Mission trips are central to the mission and vision of Palm Valley Church. Sharing the Good News locally, nationally, and internationally has been at the heart of Palm Valley Church since its inception. Mission trips help us obey the great commission. Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” — Matthew 28: 18 – 20
Going on a mission trip helps in the transforming work Christ does in each of us. Each participant returns changed. Obedience, learning to trust God, learning to be flexible and not be control of everything are spiritual disciplines which are developed during mission trips.
