2019 Mission Trips

When you’re committed to being a Christ-follower, coming to church for an hour on the weekends isn’t enough. We have to be constantly aware of what the next step on our faith journey looks like. Here at Rock Bridge, we describe those next steps in six words: Love God, Love Others, Live Sent.

A short-term mission trip is a great way to stretch yourself and take a next step that might be a little bigger than you’re used to. We have partnered with local churches and organizations here in the US and abroad that share Rock Bridge’s mission and values. We send our teams to work with these partners to help them accomplish goals and meet needs- putting on youth camps, drilling wells, coaching leaders, teaching English, and more.

Are you ready to GO? We have an application and preparation process for every team. It prepares the team members to represent Jesus to people whose cultures are different. The team will meet together to build relationships, pray, prepare logistics, and facilitate financial support. Each trip is led by a seasoned and experienced leader.
