All throughout Scripture, we see God’s heart to make Himself known among the nations, that ALL people might know Him. Missions exist to advance the Gospel and make His name known in places where it is not known. Whether you decide to take a short term trip or go somewhere long term, we want to provide you an opportunity to take that next step to be part of God’s mission wherever you go.
Short Term Teams are sent to serve alongside our missionary partners and church planters. People are the mission, not projects. While projects are often a necessary platform to share the Gospel with locals, empowering and equipping the local church to reach the unchurched is the main goal of our trips. We desire to build meaningful relationships with our field partners in order to have long-term sustainability and a far more lasting impact. These trips are one of the best discipleship opportunities at our church. A lifetime commitment to the nations often begins on a Short Term Trip.
A nonprofit started a few years ago in Haiti by Becky Graves. Their goal is to equip local Christians to reach their own people through showing Christ’s love in action through community development, economic development, and church-ministry development. We partner with them by taking several trips a year to come alongside them and build relationships with the Haiti Awake staff and children in their care.Learn More
The Bridge Church sent them as missionaries to Spain 4 years ago. They teach at an international school right outside of Madrid, and their ministry focus is on the students at their school and investing in relationships with their non-believer friends. You can learn more about their ministry by receiving their updates and emailing Emily.
Jenny, a UNCW Seahawk alumnus, has a vision to see whole communities of people transformed through wholistic care. This will include community health and development, relationship building, and sharing the Good News. Her first term will be focusing solely on language and culture learning. You can join the work she’s doing there by being a part of a monthly prayer team that meets here in Wilmington and by receiving her monthly email updates.
The Go Team exists to mobilize our Church on mission. Several of the ways they catalyze our Church are by providing opportunities to engage with unreached people groups in our city, caring and advocating for our missionaries overseas, helping recruit for short term trips, and hosting missions-related events within the Church.
