Trevecca Around the Globe
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.”
Spring break trip: March 4 - 10.
Monterrey, Mexico: We will be joining Back2Back Ministries for a week. Back2Back Ministries is an international Christian non-profit organization that is dedicated to being a voice for orphans. Back2Back serves children’s homes and impoverished communities, by partnering with individuals, schools, churches, civic groups, and businesses to create a bridge between people in need and people with resources. Back2Back is committed to a five-point child development plan, meeting physical, spiritual, emotional, social, and educational needs, to provide holistic care. Back2Back facilitates mission trips providing an opportunity to serve orphans and impoverished families in a developing country. During the day, teams serve at area children’s homes and communities. During the evening, live worship and small group time for debriefing is designed to foster personal growth.
Belgrade, Serbia: We will be joining NCM’s Refugee Response Team who are partnering with other organizations to provide refugee relief in light of the current refugee crisis. This includes distributing meals and necessary non-food items. We will also join the team in building relationships with refugees to learn languages, play games, watch movies, listen to music, and hear their stories. The team’s desire is to find ways to restore hope, humanity, dignity and community.
Manila, Philippines: We will be joining Asia Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary and churches in Manila in focusing on how the body of Christ is responding to children at risk, hunger, child poverty, and urban slums. We will work with those who have intentional ministries in environmental care, poverty alleviation, and development and build relationships in the varying communities of Manila.
