Upcoming Mission Trips

Learn more below about our upcoming mission trips. Anyone interested in joining a Church at Charlotte mission trip should begin by filling out a ServeGlobal Mission Trip Application. If you have been on a mission trip with Church at Charlotte in the past, you may fill out the ServeGlobal Mission Trip Re-Application form. If you have any questions, please contact outreach@churchatcharlotte.org.

Our global ministry is a response to Jesus’ command to “go and make disciples of all nations.” When we go, we are helping others to know Jesus more intimately and they are contributing to our spiritual growth as well. It is a mutually beneficial ministry. In my experience, there is something special about going into another culture and spending time with brothers and sisters in Christ who face different challenges and whose relationship with God might look different than our own. We come home challenged and encouraged and also satisfied knowing that we served others.

If you are interested in any of these trip opportunities, please email outreach@churchatcharlotte.org, and a trip leader will be in touch. We will help you see where your gifts fit best and also guide you through the process, including the financial piece. We want to make it easy for you to experience international ministry. Involvement in global ministry has great benefits both for you and those you will serve.

Cuba

Ethiopia

We have a trips that help build facilities for Langano school. This is a school in a very rural area of Ethiopia that is a muslim dominated community. This school provides a quality education to students who are being taught by Christian teachers showing them the love of Christ.

We also send teams of ladies to lead a spiritual retreat with the girls living in the Deborah House. These girls are so vulnerable and have come from deep poverty. They are looking for a better life and this is an amazing opportunity for us to love them and help them see their worth.

We also take teams to Langano to help at the Sports Friends youth camps. This opportunity is available next summer.

We work with a church in the region of Adama and are hoping to take a team to do a youth conference in partnership with a Kale Heywot church there.

Planned Trips:
TBD – Trip to the Muslim Outreach Project to help with a training and Deborah House Spiritual Retreat. Trip led by Joe Harding.

East Asia

Because of the need to protect our partners on the ground from government attention, we travel to East Asia usually only one time a year and take very small teams. 

Planned Trips:
TBD – Trip to Barnabas and Friends training center in Chang Rai, Thailand. Trip led by Ryan Falls.
