2014 Mission Trips

"Then his disciples said to each other,  'Could someone have brought him food? 'My food,' said Jesus, 'is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Do you not say, Four months more and then the harvest?" I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest." John 4:33-35

The journey has begun and we have work to do. Will you go? Jesus tells us the fields are ripe for harvest! 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?  

If you are thinking about going this year, please contact the trip leader and make plans to attend the informational meetings. Then visit the "mission team resource" page where you'll find information about passports, immunizations, commitment (scholarship) forms and release of liability and medical release forms and other resources about traveling to your point of destination.
