It's not so much that we need you as the children need you. Whether you are interested in traveling alone or organizing a team from your church, school, or community, we have a wide range of ministry opportunities that will provide a rewarding experience as you minister to those less fortunate.
We are committed to ensuring that you and your team have a successful mission trip experience. You will work closely with our staff of social workers in Ethiopia where you will form lasting one-on-one relationships, both socially and spiritually. As you return for future trips, you will be able to continue developing these relationships and witness God working through you in their lives.
Visiting Ethiopia is like stepping back in time to a culture that is nearly as primitive as it was when Jesus walked the earth some 2,000 years ago. It's a rare opportunity to see first-hand what life was like so long ago, while ministering to and touching the lives of people in need.
Traveling as an individual missionary affords you great flexibility in your travel dates and agenda. You will work with our Program Director to plan a trip that fulfills your ministry objectives, whether you're interested in building, teaching, preaching, or simply holding a child's hand.
We invite you to organize a missions team from your church, school, or community and bring your team to our ministry site in Ethiopia, Africa. We can accommodate teams of any size. To set up your team's trip dates, simply fill out the Group Application and we will contact you to confirm your dates and help you begin planning. We can handle all of the travel details to help ensure that your team has a safe, rewarding and effective mission trip.
