2020 Trips…

From Global Impact Director Dan Crum: As a result of the generosity we are experiencing through our Greater Things emphasis, we are able to offer further discounted rates on all mission trips in 2020 to those who are age 28 and younger. This is in line with our commitment to “Invest in the Next Generation.” I’m so thankful for all of you who commit to go on these trips to serve our global partners, and anticipate you will also deepen your walk with Christ as a result of going. Priority for Connection Pointe trips is given to Connection Pointe members.
