Summer International Missions

Serve Abroad with JBU's Summer Missions!

What is a mission trip? Perhaps the phrase brings up images of a team working together to build a well or to give shots to orphans at a hospital or to share their testimony in front of a church. While all of these images can be accurate, a mission trip is so much more than just the sum of certain activities and experiences. Rather, a mission trip is an opportunity to get involved in the work of God's kingdom across the world, coming alongside brothers and sisters in the faith and sacrificing time and comfort to serve others.

At JBU, each mission trip has a different focus that is specially suited to the needs of the local community.
