Who is Group Mission Trips?

Based in Northern Colorado, Group Mission Trip's mission is to serve others through home repair and community service experiences that transform communities and help participants, residents, and partners grow closer to Jesus. Since our inception in the early 1990s, more than 523,700 participants have served more than 16 million volunteer hours, directly affecting those who long to see the compassionate and practical love of Jesus.

What is a Red Shirt?

Our staff are the backbone of our ministry. They come from around the country to organize the details and logistics of our mission trips. 2-3 summer staff travel from training in Colorado to mission trip locations across the USA in a Group Mission Trips vehicle, helping create a mission trip experience for up to 400 participants who come to serve a community in need at each location. And the best part... they do it all while wearing smiles and iconic red staff t-shirts. You'll meet lifelong friends, gain hands-on work experience, and most importantly, show the love and light of Jesus! When you put on your Red Shirt, you're stepping into a family and an unmatched legacy of service.
