2023 Missions Trips

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…

Matthew 28:19

Matthew 28:18-20 - In the Great Commission, Jesus calls us to go. The Chapel has been blessed with people that are passionate about being obedient to Christ in this. We have pursued the furtherance of His Kingdom as we have gone out into our community, country, and world to share the love and Word of God. Witness is part of our DNA, and if the Lord wills, we will continue to take the Good News to those who are without it.

We try to prioritize the equipping of the priesthood of the believer (Ephesians 4:12, 1 Peter 2:9), preparing our church to minister the gospel in their everyday lives; but, we also organize a few mission trips each year that send our people out. Each trip will join a long term missionary that we have lasting relationship with. We do what we can to help them accomplish their long-term vision and goals, and leave with a burden to continue to pray for them.

We hope to take 4 trips this year. Please read and pray over the descriptions. If the Lord leads you to go, please apply by trip deadlines (listed beneath trip titles).

Space may be limited, so apply ASAP. All costs and dates are subject to change, but not without warning.


  • How do I sign up?
    All interested missionaries must complete the online application - registration deadlines are beneath each trip title. Your application will be reviewed and prayed over. Then you will be contacted with the next steps. After you have been contacted, a $200 deposit will be required to reserve your spot on the team.

  • What does the cost cover?
    All of your needs will be met. All transportation, lodging, meals, and ministry expenses are included.

  • Can I raise support for the trips?
    Absolutely. As a matter of fact, we prefer that you raise support even if you don't have to. Raising support does more than just cover costs; it gives other people an opportunity to participate in ministry they may not be able to otherwise. More importantly, it is also a great way to ask for prayer. Mandatory meetings will be held for each trip where we will offer instruction and help in how to do this.

Clarkston, Georgia |  June 4-9  |  $300
High School Trip

Register by: APRIL 16

Our high schoolers will be headed to serve the nations in Clarkston, GA. The nature of this trip has changed slightly, which can and probably will happen! We will be helping a local church plant (whose pastor we have previously worked alongside in SE Asia) revive an older church building, preparing the facility to serve the Kingdom and reach international families once again.

Detroit, Michigan  |  June 25-July 1  |  $900

Register by: MARCH 19

We’ll be serving alongside a long term team, interacting with and serving Middle Eastern peoples living in the greater Detroit area to sow seeds of the gospel. We will work in an urban farm near a mosque, practice English in city parks, and maybe even help with exercise classes. And, of course, we’ll eat a LOT of great food together! There’s something for everyone on this trip, and the only qualifications are a love for Jesus and a willingness to love those who don’t yet know Him! 

Clarkston, Georgia |  July 23-29  |  $TBD
Adult Trip

Register by: MARCH 19

It’s going to be hot and we’re going to be working hard to help a new fellowship repair and rework some rooms in their building so that future missions groups can be housed there while they serve the large refugee community in the area. We’re on the lookout for folks to join us on this trip who have specific building skills (like carpenters and plumbers), and for those who just want to roll up their sleeves and lend a hand. And, if we’ve got anything left in the tank at the end of the day, we’ll go out in the community in the evenings, visiting and interacting with those in the local refugee community.

Nigeria, Africa  |  Mid-Late October 2023  |  $3500

Register by: APRIL 16

This is our first trip to Nigeria.  Ministries on the ground include an orphanage, widow care, farming and a K-12 school. We’ll be going as servants, willing to do whatever we’re asked to do. The focus of this trip will likely be working with teachers and students at the school with possible outreach opportunities to the community and leper colony. Spots will be limited.

ACTs  - Disaster Relief

It is hard to schedule around disasters, but they come nonetheless. When they do, we hope to be ready to respond with practical help and the love of Christ. Action Crisis Teams (ACTs) is a gospel-focused disaster relief ministry managed by brothers from our own church. Whether you are a builder by trade, or have never touched a hammer in your life; you can help on a disaster relief trip. We make a point to care for people more than we care for property. We will work hard on homes in order to earn the right to share the love, comfort, and gospel of Christ with those that have suffered disaster.

These trips will come up throughout the year as there is need. If you would like your name to be included on a list of people we contact when disasters strike, please apply below. Please note: Applying does not mean you are committed to participate, just that you are interested in being contacted.

These are the places where we believe the Lord is leading us in 2023.  Long-term missionaries are working year-round in each location, and we’ll be joining them on short-term trips to serve in any way that is helpful to them.

Would you pray about joining us on one of these trips?
