NATIVE AMERICAN RESERVATION // USA
We begin here. Before we reach those across the world, we reach the people right here in the Dakotas. Most recently, we have worked with Standing Rock Reservation (ND) and Pine Ridge Reservation (SD). On this 7 day trip, we partner with established organizations to reach these communities. Be exposed to the Spirit of God moving on these reservations and see the power of compassion ministry.
INNER CITY // USA
Metropolitan areas offer incredible sights of massive skyscrapers, vibrant lights, and the hustle and bustle of city living. Alongside of this, you will find diverse religions, poverty, and rampant drug and sex trafficking. This 10- day trip is a full immersion into inner city life. Learn about poverty, various religions, children’s ministry, and street ministry.
AFRICA // South Africa
South Africa is the southernmost country in Africa. It is called the “rainbow nation” for its multicultural diversity, yet inequality and poverty are prevalent. During this 5-week trip we will be hosted by Judea Harvest at Africa School of Missions in White River, Mpumalanga. From there, we reach out to the surrounding communities to serve in hands-on, practical ways, and to boldly share the message of Christ. We work with local clinics, sharing in school assemblies, ministering to the children and workers at orphanages, leading services for Youth, and leading local church services. Students will have the chance to share testimonies, preach, lead worship, and pray with members of the local communities. Children are also a big part of our time in South Africa because of the devastation caused by the AIDS epidemic. This translates into helping with feeding programs, after school activities, and loving on lots of smiling kids with local ministries such as — Hands at Work, Ten Thousand Homes, and Masoyi Home Based Care. Year after year God changes hearts and lives in beautiful South Africa. Cliff jumping, white water rafting, an African Safari and more await you on this incredible journey.
ASIA // Philippines
Mountainous terrain, thick forests, plains, and ocean coastline makes Southern Asia and the Philippines one of the most bio-diverse areas in the world. We will partner with Asia Pacific Theological Seminary, which is located in the mountains of Baguio City. Here students will get an introduction to the culture, language, ministry training, and hear about incredible Filipino ministries. The time in Manila will be spent helping with orphan care, children’s feeding programs, and even some education opportunities within the slums of the capital city. Davao will bring opportunities to Teach Values with school aged kids, outreach to muslim communities, and even prison ministry. Some other activities will be sailing on the South China Sea, Beach outreach in Palawan, snorkeling, and spending time at some of the most beautiful beaches in the World. This trip will bring you amazing opportunities to minister among the friendly Island nation of the Philippines.
HIMALAYAS // Nepal
Nepal is a mountainous country above India filled with joyful people, colorful prayer flags, and is home to the Himalayan Mountains including Mt. Everest. The majority of the students time will be spent in Kathmandu living and working among both the Buddhist and Hindu populations living together in the capital city. We will partner with several existing ministries including Project Rescue, Envision Builders, The Learning Center, and Talk Time. Talk Time is an English outreach where college students come together to practice their English, learn about American culture, and share their Nepali culture with our students. They will also get to trek out to some remote villages and do some sustainability and work projects and encourage the few believers that live there. Climbing mountains, learning culture, teaching English, lots of tea times with Nepalis, exploring the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu, and hiking to remote villages to build and encourage.
ISRAEL // Holy Land Tour
The Holy Land pilgrimage is the trip of a lifetime. On this 10- to 12-day trip, we walk in the footsteps of Christ and experience sites of the Bible - the Galilee region, the Negev Desert, and Jerusalem. Take a jeep ride through the Golan Heights, sleep in the desert, ride camels, walk the Via Dolorosa, enjoy a sunrise on the Sea of Galilee, enjoy local cuisine, and so so much more! Watch the Bible come alive!
