Globally

Our mission of helping people take next steps with Jesus is carried on through our National and Global Strategic Partners. There are a few ways you can get involved in serving outside the city of Indianapolis. 

Impact Trips

E91 IMPACT Trips are short-term trips intended to help goers take the next step with Jesus as they are equipped to serve others. IMPACT Trips are not the end but only the beginning of a growing servant heart. Teams serve together before they go and are equipped with next steps once they return home on how to engage in continued service. As teams extend Jesus to others, they have an opportunity to experience Jesus in community through team building and trip projects.

Apply for an IMPACT Trip

There are some ways to be a part of our IMPACT Trips. While some are called to go others can partner through prayer and financial support. If you would like to join the team members through prayer, please follow along with their journeys on the Outreach Community Facebook group. If you would like to help send someone through financial support to the general fundraising goals for each team you can do that here! 100% of money donated is tax-deductible and used to send people on our E91 Impact Trips.

Upcoming IMPACT Trips

IMPACT Cambodia (March 4th - 14th 2017) CLOSED

This trip is headed to visit Rapha House in Cambodia. Rapha House started as a vision of three Christian native Cambodian leaders. These Cambodian leaders had repeatedly witnessed girls disappearing from their villages to be sold and exploited. Rapha House co-founder Joe Garman had been working alongside these leaders for years, but this horrific reality was brought to his attention firsthand as he witnessed the near trafficking of a young woman who had been sold by her parents. Luckily, the Cambodian leaders were able to intercede for and stop the traffickers from taking the young lady. But when Joe heard about the hundreds and thousands of children who were being sold into slavery in Cambodia and surrounding countries, it broke his heart. These Cambodian leaders had the desire and the will to combat for these children but needed the structure, programming, and funding to do this work.

Joe returned to the US and shared the issue and the vision with his daughter, Stephanie Garman Freed, and together they began to pull in experts and partners with a heart to combat child slavery.

In 2003, Rapha House began their safe house program for children who had been rescued from slavery and sexual exploitation. After more than a decade of growth, Rapha House is now an international safe house program which has won the favor of the governments in the countries in which it works. It is an organization which practices excellence in the standards of caring for children who have been rescued from these traumatic situations.

The Rapha House model is to find native people who are qualified and passionate about combating the issues of child slavery and sexual exploitation in their countries and equipping them to combat on behalf of these children.

Rapha is a Hebrew word which means “healing.” And healing is the heartbeat of Rapha House.

 

IMPACT Austria (April 16th - 28th 2017) Closing SOON!

This trip is working at Haus Edelweiss serving the students and staff at TCM International Institute. TCM is dedicated to taking Christ to the millions and has found the most effective way to do that is by training Christians for ministry.  A Short-term worker’s God-given gifts and talents will be utilized to serve Christian leaders who come to our main teaching campus near Vienna, Austria for ministry training.  Jobs vary from house-and-grounds projects (mowing lawns, etc.) to food preparation and serving, setting tables, dusting, sweeping, changing bed linens, doing laundry, etc.  A short-term worker MUST have a servant's heart to help the Haus Edelweiss staff give our guests the education and ministry they need.

Each short-term work trip to Haus Edelweiss is 13 days, including travel time.  Short-term workers work 12 hours each day but with adequate breaks to rest.  There are also many stairs to climb in the course of a day's work, so the volunteers must have good physical strength and stamina.  

 

IMPACT Kenya (June 20th - June 31st)

This trip will be serving in the Mathare Slums in Nairobi Kenya. Specifically the Grogan community. Missions of Hope International started in 2000; Mary began a school for the most desperate children in the village known as Mathare 1, Mlango Kubwa ("large door" in English). Community Baptist Church (CBC) committed to supporting the start-up costs. They rented a tiny, two-room "house" in the community. Mathare community leaders helped them identify and enroll 50 four- and five-year-old children in the school. In addition to educating the children, Mary made home visits to each and every family, telling them about the love of Jesus Christ and offering advice for health improvements within their homes. From this initial effort, a Community Based Organization was registered with the Kenyan Government as "Mathare Family Hope Center."

Today, Missions of Hope International provides a quality Christian education, medical care, nutritious meals, love, and encouragement to more than 13,000 children in 16 different centers throughout Mathare Valley and other parts of Kenya. CHE is active and growing in many different communities.  Families and entire communities are being transformed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This short term team will be working specifically with the students at the Grogan school and in the community center. Helping to teach preventative health care alongside bible storying.
