What Is a Project? How Mission Trips Work » International Commission

You and your church will go at the invitation of a hosting church or association to work with them in a week of evangelistic outreach and discipleship.


Each team will work side-by-side with the leadership and members of the hosting church. People from all walks of life, ages 13-85, are used effectively in these projects.


The two basic areas of project work are visitation and evangelistic services. Participants often spend two or three hours each morning and each afternoon in scheduled visitations. They witness in homes, parks, factories, prisons, schools, and wherever the host church desires.  Many other evangelistic opportunities come outside the scheduled visitation.  Interpreters and bilingual tools are used as aids in communicating the Gospel. Host churches often hold nightly evangelistic services. The local pastor participates in the invitation and counseling in order to bond the respondents to the local church.


IC provides training and preparation for the sending and hosting churches.  We will assist the churches in understanding cultural differences, language barriers, and discovering how God can best use them.
