Short-Term 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 Short-Term 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.

United States

Throughout the United States, we partner with and support several churches: City on a Hill Church in Boston, Epiphany Fellowship Church in Philadelphia and Apostles Church in New York City. Our partnerships have a simple goal—to make disciples. We also get to visit these churches and encourage them in ministry, as well as be encouraged by their work.
