Impact your life and the lives of others by engaging firsthand in what God is doing around the world.
Grace Impact Trips are carefully planned so that we don’t do more harm than good. We always partner with a local leader who is already doing good work in the community. These leaders are ministering to their own people, changing the communities they live in, and working hard to bring the Kingdom to those on earth. We follow their lead, serving in whatever way they determine is best. It is never our intention to go and “fix” or to bring our own agenda. This means that some of our trips may not look like a traditional “mission trip,” but they do guarantee sustainable, healthy ministry so that our partners can be doing good work—Kingdom work—for a long time to come!
A Short-Term Mission experience will help you:
- See the world through God’s eyes.
- Experience authentic Christian community through relationships and experiences.
- Contribute meaningfully, humbly and energetically to the team.
- Integrate new learning into your faith and life back home.
- Gain a better understanding of the global church.
- Understand your next steps to
livingout God’s calling on your life.
- Meet, encourage and learn from our ministry partners who are serving in some of
mostdifficult places and circumstances in the world.

India, October, 2019 (Vision Trip)
Malaga, Spain , October 4-13, 2019 (Vision Trip)
(Dates may change by a day or two depending on the flights we choose.)
Malaga is a city on the east coast of Spain. Our partners at the Malaga Media Center minister to their Spanish neighbors but also broadcast Christian television and internet programs into North Africa. If it is considered appropriate with the team and timing, a short trip into North Africa is also possible.
While in Malaga, we will be meeting our partners at the Malaga Media Center and learning about the work they do there. We may be able to observe as they produce television programs, monitor web activity, and perform “church” online to the Christians in North Africa. We will be there to catch a vision for what God is doing around the world and to encourage our partners in the work they are doing. We would also hope that you would come home and share the things you’ve seen and learned with Grace through talking to your friends, small group, and others you meet about our partners and the work they are doing.
Cost: $2600 covers airfare, lodging, food, and daily activities. You may want to bring a little bit of money for souvenirs or food and snacks in the airport on travel days.
