Adult Trips (18+)

Maybe you're thinking, "Why should I go halfway around the world when there is plenty of help still needed in my area?"  When you go outside of your comfort zone, you will see the world with new eyes, you will meet Jesus, and you can bring your friends!  Plus you will be helping to "raise the prayer temperature" for our Unreached People Groups that do not have access to the gospel.  Jesus calls us to go and be His hands and feet. 

Contact the specific trip leader for more information.

Family Friendly Trips

We believe that mission trips grow our families in ways that no high dollar vacation or sports team or tech camp can. At Grace Fellowship, we want to teach our kids that it is truly better to give than to receive.  To spend time in places that are out of our comfort zone, and sometimes even uncomfortable, is good for our souls and our kids. Help us plant the seed of Jesus' love in our kids hearts, so they can go out and give it others. Family trips have varying age requirements, please check carefully!
