We believe our church has been given the joyous responsibility to engage our world with the gospel. One way we seek to reach our world is through short-term mission trips. Our goal is to plan strategic short-term mission trips that result in sustainable gospel impact in specific locations. It’s our hope to lock arms with missionaries and ministry partners around the globe who could use our teams in propelling the gospel forward.

Due to COVID-19, all 2020 trips have been cancelled except for the trip to Ducktown, Tennessee.
