Global Outreach

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” -Acts 1:8

Jesus was clear that we are called to go to the ends of the earth in order to share the good news of the Kingdom of God. At Vanguard, we have several outreach efforts each year that focus on doing just this. Through Global Outreach, our hope is that as you feel called to go, we can support you to step out in faith in that. We have various levels of global outreach ranging from short one-week trips to spending a summer or even a whole year serving alongside missionaries around the world.

Spring Break 2017:

Hands Across The Border (HATB) :: Serve with Las Tres Palmas in Ensenada, Mexico. There, our students are put into various teams focusing on children, women, construction and others to serve a local shelter that cares for moms and their children. The trip also includes serving and leading worship at local church services.
Dates: March 11-18
Cost: $500

Summer Break 2017:

*All costs are estimates. Upon completion of teams and airfares, costs will be finalized.

Northern Ireland :: VU will be sending another team to Derry, Northern Ireland to partner with Cornerstone City Church’s annual I Heart Derry ministry. During their time, students will be working with children, doing beautification projects around the city, building relationships with locals and much more.
Dates: June 28 – July 12
Cost: $3000

Arkansas :: This team will be working with COMPACT Family Services in Hot Spring, Arkansas. Focusing on foster care for youth, teens and young adults, this team will be putting their skills and passions to meet practical needs. The facility houses several dozen children and youth as well as pregnant teens.
Dates: May 13-20

Indonesia :: This group will be working with Mission One Eleven, spending five weeks with an unreached people group tribe in Indonesia. Students will be required to enroll in a Spring 2017 course, meeting weekly, and will be trained primarily through learning how to communicate 29 Bible stories as a story-teller.
Dates: May 8 – June 12
Cost: $2500 (without airfare)

Summer of Service (SOS):

For the last several years, Global Outreach has had the privilege of challenging students to take part in more than the traditional 2-3 week trip. The SOS program offers ministry opportunities that are the perfect next step for those who have been on a Vanguard short term mission trip. If you desire to serve the Lord for an entire summer, we encourage you to come talk to us and see where God may lead you. Some of the locations students have done SOS in include Thailand, Tanzania, Kenya, Philippines, Uganda, India, and parts of Asia.
