Travel to the Dominican Republic on this family friendly trip to work in Santo Domingo neighborhoods with our partner, Mission Emanuel. We will be assisting on construction projects but with an emphasis placed on time spent in fellowship rather than on physical work. While we encourage families to come on this trip, all are welcome.

Highland Park Pres has been partnering with Haiti Outreach Ministries (HOM) for the last ten years. We partner with HOM as they seek to meet the Haitian people’s physical and spiritual needs of the poorest communities in the western hemisphere. This trip will focus on construction, but with lots of time building community with our Haitian friends.

Everything begins with water. More than 840,000 people are estimated to die each year as a result of unsafe drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene. HP Pres will be working with Living Water International to drill a well for a Haitian community. We will also be teaching hygiene principles to the women and children. No experience necessary!

If you are gifted at teaching, using a paintbrush, playing with kids, or pretty much anything else, you can be a blessing on this trip to Kenya. In a remote community overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro, the HP Pres team will conduct a Pastoral Training Conference, assist with a VBS, do repairs and maintenance at the local Imbirikani Girls School, and build churches and schools.

5th & 6th graders are traveling to San Antonio for a life-transforming experience! San Antonio is a place of desperate need, where one out of five children goes to bed hungry every night and over 200,000 live below the poverty line. Together, we will grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus through time in God’s Word, worship, community, and serving in San Antonio.

The message of Christ’s love transcends language. You will be surprised by how much you can communicate without words! It can also be a great learning experience to not always understand everything that is going on around you. Depending on the trip, we will have translators available to help be our voice in ministering directly with people. Building a great relationship with your translator, opens the door to better communication and a guide to local culture.
Many of our participants raise funds even if they have the financial means to cover the cost. We believe that there is a Biblical basis for fundraising. This is also a great opportunity to build prayer support for your trip. We have training materials to help you in the fundraising process. HP Pres also offers partial scholarship to those with financial need, and in certain cases we are able to implement a payment plan.

Mission trips have 3-4 required training meetings before the trip so that you will be equipped to minister once you arrive at your destination.
Check the vaccines and medicines list at cdc.org/travel. Visit your doctor or local clinic (ideally, 4-6 weeks before your trip) to get vaccines or any medications you may need. Also, make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. These vaccines include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot.
Most mission trips include about a day to sight-see and relax.
