Over spring break, Lipscomb students are participating in 19 total mission trips with destinations including Baja, Haiti, New York City, Honduras and the United Kingdom.
Missions coordinator, Erin Gupton, challenged every student to consider being a part of a mission trip while they are students at Lipscomb.
Gupton noted that students are not only able to experience a once-in-a lifetime Spring Break but can also make a change in the community and worldwide.
“The purpose of the trips range from orphan care to building homes to working with local non-profits,” Gupton said. “Each team works with a designated host partner from year to year so their work can be effective and sustainable. We assess the goals of each team in partnership with the host partner each year, so we can make sure that we’re actually helping.”
Although the spring break trips are all in full swing this year, students still have the opportunity to get involved in more trips coming up.
“We have two Mission Fairs per year, both of which have already passed for this academic year,” Gupton said. “However, some teams are still looking for team members for upcoming trips.”
If you want to keep up-to-date on the mission team trips, or if you are interested in participating in a mission trip yourself, visit Lipscomb’s missions website for more information.
