Mission Trips.

And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone…” Mark 16:15 NLT


International missions trips are just one of the ways that we get to move God’s Kingdom forward all over the world. Each year several teams from theChapel prepare together, and travel out of the country. The work varies from construction to education to programs for children. The difference it makes to the people we serve is incredible, but perhaps the most lasting change happens for those who go on the trip. There’s something about being out of your day-to-day environment, serving people who despite challenges and difficult living conditions have a joyful heart and an eager desire to know Jesus


Another way to invest in international missions is through giving. We have confidence that our giving is producing real change because we give where we go. We don’t send any of your giving where we do not have a personal connection and “boots on the ground.” Our mission teams pave the way for effective ministry internationally, and you can be a part by giving or going.
