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- to 10-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 7- to 10- day trip is a full immersion into inner city life. Learn about poverty, various religions, children’s ministry, and street ministry.
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 6-week trip, Africa School of Missions in White River, Mpumalanga is our base for ministry. 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 outreaches, clinics, schools, orphanages, and churches. Year after year God changes hearts and lives in beautiful South Africa.
Located in Southeast Asia, the Philippines islands are diverse. Mountainous terrains, thick forests, plains, and ocean coastline make it one of the most biodiverse countries in the word. Asia Pacific Theological Seminary in Baguio City is our base for ministry on this 6-week trip. We will do ministry in churches, public schools, and an orphanage. We will work among streets kids and in villages among Muslims. We will meet with those using business for missions and those working to fight human trafficking. God is moving in the Philippines!
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!
