Mission Trip Details
Wide Awake Missions plans trips around you. In order to minister to a variety of different cultures, we need your talents, spiritual gifts, and individuality to reach every Tribe, Tongue, and Nation. We create experiences that will tap into the many aspects of your walk with the Lord.
EVERY WAM TRIP FOCUSES ON THREE THINGS:
* A balance between personal spiritual growth, unique ministry, and, of course, Adventure.
* Personal and team development through daily inspired devotionals, personal quiet times, group discussions, ministry, worship and prayer.
*Ministry outreaches allowing you to develop and/or realize your God-given gifts and talents, while ministering and sharing your faith in the harvest field.
We have specialized trips that will allow God to open your eyes to a lost and hurting world. Through totally unique outreach opportunities, you will have the chance to share your testimony and to share the love of Christ and His message of salvation.
You may have the opportunity to share your faith through one of many outreach tools: drama evangelism, work projects, loving on children in orphanages, village trips to outlying poorer areas, local church services, food distribution, and much more. You will be part of a team with people from all over America as you minister and intentionally share the love of Jesus to everyone you meet.
Wide Awake Missions, a nonprofit Christian mission organization, specializes in planning adventurous, short-term mission trips for teens, college students, adults, and churches. We custom-design special trips to provide the best experience possible for participants. Because of our experience in leadership overseas, our passion for bringing salvation to the lost, and our commitment to you and your experience, a trip with Wide Awake Missions may be your next “fearless pursuit.”
