"Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that." Ephesians 5:2 (msg.)

ARE YOU CALLED TO SERVE on a short term mission team in 2020?
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)
One of the many ways we encourage the Body of Christ to reach out to others is through short term mission trips. These trips, ranging from one to two weeks in length, are intended to provide you with a glimpse of life outside of what you’re used to. They stretch and grow your faith, while sharing the love of Christ through service and health care initiatives in countries like El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti, Africa, and more. Through the generous donation of your time and skills, countless lives have been touched and seeds of faith planted around the globe.
Mission trips are offered throughout the year with emphases on areas including village outreach, medical and dental care trips, and more. Such trips are made possible due to strong relationships with long term missionaries in each country we serve and friendships with local village leadership. Regardless of your experience or language knowledge, professional background, your spiritual gifts, and God-given talents, YOU can be used on this trip. Remember . . . “God doesn’t call the equipped, God equips the called.”
We invite you to pray about the potential role you could play in an Oak Hills Church mission trip and ask for God’s guidance.
