Global Outreach


Global Outreach

The ends of the earth have come to us. At Vanguard, we have several outreach efforts throughout the year that focus on speaking and showing life, hope, and truth found in Jesus. The GEO office wants to encourage and mobilize you to use your education in the here and now, allowing your classroom education come to life as you serve in the US and around the world, engaging in the Great Commission. We no longer have to go to the other side of the world to find the 'ends of the earth' - today we can go in our own backyard. From building friendships with the over 20,000 refugees here in Orange County to trekking in the remote villages of Indonesia, Jesus can use you right now.

The harvest is full. Let's go.

Spring Break

Each year, students are able to participate in local and/or global outreach during the one-week spring break in March.

Summer Break

Each summer break, students can join short-term outreach teams that range from 1-3 weeks. From serving foster care youth in the United States to sharing the gospel to an unreached people group tribe in the heart of Indonesia, we value sending out teams that are utilizing their skills and education to meet Kingdom needs.

Our trips are developed in partnership with ministries, missionaries and churches locally and globally. Teams train together prior to departure to prepare financially, spiritually, and develop practical ministry tools to be equipped for the ministry. 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 intern or serve for 1-3 months over the summer, we encourage you to come talk to us. Some of the locations students have done SOS include Thailand, Tanzania, Kenya, Philippines, Uganda, India, Asia, Costa Rica and more. Academic credit may be available depending upon location and ministry functions.

We invite you to take the next step
