learn what it means to love and serve others like Jesus. Dignify people in difficult life circumstances and learn how to care for those on the margins everywhere.

If One Part Suffers: Our Commitment to Fighting Racism and Injustice
In seeking to DO JUSTICE, love mercy, and walk humbly with God, we feel compelled to continue this work until there is an end to racism, inequality, and unjust systems that are the opposite of the heart of Jesus.

Is Missions about Social Justice or Evangelism?
When I look at the life of Jesus, his example seems clear. He didn't just care about people's spiritual condition, but he cared about their social and physical needs as well.
