We are excited to announce the 2018 Serving Trip Dates for Faith Journeys. For the first time, we are releasing dates for all 3 locations at once and we hope that knowing the dates and details much further in advance will help you plan well and align with whichever adventure the Lord might be calling you to participate in.
Ecuador Serving Trip - May 29-June 5 (Application Deadline Feb 16)
This is a 7 Day family-friendly trip where we will head to the edges of the Amazon River basin and join a full-time team at Ninawachi Mission School. We will learn from these missionary leaders as together we connect with the local villagers. The goal of Ninawachi is to raise up indigenous Christian leaders, plant churches and help meet physical needs as well as spiritual ones. There are several indigenous communities in this remote area that have not yet experienced the love of Christ and we are excited to be a part of sharing the Gospel with them (in deed and in word). If you have an adventurous spirit and want to grow your evangelism gift, this trip is perfect for you. Find out more.
Ghana Serving Trip - July 5-15 (Application Deadline Feb 23)
Over 50,000 children are put to work in Ghana as fishermen, and it is estimated that 60% of them were sold and/or kidnapped into this role. Thankfully, our partner, City of Refuge Ministries (CORM) helps to offer safe housing, education, and holistic (for their body, mind, and spirit) restoration to many of these children once they are rescued. Our team will offer love and encouragement to these children as well as the staff and teachers who invest in them every day. If you have a heart for children and want to see what restoration in Christ can look like, this is the trip for you. This opportunity all happens on the 24 acres of land owned by CORM and is a safe and secure way to introduce your family to missions. Find out more.
Israel Study Trip - Oct 4-14 (Application Deadline Jun 27)
This family-friendly 10-day mission trip is a unique blend of studying and serving together. We will walk where Jesus walked and learn about the vast history of this land and also spend time praying for and serving with the local church in Israel. The first half of our time will be one of discipleship as we explore the land, customs and culture of the Bible. We will visit over 50 holy sites including the Garden Tomb, the Sea of Galilee, and Mount Beatitudes. After our study time, we will volunteer alongside our partners in Jerusalem to help further their relationships in the community, Help is needed at the local nursing home, serving the Ethiopian Jewish community, and visiting Holocaust survivors bearing love and food parcels. Find out more.
