Current Short Term Mission Trips:

Kenya

January 18-28, 2019

Mission: Silas and Rahab Waweru have been assigned the task of supervising Village Church Planting in Kenya. They are also involved in theological training of indigenous national leaders and empowering local communities through compassionate ministries. They also founded Providence Training Center, a school for marginalized pastors, and later co-founded Care to Learn International, a not-for-profit organization to support pastoral training and community outreach.

We are thrilled to partner with Silas and Rahab as we work together to spread the Gospel through various ministry opportunities. We will be facilitating Pastoral Training as well as a variety of service projects. The trip will culminate with a safari where we get to sleep outside with the 'big cats'.

Their vision is to see Haitians living productive lives and rebuilding Haiti. A vital part of this vision is Short Term Mission Teams. Teams are helping build toward this vision through their four pillars of Leadership Development, Education, Healthcare, and Economic Empowerment. Supporting all of the pillars, and ultimately the vision, is a foundation of Spiritual Development.
