Missions Trip

During a student’s senior year, the Senior Class Mission Trip offers a unique service opportunity that varies each year. Each year, the trip is designed to provide an enriching and impactful experience, allowing students to engage in meaningful work and make a positive difference in different parts of the world.

Past trips have included working with Children’s Vision International in Bogota, Colombia, where students helped with building projects in the children’s dorms and classrooms, attended worship services, and traveled into the mountains of Bogota to distribute food and water to local communities.
