Adventures in Missions has taken more than 115,000 people on mission trips around the world. Through various short and long-term programs, Adventures In Missions helps people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what Jesus has called them to: making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and being his witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).
What does Adventures offer youth leaders and participants?
Planned ministry — we coordinate all the ministry for your group with our ministry contacts or international bases in every location we send teams. We believe in fostering a lasting impact anywhere we send a team, therefore we only send teams where we have a strategic ministry partner or long-term base established.
Leadership — your trip will be lead by one to two project leaders, trained by Adventures, to take care of scheduling and logistics, and to serve as your main point of contact with us.
Freedom — your youth leader can be as hands-on or hands-off as they like! Planning worship, teachings, devotions, and free time is open for you to lead or can be passed to our Project Leader.
Logistics — we handle all the details from insurance and rental cars, to meals and supplies. It is all covered! You will simply get your group to the trip destination’s airport.
Debrief — Adventures in Missions values the process. We will give your students the space to talk about and understand their experiences daily. They may see a part of the world they have never seen before, and our leaders will be there to walk alongside your group as they process and respond.
Devotionals — Adventures has created custom devotional journals to help walk you and your group through what they are experiencing on their trip. These devotionals will be mailed out to your prior to your trip.
You want to take your youth to the next level with God. You want changed lives.

Imagine your youth group going to ...
From the 200 foot cliffs of Cabo Rojo to the ancient streets of San Juan – Puerto Rico is known to be a wonderful tourist destination and to have a relaxed Caribbean culture. However, life on this island is not what you see in the travel magazines. Nearly half of the population in this beautiful country lives below the poverty line and struggle to find jobs. In 2017, Hurricane Maria devastated the nation – the power grid for the entire island was destroyed, leaving 3.4 million U.S. citizens in the dark. About 6% of the population fled Puerto Rico as a result of Maria, that’s over 200,00 people. This tragedy left Puerto Ricans frightened, confused, and hopeless. As they continue to recover, will you share the hope of Jesus in Puerto Rico?
While in Puerto Rico, your team will partner with Iglesia Bautista Raham, a church dedicated to bring the love of Jesus to their community.
Work Projects: Your team could help with small construction projects on homes affected by Hurricane Maria.
Community Outreach: You will visit the homes of those affected by Maria and hear their story, while displaying the love and light of Jesus. You will live your faith as you explore the wonders of Puerto Rico, asking the Lord for direction. While swimming at the beach, or shopping in the local markets you will live life on mission.
Children’s Ministry: You may spend time with children while hosting Vacation Bible School in a local community.
Your team will be housed at the church where you will have access to bathrooms, and showers.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in Puerto Rico?
Pray for Puerto Rico
Aside from the devastation left by the hurricanes, the issue of Puerto Rico’s political identity divided the nation in the past. Independence, US statehood or the current arrangement of the Commonwealth are all options, but most people now seem content with the status quo. Many are concerned with the increasing Americanization of government. The biggest problem may be, however, the high levels of corruption that plague local government. Pray for wise governance that works for the best interests of the islands’ inhabitants.
