As Christ followers, we have been called to carry on the mission of Jesus. The question that we should be wrestling with is how to engage well in this great commission in a way that fosters long-term impact, even in the context of a short-term trip. The BridgeBuilders program was created to train disciples of Jesus to do this well, especially when crossing cultures. The experience is designed to combine the service component of a typical mission trip with training that will equip participants to have a greater impact in whatever context that God calls them to. Bridge-Builders provides a reciprocal program where participants and locals are mutually enriched. We place a heavy emphasis on listening to and learning from the community as we serve alongside our neighbors. We like to say that it's more than a mission trip; it is an opportunity to deepen your relationship with Jesus, while joining in the work that God is already doing in our community.
