Mission Trips

Kentucky: Familyfest 2017

Familyfest is designed with families in mind. It is recommended for everyone age 6 or older, and is a perfect volunteer opportunity for families, youth groups, and more. Serve together to make a difference in a community this year!

What happens at Familyfest? Take a glimpse at the memories made during Familyfest Aurora 2016. During this trip, families from all over the U.S. shared God's love in Aurora, Colorado, by serving through Familyfest. We helped meet the needs of the community through construction, outreach, evangelism, acts of kindness, prayerwalking, and much more!

All Things Big and Small

When I think of missions, my first thought is a big trip taken overseas. I think of going to Africa or Asia, eating strange new foods, forging new relationships and working hard, and meeting the needs of people who have never heard of Jesus.

Then I look around me and realize there are people right outside my front door who have never heard of Jesus. I realize that anywhere I am is a missions field if I’ll just let God use me as a missionary.

It’s hard to remember that we are called to be missionaries as soon as we accept Jesus into our hearts. It’s hard to be intentional about sharing His love with others as we go about our sometimes mundane day-to-day tasks.

We don’t have to pack a giant backpack and head to Africa in order to be missionaries. In fact, there are over 269 million lost people in North America, so we need to consider taking off our giant backpacks and reaching out to our many neighbors who are lost.
