Trip Information


Join us as we go to Southeast Asia to serve goers and their kids during a retreat. Going on a Kids Care trip is not babysitting—it’s a time of impactful investment in the lives of kids whose family has sold everything to take the gospel to the ends of the earth! By spending time with these kids and students, this provides time for their parents to get necessary care, coaching, counseling, equipping/training for their ministry, and fellowship to continue in their calling. This kind of care helps them persevere on the field and stay longer! 

Through this trip, we hope to demonstrate and teach kids about the importance of studying the Bible and spending time in community with other believers.

Why Should I Go?

  • We're all called to be a part of God's plan to redeem a people for Himself from every tribe, language, tongue, and nation and this is one way to participate in His mission.
  • Providing childcare is a huge blessing to our goers by giving them some time for rest and renewal.
  • Global mission trips will help you align your heart with God’s heart for the nations.  
  • Opportunity for deeper connectivity and fellowship with other Austin Stone brothers and sisters.

What's Expected

Children who spend time in other cultures during their child development years are often referred to as “Third Culture Kids” because they're raised in a culture other than their parents’ or the culture of their country of nationality. Don’t assume that because they are goer kids that they have a personal relationship with Jesus. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your faith with the next generation!

Trip Leaders

Being a short-term mission trip leader is a rewarding experience. It makes you a part of the Great Commission, letting you respond to God’s call to the nations in a sacrificial way while also shepherding a group of people. Check out the benefits and expectations here. If you're interested in being a trip leader, you apply through the application and complete the "Trip Leader" question section.


We desire you to pursue Jesus in your daily life and grow to be more like Him. We will provide trainings that walk through abiding and resting in Jesus (John 15), ministry overview and expectations, culture, and logistics. While we can’t perfectly prepare you for everything you might encounter, we do our best to train you with everything you’d need for your trip.


  • Teams stay at the hotel where the conference is being held.
  • Team members will stay in same gendered rooms at the hotel.
  • Vans will take the team from the airport to the hotel. Once there, the team will walk everywhere.
