How much of a difference can a week make? More than you think. We partner with multiple Global and Regional partners to share Jesus’ love with people around the world. Together, our churches are making a lasting impact in the communities we serve.
Around the world, children are growing up without parents, without a safe place to call home, no access to clean water and without an education. Crossroads Missions gives these children a future and families hope by partnering with Asia’s Hope and Mission Impact. We also value the development of strong Christ-following leaders around the world. So many established and upcoming leaders have little access to the resources we take for granted. Through a partnership with GlobalLead, we support high-quality strategic trainings in countries all over the world.
By partnering with these organizations, we can participate in ministry that continues long after our team comes home. Christ-followers are raised up and supported to then carry on the work of the local church in their communities. And when we work together, we begin to see The Great Commission happening before our eyes: "You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1:8
But mission trips don’t just change the lives of those we serve. Mission trips change those who go as well. Seeing God at work around the world will expand your understanding of who He is and the power of His church.

SPONSOR A TRIP
You don’t have to travel across the world to make a difference in a child’s life. When you sponsor a team, you can support a specific trip participant or give to the team as a whole.
By giving toward a mission trip, you are investing in life change for trip participants as well as the children they serve.
