Go Trips

Taking the Gospel to the Nations

Gospel-Centered Multiplication

We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication. This is our mission and process for discipleship. Out of this, gospel-centered multiplication is the result of discipleship, replicating Christ in others. One of the ways we pursue and live out this discipleship trait is through our Go Trips. Every year we have the opportunity to go on a number of short-term mission trips through the church. Whether you go by yourself, with your family or with your Home Group, these trips are a great opportunity to bring the good news of the gospel to the nations.

For those interested in going on a short-term trip, we ask that you follow the guidelines below:

Dominican Republic

Ghana

In Yendi, Ghana, we work alongside Videre, a non-profit organization whose mission is to fight spiritual and physical poverty by equipping the poor with entrepreneurial skills and building gospel-centered businesses. We will disciple and teach Videre’s Business Training Curriculum to the local communities in hopes of empowering them to soon provide for their own needs and the needs of others. If you are an entrepreneur or business professional who has a desire to use your business skills and abilities to expand the kingdom of God, consider joining Videre in Ghana this summer and/or fall.

Ghana 1

August 3 – 12, 2018 | $3,200 per person

In Phase 1 of Videre's business training program (Biblical Business Principles), team members will be facilitating a small group of 3 – 4 local entrepreneurs, giving them an opportunity to learn from the local entrepreneurs and share their own personal business experiences, as well. The groups will look at the Bible to see what principles God has given them for operating their business in a way that honors Him. Groups will cover basic marketing and accounting as they create a mock business plan and present it to the class at the end of the week. After Phase 1, each program participant must complete a market research project for their own business in order to move on to the next phase of training.

United States

Throughout the U.S., we partner with and support several church planters and churches as they minister to areas of our own country, particularly in areas where there are few believers and an opposition to the gospel. This year we will join two of those partners in ministry: Godspeed Fellowship in Providence, Rhode Island, and Seven Mile Road Church in Boston, Massachusetts.

Boston

July 29 – August 4, 2018 | $1,100 per person

Sent out from The Village in 2015, Clint Patronella and his family serve with the Seven Mile Road church-planting network in Boston and have planted a church in Waltham (greater Boston).

We will also get to join Clint’s church plant for worship, fellowship and to serve them throughout the week.
