Global Outreach (GO) Teams
Global Mission Trips
Christ Church supports individuals and organizations around the world that work to bring the love of Christ to their communities. Our partners work toward our 5 Passions of Missions: Relieving Suffering, Transforming Communities, Lifting Women & Children, Multiplying Churches & Disciples, and Developing Leaders.
Global Outreach Teams are an opportunity for members of the Christ Church community to witness the work of our partners, forge deeper relationships, and participate in God's mission for the global church.
Join us on one of our 2023 Global Outreach trips! Any questions? Email Jordan Heinzel-Nelson at jheinzelnelson@ChristChurch.us

Kids Alive works to lift children out of poverty throughout the Dominican Republic. It has seven schools that support vulnerable children in order to holistically change lives and provide education.

Malawi | Villages in Partnership | July 28–August 6
Approximate cost: $3,400–$4,200
Villages in Partnership (VIP) works to transform communities in Malawi. By targeting six areas of development, VIP raises partner villages out of extreme poverty. VIP believes we are called to be partners, creating relationships and understanding with our brothers and sisters in Malawi. This year, Christ Church is participating in VIP’s first Women-to-Women trip. Trip participants will have the chance to see how the women in the villages live, learn about projects designed to uplift women in the community, and create personal connections with female partners.
Romania | Missio Link International | September 22–October 1
Approximate cost: $2,000–$2,400
Missio Link International works to multiply churches and disciples throughout Romania. Missio Link offers leadership development opportunities to church leaders at their Alpiniş Leadership Center. In addition, Missio Link’s Children/Youth At Risk program supports vulnerable youth in a variety of ways. Christ Church has had a long relationship with Deborah House, Missio Link’s house for girls rescued from trafficking or severe abuse. In 2023, Christ Church will be sending a team to witness the work of Missio Link, participate in the work of Deborah house, and help with a Church Leaders conference.
