Native American Mission Trips

Native American mission trips are a wonderful way to join together with believers of a like background in fellowship and service for an adventure of a lifetime. Finding acceptance on a reservation or even out in the real world can be challenging for a Native American who has been saved by the grace of God.

Because the Native American culture is so richly based in religion and tradition if can be difficult for a believer’s family to grasp the concept of a life lived anew. This is what makes Native American mission trips so essential to the heart of the Native American believer.

In coming together brothers and sisters in Christ can share their experiences, learn from one another and find support and encouragement along the way . . . all while honoring their heritage and serving a God whose radical grace is always worth taking the path less traveled.

“I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron.”
Isaiah 45:2 KJV
