Cuba 2017

Cuba 2015 Trip

JULY 14-20, 2017
Experience Christianity in Cuba! High school students and adults are welcome to join us on this amazing journey.

The cost of this mission trip is $1,600. This includes all transportation, lodging, food, and ministry expenses in the country. This trip requires a $100 deposit with your registration. Registration deadline is January 1. There will be several fundraisers happening for this trip, but the major way you will earn money for this trip is by writing support letters to your friends and family.
There are four different elements to this trip:
  1. Experiencing The Church & Culture of Cuba
    We will visit our partner church, hear testimonies from Christians in Cuba, and eat a lot of great Cuban food. We will also enjoy a day in Old Havana.
  2. Care Ministry to Children
    We will host Vacation Bible School for kids in Cuba. We will interact with them through teaching, song, and skits. Last year, we had 160 kids each day!
  3. Work Projects
    We will work on a few different work projects for our partners to help provide some needed physical labor for our friends in Cuba.
  4. Spiritual Formation
    On this trip, you will grow in your understanding of who God is and how he interacts with the world. Every night, we will gather together to debrief our experience of the day, read scripture, and hear some testimonies from the members of our team.
