We believe the greatest transformations happen when we work together—hand in hand with local communities on their prioritized projects. We have multi-faceted trips that are designed to address several previously identified community needs.
We welcome youth groups and multi-generational teams. We tailor each trip to meet the ministry goals and skills of the team members to provide an opportunity all those who sincerely want to serve others. Our trips are family friendly. We do not have age limits for team members. All have something to offer.
Our full-time dedicated FFP staff will make sure you have safe food, comfortable mission-style lodging, ample purified water, experienced in-country transportation, qualified translators and capable security. They prepare with the local church leaders before your arrival so that schedules for worship, vacation bible school and other activities are prepared in advance and material are bought and prepared.

What does a mission trip look like?
Mission trips typically consist of 12-25 people, ages 5 to 65+. Groups stay at accommodations near the community where they’ll serve. Trip fees cover lodging, food, purified water, in-country transportation, translators, full-time FFP staff, pre-trip planning and post-trip follow-up, security and construction supplies.
We have found that trusting God that you have something to offer others and serving together will bless you, lead to very meaningful and productive trips.
Experience God in ways you have not imagine . . . and change your own life forever.
