Trip Information

Vision

Join us this summer as we serve alongside long-term workers in Southeast Asia! This mid-term trip will be strategically focused on prayer, demonstrating the gospel through service, and personal evangelism. On this trip, you can expect to engage with locals, learn about their culture, serve them, offer to pray with them, and seek to share the gospel with them!

  • Receive orientation on the fascinating province that has 10 unreached people groups.
  • Practice training in Disciple-Making Movement principles to prepare you for community trips.
  • Overnight in authentic village homes, experiencing their lifestyle, work, and play.
  • Grow in your ability to live and communicate cross-culturally. See if missions are for you long-term.
  • Experience a frontier mission field where you can interact directly with unreached people groups.
  • Live in a dynamic mission community for accountability, fellowship, to expand your global vision, and increase your witness.
  • Use your unique gifts and talents to bless others.
  • Enjoy God’s amazing creation on the sea and land.

What's Expected

As team members are learning from and engaging with others, they should have a heart posture of humility and remember that culture does not make people, people make the culture. You will be part of the long-term team and are expected to participate in all their team-wide activities, events, fasts, meals, prayer meetings, work meetings, etc. Be ready to be flexible, as activities are often subject to change due to various factors.       Other expectations include:

  • In light of our value to hear and obey the Holy Spirit, we expect all team members to spend individual time in the Word and prayer outside of group prayer meetings. This may sound far too obvious, but this can be a hard discipline to carry out—especially when on a village trip. We can’t emphasize enough the need to daily abide in the Lord!
  • Come ready and eager to learn as life and ministry here are most likely different from what you’re accustomed to.
  • Be aware of your personal needs to maintain spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health. If you need something, ask.
