MISSION TRIPS & RETREATS
Are you prepared to:
· Mature and grow in your faith?
· Live out your calling as a follower of Jesus?
Do you want to:
· See the image of God in every person?
· Contribute to the sustainability of local, ongoing ministry efforts?
Jesus called His disciples to the farthest corners of the known world, and He calls us who are His children to do likewise. God chooses to use people left behind in the home country to support those who go out practically and spiritually.
But if you talk to missionaries, seeing the Spirit working through those on a mission trip is so rewarding and encouraging. Serving in the mission field together has a way of fusing bonds that can last a lifetime.
Starting out as strangers…yet ending up as true brothers and sisters.
SHORT-TERM MISSION TRIPS
Mission trips are defined as learning experiences and intentional service that help adults and youth from varying backgrounds love and serve others like Jesus.
Functioning as a “receiving facility” for short-term mission teams from churches and other groups, our Mission House exemplifies our goal as a ministry.
The purpose of the Mission House:
· Receive teams from around the world to work with local churches
· Conduct social outreach and evangelism events
· Perform Christian education and training
· Construction projects
In military terms, retreat has very negative connotations associated with it and signifies defeat. But when it is viewed in spiritual terms, everything changes.
With his disciples, Jesus would often “retreat” from the multitudes for times of spiritual restoration and instruction. He beckons those who are weary and heavy laden to come to Him for rest.
Was this something that only applied to those in the early church?
It can be said that in today’s day and age, we need time to recharge away from our hectic schedules even more than in Bible times. Going to the mountains, beach, or desert can uplift our spirits and help us keep the proper priorities in our lives. And there, in those still moments, we see our God in His full glory.
The Mission House features:
· Secure protected facility
· Gated parking
· Areas for worship and devotions
· Full kitchen
· Dormitory style lodging for up to 25 people
Perfect for a men’s or women’s retreat, wellness and restoration are right around the corner!
