Upcoming Trips

"EVERY HEART WITH CHRIST IS A MISSIONARY, EVERY HEART WITHOUT CHRIST IS A MISSION FIELD."

Thank you for considering a short-term mission trip with the Summit. This is more than an overseas trip. We are boldly asking God to give us the promise he made to Jesus in Psalm 2:8: “Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance” (NIV). You are part of the answer to that prayer.

East Asia - May (5037)

East Asia May 1 - May 10, 2020 $2550

This team's primary focus is to support our long-term field partners as they minister to the unreached people of their region. With a heart for the nearby villages, the vision is to first reach the city through building relationships with students and sharing the gospel, and then equipping the saved to take the gospel back to their villages that have little to no gospel presence. Most of our time will be spent on college campuses (though there will be a visit to the village) and hanging out at local shops. We will focus on relationship-building on college campuses, sharing the gospel off-campus, and connecting people with the local team for discipleship. If you are highly relational and a self-starter, pray about joining our team! Our main day-to-day responsibilities will be initiating relationships and inviting students to lunch, coffee, sports, etc. as a way to get to know them and share Christ with them.

Max team capacity: 6
Estimated trip cost: $2,550 (with a $500/person supplement already applied)
