  • What are trips?
    Trips are a great way for members of our network to share their upcoming travel plans and extend warm invitations to fellow believers who want to join them on their adventures. These are not typical scheduled tours, but rather opportunities for believers to gather and go on faith-based vacations with others. Groups benefit from inviting other believers to join them on their journeys, connecting with like-minded Christians as they check off places on their bucket lists, sharing God-moments in their adventures, gathering for impromptu Bible studies and discussions, and some even complete service projects! Unlike short-term mission trips, which focus on witnessing in a single location, this sort of group travel allows you to be a witness wherever you go while also receiving support from your Christian travel network.
