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.

Mexico - August (5075)

Mexico August 24 - August 30, 2019 $1550

Join us on this trip to work with our neighbors in Oaxaca, Mexico. The villages outside of Oaxaca have over 120 people groups who are not currently reached with the gospel. If you have a heart for working with unreached people groups, this is a fantastic opportunity to see God at work among them and to do it in a location that is extremely accessible. We'll partner with our people on the ground there to both serve local Mexican partner churches and to work in the villages with some of these people groups! This is an ideal trip for working adults (minimal travel time means you can do this trip in one work week!) as well as Spanish speakers.

Estimated trip cost: $1,550 (with a $300/person supplement already applied)
