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.
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.
