Recommended Mission Trips

JAARS Youth Group Mission Trip – Each summer we take a group of MKs who are interested in missions on a trip that allows them to search out God’s calling on their life. Usually the trip is more difficult than most trips, and really pushes these already experienced students.
Teen Mission Int’l – This organization has a long track record for professionally run mission trips.
CRU’s MK2MK – Are you an MK? – You can travel on a mission trip with a bunch of other MKs.
CRU’s Mission Trips – Not an MK? – There are many opportunities for high school & college students as well as athletes, to go on a Crusades short term mission trip
