Josh & Carissa Bialik
Directors of PackYourBags

Hey Visitors!

My wife and I have led the PackYourBags Experience for the last three years. In that time, we have traveled thousands of miles with our students. It has been an incredible honor to not only lead these teams around the world but also watch them grow closer to Christ through the journey. 

Our heart is helping others find their identity in Christ. Part of this process is helping people realize what they are passionate about and the areas God has already gifted them in. We desire to see them walk away from this year with a deeper relationship with Jesus, a love for a lost world, and tools in their belt to take on whatever God has called them too. 

We believe that traveling is the best education and gives the students the opportunities they need to expand their worldview and gain the life skills needed to succeed. 

*A little about us: We both graduated with degrees in Intercultural Studies & Biblical Studies and our heart is reaching the nations for Christ. We feel especially passionate about working with Unreached People Groups.We also love exploring National Parks, local coffee shops, and spending time with friends!


Zach & April crowe

Zach & April are gifted leaders who have a heart for the nations. They both graduated with B.A. degrees in Intercultural Studies & Biblical Studies and spent a summer working in Northern India. With an evident heart for the broken, they desire to help others experience the beautiful world around them. They are passionate about seeing God move in the lives of students through discipleship. We are thrilled to have this fun, passionate, and caring couple be a part of our leadership team!

"PackYourBags was the program that God's sovereignty used to show us both what our lives would one day be. We are so excited to be a part of what God is doing in the lives of so many young people through what PackYourBags has to offer them. We look forward to this opportunity to help lead others into truly knowing who they are as individuals by deepening their knowledge of Jesus Christ, experiencing the world around them, and creating friendships that will last a life-time. And what a joy it will be to have some fun and travel the world!"
