The Biblical mandate in the Great Commission in Matthew 28:20 calls us to go into the world and make disciples. Whatever we do for the least of Jesus’ brothers and sisters, we do for him and we seek to accomplish going to the “least” and the “lost” through yearly mission initiatives.

Alaska is the least church-attending state in the US. It is far less "churched" than places like Haiti, Guatemala, Belize and other central America/Caribbean countries. People think of Alaska as a tourist destination, but it is a serious mission field. Each year, a mission team of ~25 congregants head to Anchorage during the summer to lead a Vacation Bible School.
GraceWorks partners with local churches facilitating mission volunteers and church teams to work directly with non-churched children, youth and adults in local parks – feeding meals to the hungry, leading a backyard Bible school, playing sports, games and making crafts. They partner with local churches and church planters to ensure quality follow-up.

Through our partnership with Kids Around the World, we are headed to Aguas Verdes, a community about an hour outside of Guayaquil. Each summer, a mission team of ~15 congregants head to this neighborhood to build a playground, distribute Days for Girls Menstruation Kits and Kids Around the World meals, and bring joy to the families there.
Kids Around the World
Kids Around the World trip participants are the “hands and feet” that get to go and see what God has purposed to do through KATW come to fruition — whether it is by giving kids the gift of play with a beautiful playground, providing nutritious meals, or sharing God’s story of His love for them. The work their teams do often serves as a springboard to impact the lives of children long-term.
January 20-27, 2024
You can help transform lives in the Dominican Republic by joining us for our yearly medical mission trip. A mission team of 20+ congregants host mobile medical clinics in remote communities in the DR to bring exceptional care to those who do not have regular access to medical care. These clinics are organized and operated through local churches in communities where we have cultivated meaningful relationships. The investment you make in these people’s health will continue to have an impact long after you return home.

Scroll up to each mission section to complete an Application. Upon your mission approval, you will be sent additional paperwork to complete to secure your spot.
Simple answer, no! Some trips may be a better fit based on specific skills or professional knowledge, but we encourage you to apply regardless of experience.
Each trip is different so you will need to read through the descriptions to find out the specifics (to the left). This could involve using your God-given skills in a variety of activities like building a playground, coordinating crafts for Vacation Bible School, & more!
Each team member has the opportunity to raise their own financial support in order to serve on a mission. While this may seem daunting, it is an opportunity to see God provide in ways that will strengthen the faith of those going on the trip. Each person will be thoroughly equipped and prepared with the knowledge of how to raise support. This is typically done through emails that ask people to contribute to the trip.
Team preparation takes place over at least 2 meetings leading up to the trip (potentially more depending on the nature of the trip). We will talk about financial fundraising, prepare the programs we will be initiating, and team-build in order to serve as a unit. Attendance is required in order to build team unity and receive the necessary information & materials prior to your trip.
