Trip By: The Center for Short Term Missions
Location: United States, Northern America
When: Customizable: Jan-Dec 2019
Each participant will EXPERIENCE AN INTERACTIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, EXPERIENCE THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST IN ACTION and SHARE THE LOVE OF JESUS WITH SOMEONE WHO IS LOST.
We have so enjoyed serving this coal mining town in Kentucky with camps for the children, work projects for the church and the local community and reaching out to the town through creative outreach.
Free four wheeler washes, smoke detector outreach, kids camps, painting projects at the school, landscaping work at the church, home repair and helping serve free meals have all provided excellent opportunities for us to share Jesus.
In planning this trip with you, we hope to minister to you and others by:
Developing spiritual life skills in your students: By focusing each trip on the basics, spiritual disciplines that are necessary both on and off the field, we will help reinforce that which you are currently striving to instill in your students. In this way we serve each participant.
Advancing the work of local ministries: By providing thoroughly equipped people resources, we will be able to offer encouragement and support for those missionaries already on the field. In this way we serve the world.
Saving you time: By handling trip logistics, we will free you up to focus on the discipleship of your students before, during, and after your trip. In this way we serve the local church.
