It’s time to begin to plan for this years mission trips away from Wichita. The following will give the dates, trip overview, and approximate cost. The cost may vary depending on the final number of participants and final transportation costs.

Seattle, Washington

Dates: Saturday July 8th- Saturday July 15th

Cost: $1,200-$1,300 ---- This will cover transportation, lodging, and most meals while we are in Seattle.

Trip Information:

This will be our first trip with our new partnership in Seattle. We will be working with NewStory Church and Pastor Jared Burwell. Participants will experience church planting in the early growth stages. This church has been meeting together for awhile but this past year outgrew the home they were meeting in, moved to a community center room and have now outgrown that. While speaking all English, the members represent several people groups, as does the community they are located in. We will be assisting Pastor Jared in staffing an event he calls “Man UP Camp”. This event is for young fatherless boys ranging from 9- 18 years of age. They will learn basic building skills as well as basic car care during first part of the day, and then take part in some Bible Studies and worship events. Besides helping with the camp, we will be doing prayer walking, servant evangelism projects, as well as getting to see and experience the life and culture of Seattle. On a scale of 1-5 with one being easy, this trip will be a 3.5-4. People on this trip will be involved in activities that require general good health, sizable amounts of walking, a very fluid schedule, and the ability to adapt to a variety of learning and teaching needs.

Trip Requirements:

Fill out a Seattle trip interest form and submit with an $800 nonrefundable deposit by April 15th. This will allow us to secure plane tickets and housing deposits. We will have team meeting before we go which will be scheduled at a later date.
