In Acts 1, Jesus tells the disciples they will receive power from the Holy Spirit, and they will be His witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth. We believe the same is true today. We are not just called to reach our neighbors, our city, and our state. We are called to reach the entire world.
Saying yes to missions won’t just change others — it’ll change you, too. Mission trips transform the people who go as much as they help the people we serve. Seeing God work around the world will expand your understanding of who He is, how much He loves you, and the power of the Gospel.
GRAND SAVANE, HAITI
Once considered the Pearl of the Antilles, Haiti has been rocked by natural disasters in recent years. But, the Haitian people are resilient and determined to overcome.
Joining a team on a mission trip to In His Hands Orphanage is a life changing experience for everyone involved. 42 orphans of all ages, living in a 3rd-world country are waiting for you.
China has the world's largest population of people (1.4 billion) and an ever-growing population of orphans.
Our heart for China is to share the Gospel with the orphaned children through love and action. We are loving the least of these and the unloveable. We believe every child deserves to be held and every nanny should see she was created by God.
