Mission, at its very core, is living out the call of the gospel – To love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. We believe that God is at work, renewing all of creation, and invites us, as disciples of Jesus Christ, to do the same. Trevecca Around the Globe seeks to catch a vision of God at work in the world and take part in the redemptive story He is writing for the world.
In the words of David Livermore, we view “our trips as an integral part of our lifelong journey of following Jesus, rather than just a two-week project.”

Tijuana/San Diego Border Educational Trip
Date: March 2nd-9th (subject to change in near future based on flights) | Cost: $1,573 (Approximately)
Purpose: This team will be partnering with The Global Immersion Project on The Immigrant's Journey Immersion Trip. Immigration has become one of the most conflict-inducing, polarizing issues within our country. In this Immersion Trip, we find ourselves in the middle of injustice, pain, collective suffering, celebration, hope, and reconciliation as we learn from & with US Americans and Mexicans who are actively pursuing peace.
The Immigrants’ Journey Immersion Trip is a formational and educational trip that:
- Immerses you into the human story of immigration giving you access to otherwise inaccessible people and places.
- Compels you to move the topic of immigration from a polarizing, political issue to a human, social issue and teaches you how to care for the strangers in your midst the way that Jesus did.
- Trains you in the creative and costly work of everyday peacemaking by exposing you to some of the best peacemakers in the world embedded in the borderlands of San Diego/Tijuana.
