Spend two weeks on an Encounter trip to learn, serve and experience ministry among unreached people groups.

Through an encounter trip, you will explore long-term missionary work and consider your future involvement. You will visit an indigenous people group, hear from missionaries on the field and see what it takes to bring the gospel to the very ends of the earth.

From the world’s many distinct people groups, roughly 1/3 would be considered unreached with the gospel. What part will you play?
