What is the Biblical foundation for global missions?
The Biblical foundation for our call to preach the Gospel to the nations comes from Jesus command in Matthew 28:19-20. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” It is our responsibility as Christians to take the good news of the Gospel to the people who have never heard.
What does a team really do on a short-term mission trip?
We are there to serve the missionary of that particular area with whatever their ministry needs are. This could include things such as construction projects, servant evangelism, facilitating training sessions, and many others. We always pray that these trips are times of growth for the team as we serve selflessly.
What does the cost of the trip cover?
The cost of the trip includes travel expenses (airfare), food (3 meals per day) and lodging while on the trip. It does not include personal spending money or food during travel.
Will I receive any training?
Yes, training meetings will be mandatory. For several weeks prior to the trip, we will be fasting and praying together and meeting to prepare for what we’re hoping to accomplish on this particular trip.

Do I have to be a member of HPC to apply for a trip?

Am I required to know the language of the country I’ll be traveling to?
No. We will have translators on each trip.
How do I raise the funds necessary for the trip?
