“The mark of a great church is not its seating capacity, but its sending capacity.” – Mike Stachura
You can make a difference during a short-term mission trip! Athens Christian Center schedules three to four missiont trips annually! It is our goal to inspire a heart for missions with in and around us. For 2011 there are thus far three missin trips scheduled for the Dominican Republic. God is powerfully at work in this part of the world and there is a tremendous reception to the gospel among the Dominican people. The people of Santiago are looking for hope and are responding to the gospel in great waves.
You will have opportunities to participate in various outreaches like children’s ministry, feeding programs for the poor and hungry, visitations to our Cien Fuego Children's Center and evangelism at multiple sites. In addition, some teams walk to mountain villages and conduct community outreaches in parks and squares to share Christ. Your group will partner with growing ministries to build them up and support God’s work through them.
