An opportunity of a lifetime!

About this mission trip

Get to know more about what makes us different.

Join us in July 2025 as our next mission trip will be in the Kalimantan Island of Singkawang (pronounced sing-kah-wahng). This will be a fast paced week full of activities from Bible Studies, Health Seminars, evening revival meetings, and VBS for the kids! The organizers of this trip are seasoned planners and will help you have the best experience ever!  In just the last few years, the team has lead trips to the islands of Sumatra, Java, and Ambon. The main goal is to serve various Indonesian communities who have limited resources and extreme poverty and to share the gospel with them!

Barbara Marpaung 

Although I grew up in the suburbs myself, it felt different because getting involved with the people and kids there with rich traditions and customs made me appreciate being there and wanting to share more about Jesus and the love of God with them.

Daniel & Shirley Tan Injo

"We went to five of the past six mission trips the Indonesian SS class hosted in the last 11 years. The Lord's blessings are always with us in every way. Each experience was unique. We had the privilege of working with local Pastors, church leaders, members and conferences. We definitely received and valued the support and contributions of our own church Pastors and fellow members."

I went to Toraja in 2023 to support the health ministry program. We provided basic health care support to people in need, such as checking BP and blood sugar, and providing reading glasses etc. I felt so blessed to have the opportunity to share the love of God with so many people through the health ministry. I’m looking forward to going again next year for the Singkawang ministry trip. Please come and join us. Thank you

"This ministry is great blend of culture, service, and a chance to go deeper with Jesus!"

- Pastor Linda
