SOUTH ASIA TREKKING TRIP

Join our church as we partner with East-West International Ministries and travel to South Asia to take the gospel to some of the toughest places on Earth.

East-West exists to mobilize the Body of Christ to evangelize the lost and equip local believers to multiply disciples and healthy churches among unreached peoples and/or in restricted access communities.

Experience God’s Hand at work in the world and see your own life changed. This trip is evangelism focused and works in partnership with local churches to help them reach their communities for Christ. This trip will allow you to discover a new world while transforming it with the power of the gospel.

South Asia is filled with people who have never heard the Name of Jesus, but the few local believers are determined reach every corner of their nation with the gospel.

On this trip, you’ll work alongside these believers to share the gospel in remote villages and establish God’s Kingdom in one of the most unreached areas of the world. And as you do so, you’ll encourage and equip the local church to multiply.

This trip will consist of 10-15 miles of hiking/backpacking each day in a high altitude environment (7,000-12,000 ft.). The terrain consists of loose rock, stream crossings, and steep, rocky incline trails. Each team member will need to have a high level of fitness and be able to hike with a 40-50 pound backpack each day. Team members will spend most of this trip outdoors.
