Mission Trips & Cultural Immersion

Crossing borders and encountering our brothers and sisters around the world is an opportunity for a mutual exchange of the joy that comes from the Gospel.  We not only evangelize, but are evangelized!

You are already a missionary–you became one when you were baptized. God continues to invite us to participate in the mission of love.

Although most of our mission work of sharing God’s love happens at home, work and in our local neighborhoods and communities, being able to step out of our own culture and context can help us appreciate God’s love in a whole new way.
