Experience Cross-Cultural Service

During our trips, our teams meet community leaders who share about their national history, culture, language and society, as well as their current issues and challenges. Participants come alongside other local volunteers in specific projects and programs and serve together. We also look for opportunities to worship together as well as share leisurely moments to build relationships and deeper understanding.

Explore God’s Mission

Through our training before going participants have the opportunity to learn about cultures, consider world issues that are oppressing people in the world today, and how our faith in Jesus moves us to engage with God’s mission to bless all the families of the world.

Express the Gospel

Team members are encouraged during the pre-trip preparation to discover their personal “good news” stories as they reflect on their life journey through struggle, breakthroughs, and transformation. During the trip participants are encouraged to share formally and informally those stories through interpreters. Service opportunities and projects we participate in are carried out with local community volunteers as an expression of global collaboration.
