Every day is a mission. We share our faith and pray for people as a lifestyle, no matter where we are.
But part of our vision is to, “spread the gospel to the ends of the earth.” So every summer, we take some time out of our vacations and focus on the ends of the earth, the parts we don’t see every day.
International Missions Trips
When we can, we go overseas. Our students have been to Guatemala, India (twice!), and Ecuador. We do village ministry, street evangelism, and kids’ programs. We always partner with a local ministry overseas so we can be most effective and so we know that people are in good hands when we leave.
Love Packages: Local Trip with International Impact
When we can’t get overseas, we partner with a great group called Love Packages, in Butler, Illinois. Love Packages collects used Christian literature, and outdated Christian magazines or Sunday School materials, organizes, packs, and ships it to pastors and evangelists overseas who desperately need it. Working with Love Packages means we get to help spread the gospel to the ends of the earth, without having to raise thousands of dollars for each of us to get on a plane.
Part of every week includes packing a 20-foot shipping container that takes tons (literally) of resources overseas. We actually get to help send off bibles, Sunday School materials, and more to pastors and evangelists in India, Thailand, South Africa, and more. You can learn more about our Love Packages trips here.
Feed My Starving Children: Social Justice in Jesus’ Name
Throughout the year we partner with Feed My Starving Children—a national organization that packs and ships life-saving food to children all over the world. We usually do a Saturday evening shift for a couple of hours, and it’s a lot of fun. Check out our FMSC page for more videos and the next available trip.
