Short-term trips, eternal impact

Short-term trips, long-term relationships

The Bible Chapel exists to develop followers of Jesus Christ. We are compelled by Matthew 28:19-20 to enact this mission not only at home, but across the world.

In obeying Jesus' command to make disciples of all nations, we take a variety of short-term trips each year. Congregants of all ages, from junior high on up, have the opportunity to go on these trips and grow as disciples even as they help others around the world grow, too. Their journeys are detailed on our Trip Blog.

For many of our short-term trips, we travel to our long-term international partners - organizations we have come to know, and who have come to know us, over many years of serving together in the name of Christ.
