WHAT CAN I DO ON A MISSION TRIP?
Churches, families, organizations, and other groups are invited to be part of But God Ministries by sending a team to work in Jonestown, Mississippi. Mission trips are scheduled during the summer months for Saturday to Friday. During all other months, there are two options: Friday to Sunday and Monday to Friday. A team can plan a multi-purpose trip or focus on only one task.
Depending on the team, there could be construction work, medical work, dental work, agricultural work, work with local children, evangelism, Bible studies, Vacation Bible School activities for children, sports activities such as basketball, and other work. There is a place for everyone regardless of his/her skills.
When planning a trip please keep in mind the 7 SPHERES of But God Ministries.
