Filter of Hope Mission Trip

Join us in the Dominican Republic for the high school Filter of Hope Missions trip!

The mission of Filter of Hope “is to change lives and create hope by providing clean drinking water and sharing the ‘living water’ of Jesus Christ with families worldwide.” Filter of Hope partners with local churches, so this trip is a great opportunity to partner with God’s Church around the world and join in the work that God’s people are already doing. This trip gives students an opportunity to meet a tangible need of clean drinking water and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Preparation and Debrief Meetings Schedule

These meetings are required for students going on the trip and are an essential part of developing a Biblical and healthy vision for missions, justice, and mercy. Our hope for this trip is not just that it will be a great one week experience but that the trip will equip students to engage with missions, justice, and mercy ministry for a life-time. These meetings are designed to equip students for that task and will include training, assigned readings, and challenges.

All team meetings will be held from 12:30-2pm at the Erie Campus in the Student Ministry Room. Lunch will be provided.
