Adventures in Missions has taken more than 115,000 people on mission trips around the world. Through various short and long-term programs, Adventures helps people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what He has called them to: making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and being His witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).
You want to do something that matters. You want to feel empowered and to make an impact on the world around you. You read about the way the followers of Jesus lived in the first century, and something in you is longing to do more – to live out your faith, hear the voice of God, and display His love to those who need it.
You want to go deeper in your relationship with God. You want to see lives changed.
Imagine experiencing firsthand how to listen to the voice of God, serve others in high-need ministry contexts, and make a real difference in the lives of others.
If you want to join a Christ-centered community committed to doing what the first generation of disciples did, then it’s time for you to join us in…
Less than 90 miles from the United States lies the largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba. It has the second largest population in the region, and before the US Embargo of 1960, was one of the most advanced and prosperous nations in Latin America.
Officially, Cuba is a secular nation. There is no national religion, although about 59% of the population would consider themselves Catholic. There is no organized faith. While it isn't illegal to be a Christian in Cuba, until recently they couldn’t openly share their faith. Churches could not build church buildings, but they were free to meet in their homes. The Gospel has been expanding on the island through the underground church over the course of the last 50 years. The US Department of State estimates around 10,000 house churches exist on the island, and Protestant churches have been growing at an unprecedented rate.
Adventures in Missions began sending teams to Cuba in 2012 and what we found was a nation hungry for Christ and a growing church inviting us to partner with them.
While in Cuba, you will partner with Cristo Centro International, who raises and sends out pastors and missionaries to plant churches throughout Cuba and the rest of the world. Cristo Centro’s focus is on church planting and discipleship, and it’s through that discipleship that they can send out missionaries from Cuba. We are looking for ministry partners that are willing help us equip Cuban missionaries and assist in their long-term church planting goals.
Church Service: Our ministry partners have 5+ churches in Sancti Spíritus. Our partner churches in Sancti Spíritus greatly enjoy worship services, prayer walks, and house visits to the believers and those they have been developing relationships with in hopes to see them come to Jesus.
Sports Ministry: You may have the chance to play a series of games with the local youth.
Evangelism: You will join the ministry partner in their attempt to reach the community with the Gospel.
Encouragement: You will spend a great amount of time with the believers in their community, encouraging them and sharing in the Gospel with them.
You and your team will stay in rented rooms with beds, bathrooms, shower, electricity, and clean water.
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 Cuba?
Pray for Cuba
There are over one million Cuban refugees(legal and illegal) living in the USA, mainly from the white middle and upper classes and predominantly Catholic. Pray that they will not be victims of the temptations offered by the “free” society they sought so desperately. Pray that the Cuban diaspora might also find Christ and have a redemptive influence on their nation of origin. Pray that their faith might shape their views and approaches to their home country.
Please be aware of the State Department travel warning regarding Cuba. Our Risk Management team uses a multi-pronged approach in assessing situations like this, collecting information from multiple sources. Upon reviewing the potential risk exposure to our teams and after further discussions with our trusted partner in Cuba we have determined to continue moving forward with our currently planned trips. If you have any concerns, please contact us. We will continue to monitor the situation and will be ready to respond accordingly if we deem it necessary.
We want you to have a new experience with Jesus that dramatically encourages your relationship with Him. God has things to say to you! During our mission trips, we intentionally spend time to listen.
More than just setting up a trip, we want to become your partners in ministry.
The Holy Spirit is already doing a great work in your group; it’s our role to understand your needs and come alongside what God is already doing in a unique way.
Trusted local partners
All of our ministry partners, both overseas and domestic, have a history of excellence in hosting short-term mission teams.
All of our Project Leaders have been well trained and are specifically prepared to lead each group.
More than just designing an experience for your group, we work with ministry partners that have a long-term plan for sustainability. Your team will come alongside these efforts and can be confident that your service is actually helping.
It’s important to us that your group has an opportunity to connect with Jesus and what He’s doing, both around the world and here in the United States. It’s just as important to us that your experience happens in the context of a plan for sustainability. Our long-term missionaries and ministry partners are doing fantastic work every day. Your short-term mission trip will be specifically designed to support that effort while inspiring your group’s relationship with Jesus.
