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 experiencing the world, listening to the voice of God, serving others, and making a real, tangible difference in the lives of others.
Imagine your youth group going to ...
The Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti and has become a refuge for thousands of displaced people. Although known for its vast sugar plantations, the nation’s economy depends on tourism. Political corruption is a lasting issue, along with the expanding gap between wealthy and poor. A favorite pastime the Dominican Republic is baseball, and the kids will play it all day long! They fully embrace the “island life” and the people are extremely friendly and laid back – quick to welcome and enter into a conversation.
The people of the DR love deeply – and are searching for love themselves.
While in the Dominican Republic, you will partner with HOPE Dominican Republic in Lajas de Yaroa.
Children’s Ministry: You will have the opportunity to love the local kids through hosting a Vacation Bible School, playing games, teaching songs, and going out in the community to invite children to join.
Church Ministry: You will participate in evening church services and church plants by sharing messages, testimonies, and songs.
Work projects: Your team will help the ministry through cleaning, picking up trash, and construction around the church property and the community.
Pray Walks: You will be able to cover the community in prayer.
Teams will stay in local apartments. There will be no furniture, so you should plan to bring sleeping pads. There will be running water and electricity, but these will sometimes not work for hours at a time since it is a developing city. Showers will be available but sometimes water isn't!
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 the Dominican Republic?
