Why go on a mission trip?
If you’re reading this, chances are you’re interested in being part of our mission trip to Puerto Rico. Before going any further it’s important to stop and define what we mean by a mission trip. At West Pines Community Church we often talk about how God has called us to be mobilized with our faith and to take the Good News of Jesus wherever we go. A mission trip is an opportunity for us to partner with churches and Christians who live in a different part of the word to share the love of Christ. A mission trip is an opportunity for you to use the gifts and skills that God has given you to further His kingdom in obedience to the Great Commission.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
- Matthew 28:18-20
