Many times it can be difficult to start planning a mission trip. We are here to help! Depending on your need, there are many ways we can assist. See some suggestions below, or contact Gloria Tillman about planning a mission trip to the Texas border or Mexico.
Trip Planning Procedures

- Have you located an area of ministry which your church is able to serve?
- Have you prepared your church group to effectively carry out the mission project?
- Where will your headquarters be? (i.e. lodging, meals, travel/logistics)
