Domestic mission trips play a powerful role in the United States' relationship with the Church. When Jesus commanded us to go into the world and share the Gospel, he was quick to include instructions to go into our own backyard as well.
At Praying Pelican Missions, we believe in the impact of sharing the Gospel, both domestically and internationally. From our hometown of Minneapolis, to our fellow citizens on the island of Puerto Rico, domestic mission trips are diverse in opportunities to serve, cultural experiences, and community needs. Serve on a mission trip alongside a local pastor who is passionate about reaching fellow Americans with the love of Christ and impact a local community as you serve alongside established ministry partners doing incredible work in your host location. Chicago, Miami, Alaska, Appalachia, and Washington DC are just a few of the dynamic and engaging locations desiring teams to come and serve on a mission trip.
Oftentimes, mission teams think of international locations first when planning a mission trip, but we encourage you to consider serving domestically. We challenge you not to think of domestic mission trips as only a “stepping stone” for your group. Instead, we desire to see rooted, long-term partnerships established for your team here, just as they can be internationally!
Domestic mission trips are excellent for groups looking to stay closer to home, keep travel costs down, or to serve in an area of our country you feel particularly drawn to. Check out our list of locations and their various community needs and stay home this year, serving in the USA!
