Mission Trip FAQ

Why should I go on a mission trip?

Just to name a few reasons:

  • You get to see the kingdom grow. We see new faces each time we visit and even more humbling, hear how we were a part of that new life in Christ joining the church.
  • It will awaken a passion and a vision to see every tribe, tongue and nation worship the one true God and ascribe to him the glory due to his great name!
  • You will know and experience the heart of God. Our God is a missionary God, sending his Son, Jesus, to seek and save the lost. When we follow suit, we experience the depth of the Gospel in a new way.
  • You will be able to encourage missionaries and ministry leaders in these other areas. Just seeing you show up encourages them!

Declare His glory among the nations; His marvelous deeds among all peoples. -I Chronicles 16:24

What if I don't speak the language of the country we are visiting?

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. By building a great relationship with your translator, it opens the door to better communication and a guide to local culture.

What if I can't afford the cost of the trip?

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. HPPC also offers partial scholarship to those with financial need.

Will there be training before we leave on the trip?

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.
