Global Outreach

Global Outreach

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. Our hope is that as you feel called to go, we can support you to step out in faith and watch the Lord work in and through you in unexpected ways. 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 and organizations around the world.

Spring Break

Each year, students are able to participate on local and global trip teams during the one-week spring break in March. These trips range from $250-$600 per student.

Summer Break

Over each summer break, students have the opportunity to join short-term summer outreach teams that range from 1-3 weeks. Our trips are developed closely in partnership with ministries, missionaries and churches locally and globally that meet real needs and build the Kingdom. Teams work together for six months prior to departure to prepare financially, spiritually, and develop practical ministry tools to take with them. From serving foster care youth in the United States to sharing the gospel to an unreached people group tribe in the heart of Indonesia, students are trained, empowered and equipped to fulfill the Great Commission. All trips have a staff or faculty leader and range from $500-$3500. Fundraising training and support is provided as well as a variety of small scholarship opportunities through the GEO office.

Summer of Service (S.O.S.)

Interested in serving longer than a short term trip? Global Outreach challenges students to take part in more than the traditional 2-3 week trip through our Summer of Service (SOS) program. If you desire to serve the Lord for 1-3 months over the 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, Asia, Costa Rica and more. Academic credit may be available depending upon location and ministry functions.
