Summer Mission Trips

Welcome! We’re excited to be putting together two multi-campus teams for this summer:  one to serve residents of impoverished areas of Detroit this June 19-23, and another to serve orphans and refugees in Reynosa, MX this July 20-26. The June trip is shorter and will last four days (Wednesday evening through Sunday afternoon); the July trip will last seven full days (early Saturday morning departure through Friday night return).

Participants will be responsible to raise the funds needed in order to participate, but please don't let this deter you. We are ready to help with this! Group fundraisers will be organized and help and coaching will be provided for the raising of your individual support.

Why should someone go on a short-term mission trip?

The Mission Trips


Is God calling you to join people from West Campus, City Church and Iglesia de la Ciudad to minister to neighbors in need this June? Our team will be hosted by the Hesed Community Church ministry of the Urban Apostolic Network, led by Pastors Nate Bull and Mark VanAndel. We will travel to Detroit to experience the context and meet the people in which Hesed Community Church operates on a daily basis. We will do this learning through conversations, experiences, meals and service over four days. We'll engage in remodeling a house used for Hesed's ministry and participate with Nate Bull in some street ministry outreach. Neither construction skills nor outreach experience are required, just a willingness to learn and to be used by the Lord.


Might God be calling you to join people from West Campus, City Church and Iglesia in ministering to neighbors in need in late July? Our team will be hosted by Rio Bravo Ministries and will focus on three things:  working on facility improvement projects, interacting with & encouraging orphans living on the ministry compound, and ministering to Haitian refugees off-site. We may also run a 3-morning Vacation Bible School program through one of Rio Bravo’s local, partner churches.
