Participate in Global outreach through mission trips and projects.
Mission Trips 2023
Where are you going?
Black Rock sends teams around the world on mission trips to advance the goals of our Global Partners. They work in places where the gospel is inaccessible, among the poorest of the poor, or with the most vulnerable and exploited. Through these trips, you can serve those in need, and spread Christ’s love to the lost around the world!
We offer trips to multiple countries every year, so please consider applying for one of our upcoming trips.
TRAVEL IN A NEW REALITY
Events since 2020 have made conducting mission trips more complicated. These include political and economic unrest in some host countries. Sending teams requires planning for contingencies to safeguard the health and experience of both participants and ministry recipients.
Requirements for each trip will include compliance with each host country and organization’s guidelines as well as consideration of travel advisories and advice of our host partners. If the situation in a host country makes it prohibitive for participants to travel and/or be effective in ministry, we reserve the right to cancel a trip.
Interested in mid-term or long-term Missions?
Why should I apply for a mission trip?
Four great reasons!
- It will change your spiritual life;
- It will help you better understand what God is doing in the world;
- It will help the Black Rock partners we support; and
- It will enable you to provide a useful service to people who need hope and who need to know Christ.
What about getting the money? Does the church pay my way?
No, the church does not pay your way, but we will give you concrete ideas as to how to raise the money. Contributions are made to the church mission trips program and are tax deductible. Financial aid is available for first-time participants.
If I go, will there be training?
Yes, there is a quality training program and a lot of team-building before you depart. The training is required and is at least four sessions.
Can I prepare now to join a team later?
Yes! If you are interested in joining any team in 2022 or beyond, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you started with our prerequisites so you’ll be ready to join a team when the time comes.
Will I need a passport?
Yes, if you are going overseas. They are relatively easy to obtain through your local post office. We will also provide you information and guidance on the correct procedures.
Do I have to fill out an application?
Yes. All team participants must complete an application.
What happens after I submit an application?
You will be interviewed by the trip leader and a member of our mission trips committee. Our desire is to assemble the right people for each trip. You will be promptly notified when you are accepted as a participant.
How do I get other information?
Contact the Missions Department by phone at (203) 255-3401 and speak to Kerry or Pastor Jeremy, or via e-mail at email@example.com. Or, you can contact the team leader directly.
