Youth Mission Trips 2022

High School Mission Trip

July 8-15, 2023
Porch de Salomon has hosted short-term mission teams in Guatemala since 2006; in recent years over 20 each year! Most teams’ primary focus is building small concrete block homes for impoverished indigenous families (no building expertise required of the team!). Some teams also provide free village medical or dental clinics and many work with our Porch locals and conduct fun, flexible, afternoon Bible schools in the villages we visit.
Cost $300-$500 (TBD based on Fundraising. Hopefully it will be less. Scholarships are always available and we don’t want cost to stand in the way of someone attending).

Register below by January 8th ($100 deposit)

Middle School Mission Trip

July 9 - 15
Appalachia Service Project provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation — bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. Since 1969, ASP has made homes warmer, safer, and drier for families and provided transformational service experiences for volunteers. Each year, more than 15,000 volunteers serve with ASP, providing critical repairs for more than 350 families.
Cost $200-$300 (TBD based on Fundraising. Hopefully it will be less. Scholarships are always available and we don’t want cost to stand in the way of someone attending).
