Mission Trips

After a two year hiatus due to Covid-19, we are very much looking forward to getting back to in-person visits and serving alongside our global and local partners in 2022. We hope you will prayerfully consider supporting and joining us for one of these trips.

 

NOTE: At this time, all participants on international trips are required to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19.

MALAWI, AFRICA
June 3–15

Adults (high school students if accompanied by parent/adult)


Travel to the town of Chitipa in northern Malawi where we will help lead and participate in a camp for our sponsored students (high school, tech, and college). On our vision day, we will visit one of our many projects in Malawi such as a rural school to see a finished dorm, a solar project providing electricity, and/or a water project.  We will also have an opportunity to enjoy the landscape of this beautiful country and engage with the people of this “warm heart of Africa”. 

COSTA RICA
July 3-7

Families (children age 11 or older)


Shalom Community Church, with over 800 members, is one of our partners in Costa Rica.  The team will stay at the church and serve by helping with onsite projects, as well as having time to engage with community.  In the past, projects have included building greenhouses, landscape clean-up, painting, etc. Details about the specific project will be posted once available from our partner. Since this serving trip will be completed by Thursday AM, families have the option to return to Atlanta or plan to stay for additional touring in the area through the weekend on their own. 

KIDZ2LEADERS – CAMP HOPE
July 9–15

All Ages


Kidz2Leaders is a program that provides stability, opportunity and a Christian community for children of inmates to break the cycle of incarceration.  Camp Hope - Cornerstone, for ages 8-12, is the entry point into this program. Volunteers are needed to serve at this week-long overnight camp which is based at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia.  

LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY RETREAT
July 24-30

Families (children age 4 or older)/ Young Adults


This ministry is a faith-based non-profit that exists to strengthen families living through childhood cancer by inviting them to enjoy a week at the beach, at no cost them.  As a volunteer-partner family or individual, you will serve one of these families during that week, while also enjoying your own family time at the beach. Enjoy a week filled with fun, sun, faith, worship, and caring. Please do not sign up for this event on the Lighthouse website, as we already have a group registration started. 

INDIA
October 9-18

Women’s Trip


Through our partnership with JKPS, we will be visiting Mahima Homes which are aftercare havens that provide specialized care, safety, and security to minor survivors of commercial sex trade, to facilitate their complete healing and rehabilitation.  As well they provide for children in need of care and protection under the custody of the Child Welfare Committee. The team will also participate in various activities with staff and girls at the home, as well as visiting some “freedom” businesses that give women other opportunities for employment.
