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.

    South Asia 4/11/2020 to 4/20/2020 $2,050.00

    In this buzzing, strategic city in South Asia, less than 2% of the population would claim to follow Jesus. This country is enveloped in lostness.

    East Asia - May (5037)

    East Asia 5/1/2020 to 5/10/2020 $2,550.00

    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.

The middle of the summer includes several weeks in Wake Forest, North Carolina, receiving practical theological and ministry training by pastors at the Summit. During this time, students will learn to effectively share the gospel and give their lives away in RDU in response to the gospel.

    Coming Soon

    Central Asia

    September 2020

    This 2 week trip will be headed to one of the most remote parts of one of the most remote nations in the world. It's 99% Muslim, and life is rugged out there. Our goal will be to experience the reality of ministry in this context, sip tea with locals, and support our long-standing missionaries there.


    East Africa

    August 2020

    Join us in spirit-directed outreach as we seek biblical, contextual churches planted among communities without the gospel in East Africa. Come alongside our Summit-sent field partners as they equip and empower the local church in global missions.


    Southeast Asia

    August 2020

    Join us in serving and encouraging a young family on the field on an island in Southeast Asia. Pray with them, sip tea with their national friends, and watch as the Holy Spirit moves to bring the Kingdom here.


    Europe

    August 2020

    Join us as we support our long-term field partners through their adventure & ecotourism business. Where we’re going is incredibly beautiful, but remains hostile to the gospel. Our prayer is that we would be able to open strategic doors for our Summit family’s business and for the gospel to go forward! This will be a time for intercessional prayer & worker encouragement; a time for us to grow in discipleship, listen to God and each other.


    East Africa

    September 2020

    Our team will come alongside Summit members serving long-term in East Africa. We will serve & encourage the team there in hopes of building them up as we engage with their culture and ministry. We will go alongside our partners' sports consulting business, creating opportunities for connections through sport that lead to gospel conversations in people's homes and discipleship opportunities for our partners (over coffee and popcorn!)


    Southeast Asia

    December 2020

    Come visit one of our Summit families in a large city in Southeast Asia. This will be an opportunity to work in one of the most diverse cities in the world. Join us as we encourage our brothers & sisters in this modern global city with great food!


    East Africa

    October 2020

    Our team will be coming alongside Summit members serving long-term in East Africa. Trek with us through some remote terrain as we open doors for gospel conversation. We will spend time serving and encouraging the team there in hopes of building them up as we engage with their culture and ministry.


    Central Asia

    October 2020

    Our team will have the privilege of visiting Summit church planters who have lived in Central Asia with their young family for 10 years! We will be spending time encouraging the team, seeing what life looks like for them in work, school, and friendships, and meet with local believers. God has been working in this place for many years, and you will get to see his work first-hand!


    East Asia

    October 2020

    Join our church-planters in East Asia in a country with one of the greatest populations of lost and unreached people. As you see people on the subway or in a restaurant, you can assume that none of them have ever heard of Jesus. Your prayers and encouragement are vital to our Summit family as they carry out the Great Commission here!


    Middle East

    November 2020

    Our team will be visiting Summit members who are serving in the Middle East. We will spend time encouraging and working with the family there in hopes of building them up as we engage with their culture and ministry. We will also spend time meeting locals, sharing meals, and helping with their local business.


    Sweden

    November 2020

    Our team will be serving in Vasteras, sharing the good news of the gospel with university students. Sweden is a beautiful, vibrant country with a spiritual darkness that desperately needs the light that the gospel brings! We'll be serving, encouraging, and drinking coffee with our long-term Summit members, who've been living and working there since 2012. We will host Thanksgiving dinner and game nights as we seek to meet people hungry for the Gospel, connecting them to our long-term field workers, who can continue to build relationships with them and share the Gospel.


    South Asia

    November 2020

    Our team will join in with local workers as they strive to plant healthy, reproducing churches among the greatest concentration of lostness on earth. We will go ready to learn from, and serve, a colourful and rich culture vastly different than our own!


    Ecuador

    November 2020

    This is a family mission trip to Quito, Ecuador! We will be partnering with a local Baptist church in Quito to target an unreached area of the city through: kids clubs (vbs) evangelism, door to door love baskets, and family fun nights.


    South Africa

    December 2020

    We will be experiencing the rich culture of Johannesburg, a city well known for its historical racial division and more recent reconciliation. We will be serving alongside missionaries who have served in Johannesburg for nearly 20 years. We will support our Summit families on the field through evangelism, prayer walks and children ministry as we work to be ambassadors of reconciliation for Christ, making an impact for the Gospel in the suburbs of Johannesburg.


    West Africa

    December 2020

    Join us in West Africa as we continue to support local efforts to advance the Gospel through partnerships with local healthcare professionals, expanding/developing the current healthcare infrastructure, and simultaneously creating opportunities for church planting. In addition, we will focus on caring for the long term field workers sent out by Summit, a physican and nurse practitioner and their 4 kids who have lived in the region for 12+ years. This is a French speaking region, although fluency is not a requirement. Conditions may be austere at times. A willingness to learn, be flexible, and see the big picture are helpful. All medical specialties are encouraged to apply. For ease of travel and mobility, the team will be kept small. 


    Southeast Asia

    October 2020

    This team has the wonderful opportunity to serve alongside our missionary friends serving in Southeast Asia, in a dark city with a vast amount of lostness. This trip will allow each team member the opportunity to push back darkness through proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our team will serve with and encourage local brothers and sisters in this city who are often overwhelmed with the burden of reaching the lost.
