Taking a mission trip to Mexico is an experience that will not only impact the lives of those you serve and minister to but will transform your own life. We look forward to partnering with you to serve this community! Trips are a great way to live out your faith, build and strengthen relationships with people from your church, and most importantly break out of your comfort zones to experience God in new ways.
Come down for a day, a weekend or longer! We can accomodate any size group. Mission trip service opportunities include serving breakfast or a meal to the local children at the breakfast ministry, doing special Church services and outreach events, building houses, cleaning up the community, hosting vacaction Bible study programs, distributing food and living essentials, evangelizing, etc. Whatever your vision is we can work together to further the kingdom of God. This community is in great need of the love and hope of Christ.

We have received some questions regarding safety in Baja California amid ongoing negative reports in the news concerning the drug war. Baja California is very removed from the rest of Mexico and has not been the focal point of drug cartel violence. Yes there are some rough areas of Tijuana, but the Church is not located in one of those areas. Where we work has problems of poverty, not violence. The Church has been working in this community for almost 10 years and has not encountered any violence, in fact missionaries have been welcomed with open arms. As long as you use common sense, are respectful in your words and actions, and follow our guidance and direction while in Mexico you should have a great trip. We work in areas and use roads that we know are safe, where we have established our presence, and are routinely used by missionary groups.
