The Mission of the church is missions. The Mission of missions is the church.
Our desire is to make disciples of all nations, and we do this by partnering together with our international church plants. When you head out on a short-term missions trip, you are not just supporting, encouraging, and equipping another church, but you are growing in Christ yourself and learning from people of other cultures. We send out short-term teams every year to help with construction projects, camps, ministry training, and other various projects. Serving overseas helps us to step out of our comfort zones to partner with our international brothers and sisters to share the gospel of Christ. We hope you can join us!
|St. Vincent Construction/Act Like Men team|
|Location:||St. Vincent Island|
|Dates:||November 2019 (exact dates TBD)|
|Campus:||Crystal Lake Campus|
|Contact:||Kent Jaeger ([email protected]) or Mike Ruge ([email protected])|
|Purpose:||Harvest St. Vincent is continuing to grow their reach and influence on the island. They have outgrown their current meeting location and have secured land to build a new church building. This team will help with construction efforts to lay the foundation for the new building and will also spend time discipling the men of the church. As Act Like Men has had a huge impact on the men of our church, we want to bring that to St. Vincent to invest in and grow godly men, husbands and fathers.|
|Medical Missions Trip|
|Location:||Trivandrum and Sengottai, India|
|Dates:||October 4-15, 2019|
|Contact:||Sandy Song ([email protected]); www.developingworkers.com|
|Purpose:||This team will be partnering with an organization called One Child Matters and Mission of Mercy India. We will be serving the students of Bombay Day School, Junnar Boys Home and Cornell Memorial School. There will be 5 days of mobile clinics offering nutritional assessments, child safety evaluations (CSI), medical exams, deworming, vitamins, dental hygiene training, medication, and spiritual counseling. We will have one free day at the end of our trip to relax and/or explore. Our ultimate goal is to bring Christ to the communities we serve and to encourage the local church and staff to carry out the Great Commission. We will be including local pastors and church leaders to serve alongside us. Our CSI training will continue in these cities as we strive to bring hope and help to young people caught in the throes of domestic violence or trafficking, helping them see the value of who they are in Christ.|
