DURATION/DATES: A typical trip would last 7-10 days. The team would depart the US after work on a Friday and return by the end of the day the following Sunday. This allows team members to take no more than 5 vacation days off work, if needed.

TRIP DESCRIPTION: India is a beautiful country of extreme contrast. Your team will fly into any number of international airports in India. Within minutes of leaving the airport you will see slum communities characterized by inhumane poverty. With 1.3 billion people, India is among the largest, poorest, neediest, and most undeveloped countries in the world. In fact, half of the world’s orphans live in India.

Our work in India centers on empowering the church in India for the advancement of the Gospel in three ways: church planting, village development, and child rescue.

We will leverage the gifts and abilities of each individual team member. Whether you like leading in public or serving quietly behind the scenes, there is a huge need for you in India! All team members can expect to play with kids, befriend adults, and pray with lots of people. You will get out of your comfort zone and seek to join God in His work in the midst of real human need.
