Mission Trip Offered By RP Missions

RP Missions

View organization profile

RP Missions seeks to provide opportunities for God's people to serve Christ through short-term efforts partnering with established congregations and mission stations. Our primary tasks are to Serve Christ and His Church, Proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, and Disciple the Nations. Our trips are primarily aimed at young people (Sr. High through College) but do consider groups who would like to get acquainted with missionary service. We desire to see Christian men and women grow in their confidence to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and to grow in service to Christ and His Church. You will enjoy working alongside pastors, elders, deacons, missionaries and other church workers that can inspire you with their vision and aid you in discovering the tools that God has been pleased to give you through regular study of His Word and the investment of your parents and local church. If you have an overwhelming desire to serve Christ, to reach the "lost" with the good news of Jesus Christ, and if you are eager to get to know brothers and sisters in Christ from across His kingdom, we hope you will consider applying for an RP Missions trip! Our mission efforts are open to young people from the United States and Canada.

Team members will participate in weekly online meetings in the weeks and months leading up the departure. Those meetings will look at the practical implications of the Great Commission, what Scripture would have us understand about the aim and motive of Missions, learn more about the host congregation and its challenges and opportunities and so we can get to know each participant. Following the trip team members will each write a short reflection paper about the lessons they have learned and how they intend to implement what they have learned when they return home.
