MISSION TRIPS
MISSION TRIPS are powerful!

Mission trips are the core of CrossRoads Missions. We provide opportunities for churches and individuals to serve more effectively than they could on their own by facilitating the trips and partnering with local ministries in need of outside assistance. We welcome motivated, service-minded groups and individuals of all ages to serve alongside us.

Why are mission trips valuable?

Mission trips are powerful!

They open our eyes to what the real world is truly like, changing our perspectives and the course of our lives. Through short-term mission trips we experience what it means to be ‘the hands and feet of Jesus.’ That service teaches us about sacrifice, suffering, and sustainable development. Serving in missions also connects us to the worldwide body of Christ. It impacts all who participate to the core of who they are, an impact that can resonate across generations.

So, are mission trips valuable?

We offer mission trips to the following fields:

Piedras Negras, Mexico – The longest-running geographical areas we serve in, CrossRoads Missions sends groups for weeklong trips to this city, located just over the U.S./Mexico border. There, we have worked for years to construct the neighborhood of Piedra Angular, where more than three dozen homes have been built for local families committed to missional living.

New Orleans – Community service is one of the main goals of our groups who serve in “The Big Easy.” Though our focus is Though our focus is centered in the Arabi community in the heart of the St. Bernard Parish, we also serve the surrounding inner-city neighborhoods. Our volunteers and full-time staff in New Orleans work with an assortment of existing churches and organizations in these neighborhoods in various forms of outreach.

Appalachia – Based out of Floyd County, Kentucky, we organize a series of trips of various lengths. Our participants engage in a variety of community outreaches, whether that means renovating existing homes, ministering at government housing facilities, gathering school supplies for children in need, or any of a number of other options, Christ-focused outreach is always our goal.

ServeLouisville – Working with local churches and the Fuller Center for Housing, our volunteers and full-time staff  transform and renovate damaged abandoned homes in the city. In addition to building homes in Louisville, (a record-15 last year), we also hold special events like last year’s Blitz Build, where volunteers and local professionals combined their efforts to build the frame of five new homes in a single day.
