Mission Trips

A short-term mission trip will challenge your faith, your personal ministry, and your view of this culture and world. Each year our missions department provides mission opportunities all over the world, with a variety of focuses: orphan care, medical care, evangelism, church planting, anti-trafficking, and more. We pray you consider taking a step of faith to share the Good News at one of these locations.

Take a few minutes to check out this year’s scheduled trips. If you have specific questions, please contact the leader who is coordinating the trip. If you’re ready to sign-up – great! Please click the “Sign Up” button next to your desired trip and complete the registration with a $100 deposit. You will be notified by your trip leader of upcoming meetings and important information.

If you’re interested in becoming a future trip leader, you are welcome to apply. Each Fall we hold a training for new potential leaders, followed by an application process. For further clarification, please contact Amanda at amanda.rehorn@longhollow.com. Please note, you must have traveled to an international location through Long Hollow prior to leading a team there.

We know there are many people who go on mission through other trips and organizations, and we encourage that! We would love to keep up with your journey and spread the word within our church community. Please fill out this form so we can connect with you and pray for you.

East Asia

This is an opportunity to see a unique area of Asia, leading a basketball camp for 12-15 year olds and also sharing what it means to be a believer of Christ. We need people with some basketball playing experience, but also those who are organizers, flexible, and want to pour into people who don’t know Jesus. If that sounds like you, please contact us.
