Mission Trips 2012

Mission trips are one way to participate in the accomplishment of the Great Commission.  If you've never been "Out of the Shire," a phrase we use at Grace Evan that means "to step out of our comfort zone," will you consider stepping out in faith and engage in God's plan to reach the unreached?  Will you trust God to equip you with all you need to proclaim the gospel to the lost and minister to the needs of others?  Mission trips will change your perspective of the role you have in God's kingdom. 

If you are thinking about going this year, please contact the trip leader and make plans to attend the informational meeting, then visit the "Mission Team Resource" page where you'll find information about passports, immunizations, forms and other resources about traveling to your point of destination.
