Ministry Partners

Del Camino Network

International trips are facilitated by the Del Camino network: a network of churches throughout the Caribbean, Central and South American regions. The churches in these areas focus on influencing their community by showing the love of God in all they do. On our trips we get a glimpse of how such focus not only changes lives but also the community as a whole.

Relief Bus NYC

Our domestic connection is with the Relief Bus in New York City. This organization operates predominantly through support from volunteers and urban missionaries. Join us as we venture into the boroughs of New York City to serve and minister to people in need.

Common Questions

What happens on a trip?

Each trip is uniquely planned with specific communities in mind. However, here’s what happens regardless of the trip you participate in:

• You’ll expand your perspective, experience how others outside of your local community worship God with passion.
• You become more grateful for what the little blessings in life, like a home, running water, etc.
• You’ll find friends that become like family. Each trip has a unique experience, and these relationships can last a lifetime.
• You’ll overcome fears. Many of us live with doubts about how God can use us like we’re not wise enough or seasoned enough, but God uses these times to grow us and recognize that He can use us right where we are.
• You’ll show support and love to the missionaries and ministries we are serving alongside.

Do I need special vaccines for international mission trips?

Typically that is not necessary. However each person must decide for themselves the level of protection makes them comfortable.

Do I need a passport?

All trips outside the continental US require a passport. It is recommend you plan for this at least 3 months from departure.

What will our accommodations be like?

Most people who have taken a mission trip are pleasantly surprised by our accommodations. We stay in local hotels or guest houses that are air conditioned and reasonably comfortable.

Is the water safe to drink?

This detail is dependent on the trip. You will be given all info specific to your preferred trip well before departure. In areas where we can’t drink the water we are provided as much bottled water as needed.

Are the areas we go to safe?

Absolutely, security is our priority. Ventures into rougher villages are always accompanied by church leaders that work, live and have established relationships in the community that act as guides to keep our groups safe.
