Global Teams

We are passionate about the call to go out into the world and make disciples of all nations. We have many opportunities locally and globally to make a difference in the world and to share the love and the message of Jesus Christ. Please take a look below on how you can serve on a local or global mission trip:

Poland (Tomaszow)

June 2-11, 2017

Mission: PROeM is a non-profit Polish Christian mission working for the benefit of young people. The headquarters is in Warsaw with daily operations in the Christian Youth Center in Zakosciele. PROeM Ministries has existed in Poland since 1990, and is based on the teaching of the Bible and Christian ethics, while working together with Polish churches as well as churches from other countries. PROeM has organized summer and winter camps for children and youth from differing social classes and churches for over 18 years. PROeM promotes recreation and relaxation that joins sports and games, along with Biblical teaching and spiritual growth.

This summer, Mount Pleasant is privileged to partner with PROeM as together we welcome 120 kids from Eastern Ukraine. These children are referred to as “warzone kids” and they range in age from 7-12. They have lived in terrible ongoing crisis. While at camp they will experience the simple pleasures of being outdoors, having cookouts, hanging out by the bonfire making s’mores, laughing, joking and just having a good time. What an opportunity we have to be Christ to those who have yet to know who He is. We will also be sending a team to help PROeM with community outreach, service projects and visiting local schools.

    Florida (Kissimmee)

    June 29 - July 6, 2017

    Mission: Power Soccer is the first and only competitive team sport internationally organized and played by people with various severe disabilities who must use power wheelchairs. The game is played on a basketball court and is similar to the nonstop action seen in a typical soccer game. One of the main benefits of Power Soccer is that it provides inspiration to those with severe disabilities by making the world’s most popular sport accessible to everyone regardless of disability, gender, or age. It also encourages healthy competition, demonstrates independence, builds self-confidence, teaches character, and breaks down the barriers for others to follow nationally and internationally, proving that dreams can become reality!

    MPCC is excited to partner with Team USA as they host the World Cup in Kissimmee, FL. Our team will assist by making & distributing athlete participant bags, participate in overall facility setup, greet the International teams as they arrive, and serve as all around team assistants. This trip would be a great family trip, with a minimum suggested age of 12 years old. We will be working June 30 thru July 3, going to Cocoa Beach on July 4, and finishing the trip by serving the morning of July 5.

        Florida (Tampa)

        October 14-21, 2017

        Mission: Common Ground Church is people “sharing the love of Christ” to everyone. CGC believes everyone should experience the love of God, that people should have the basic needs of their life provided for, and that the local church is here to help with that. Their zip code, 33603, has the projected demographics for America in the next 20 to 30 years. As a community, they are predominantly Latino, then African American, and then finally Caucasian. CGC is a ministry to every tribe, tongue, and nation in Tampa Bay. They wrestle with urban issues such as diversity, homelessness, poverty, and education.

        MPCC will be partnering with Common Ground Church in two very important capacities; first, we will work alongside CGC and their local partnering groups to restore homes, paint disadvantaged schools and also work on minor construction projects; secondly, we will have some opportunities for servant evangelism and acts of kindness projects. This may include partnering with local schools to tutor students, working with partners in neighborhoods to serve through backyard VBS, and connecting with local parks and recreation groups through sports and arts camps. This trip would be a great family trip, with a minimum suggested age of 12 years old.

          Mexico

          October 15-21, 2017

          Mission: Casas por Cristo relies on the labor and resources of full time staff missionaries, a board of over 100 pastors and community leaders from Mexico, Guatemala and Dominican Republic, and nearly 7,000 annual volunteers from across North America. Through these cross-cultural partnerships, volunteer teams are presented with an amazing opportunity to build a home for a family in need.

          Come & join us in showing God’s love and faithfulness to a family in need. During this one-week experience you will transform an otherwise empty lot into a safe and secure home – complete with cement foundation, electricity, windows and doors. Each family receives a tangible symbol of the faithfulness and unconditional love of Jesus Christ. As a volunteer, you will gain perspective on the extreme poverty that exists in our world. You will also be blessed to see how you’ve changed the world for this family. As a result, these families better understand God’s plan for their lives and His deep desire to take care of their needs.
