International Mission Trips

Group Mission Trips offers international mission trips for all ages through two partner organizations (Amoveo Group and Mazatlán Missions). Going on an international mission trip gives you a fresh perspective about the work God does in local communities throughout the world. With deeper insight, you'll return home transformed and more aware of the different cultures and misperceptions about where you're serving. You will be inspired to grow in your relationship with Jesus as you step out of regular routines and into another culture.

Amoveo Group and Mazatlán Missions are rooted in the countries they serve. They have strong relationships with the locals and have a firm grasp of what the actual needs are in the community. When you arrive, you come alongside their ongoing efforts. These trusted, established partnerships ensure your service is truly sustainable and leaves a lasting impact. Their local and abroad team carefully crafts the schedule and the entire experience so you can be fully present with your team.

As you disconnect from everyday pressures, you'll establish a familial community as you encounter new experiences together. You'll find a willingness to be present and engaged as you work hard and develop relationships with residents, community partners, and teammates. 

Group Mission Trips do not operate these trips. We are simply connecting those that would like to serve internationally with trusted partner organizations that can safely and effectively run those trips.

Customize Your International Mission Trip

No matter the age or size of your group, you will experience the transformation that happens when you combine exploration and service on your next international mission trip. Our partners can help you customize an international mission trip with any size group, family, or friends. We've customized trips for individuals, families, school groups, sports teams, dance teams, companies, youth groups, and more. There's an opportunity for everyone to serve on an international mission trip with one of our trusted partners!

2023 Program Theme

We all know the destruction and pain that fire can bring, but God also presents fire as purifying and refining throughout Scripture. So why would God choose fire to refine us? It separates the impurities and leaves what is valuable. Friend, when God brings or allows the fiery furnace of discomfort in our lives, it does not burn indiscriminately. It burns intentionally to make us more like Him. We can trust that it is always for our refinement and never for our destruction.

Each day we'll explore how God forges our faith. Through each powerful, transformational mission trip experience, your group will see how God wants us to know we're justified through faith and given access to his perfect peace and grace (Romans 5:1-4). Join us this summer as we explore how we're all FORGED by faith!
