Short-Term Trips

Our short-term trips are designed to create meaningful opportunities where people encounter Jesus. While serving on these trips, you will be traveling with a group of people from ECC that serves in association with our mission partners. All details are administered by us.

Join us and help make a difference as we build the Kingdom of God through reaching our world!

This outreach is in partnership with We Will Go Ministries, led by David and Amy Lancaster, who carry a vision for complete transformation of the city of Jackson. For the past two years, we have sent a youth team to support this inner-city ministry, which has been immensely fruitful.

San Lucas, Guatemala

Earlier this year we sent a team down to help with building a house for Oscar & Sharon Perez who have been faithfully serving the Christian Ministries Light & Life Church and Centro Educativa Getsemani School for over 25 years. Along with their church family in Guatemala, as well as family and friends from the states, this project began last year. We want to continue to assist them in this construction work. The purpose of this trip will be to continue with construction for the house however there is always room for the Lord to provide opportunities to share the gospel in other ways. It will be a great trip for anyone wanting to get their hands dirty, no experience necessary.
