Student Mission Trip – Peru July 11-22, 2017 (More coming for 2018 TBA) For more information on our Summer Peru Mission Trip, contact Travis Pegram below. We are partnering with our friends at Runa Simi just outside of Lima, Peru. The majority of the team’s work will be in Ayacucho, Peru, an hour’s flight over the Andes mountains, where the team will be working with the Quechuan people. We are bringing a team of 16 to run a youth conference, work at building a local church, as well as take care of orphans at a local orphanage. GCC students are proud to partner with our children’s ministry in raising money at VBS to provide supplies for the orphanage, such as food, hygiene supplies, cleaning supplies, and basic necessities. At the youth conference, we will be diving into the Imago Dei (Latin for the Image of God), and why it matters for a Christian. The team will also be involved in men’s and women’s small groups discussing this issue more intimately. We currently have a full team, but if you would like to hear updates about the trip, please contact Travis Pegram below!
Mission Trip – Honduras November 4-11, 2017 We are partnering with Forgotten Children Ministries just outside of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Their ministry is to “rescue the forgotten and abandoned street children of Honduras, which involves encountering these children on the streets of the cities and providing them with food, shelter, clothing and medical attention.” We are going to love on these children, share the hope of Christ with them, and encourage the staff of the ministry. One focus will be specifically to provide a community outreach in which we provide a Christmas gift for local communities by visiting people in their homes and personally ministering to them. We will also provide assistance for local ministry to those who live in and work at the City dump. There is a Grace home for the girls and a Grace Farm for the boys. The orphans are taken in from the streets of Honduras and it will be our honor to share Christmas with them. However, perhaps the biggest reason we need to go is to encourage those who work in the ministry throughout the year. Cost: $1800.

Mission Trip – South Africa October 6-16, 2017 We are partnering with Living Hope Community Center just outside of Cape Town, South Africa. Their ministry is to “seek to reach people for Christ, bringing hope and breaking the despair of poverty and disease.” Living Hope seeks to help the poor and needy through a ministry to the homeless, a ministry to those infected with HIV/aids, a ministry to those in impoverished communities through home based care assistance, outreach to disciple children and teens, and finally an economic empowerment program. Opportunities to serve range from home health care assistance, ministry in the health center, working with the homeless, and assisting with the daily “life skills education” to help equip the children and teens of these poor communities. However, perhaps the biggest reason we need to go is to encourage those who work in the ministry throughout the year. Cost: approximately $2850.
