Missions Trips

Christian Life Assembly
Camp Hill, PA

"Now, more than ever before, I believe it is so important for everyone – everyone! – to go on a missions trip. Individuals who “go” come back changed every time. We’ve heard so many stories from people who saw God move, and they grew in their faith as a result. We are looking forward to these upcoming opportunities with much anticipation and excitement. We have opportunities to “go” – whether locally, domestically or globally. Will you join us in sharing the Good News of Jesus, and be His hands and feet in a world that needs Him?" 
~ Pastor Kristian Walker, Worship Arts & Missions Pastor

We will be returning to Jolo, WV! This team will help build a warehouse next to the Hope For McDowell community center. The community center provides food, clothing and supplies to local residents, as well as educational resources for McDowell County, one of the poorest counties in the U.S.
With the new warehouse, Hope For McDowell will be able to store various donations of building materials and resources. This will allow the organization to provide essential home repairs for residents and a variety of humanitarian endeavors.

We are looking for individuals with all levels of construction and renovation skills, as well as non-skilled support. Most importantly, we are looking for individuals with willing hearts who are ready to serve!

Rajashthan, India

October 14-23, 2022

Type: Humanitarian
Cost: $3,700
Application Deadline: Registration Closed - Trip is Full
Age: Adults only (age 18 and older)
Ministry Partner: Ashagaon Village (Village of Hope), Rajnish Jacobs
Team Size: 12 People

This missions trip will be unlike any CLA has organized before in its location, scope and requirements.
This fall, we will have the unique opportunity to take a small team to Jaipur, Rajashthan to partner with the Ashagaon Village (Village of Hope), where lives are being dramatically changed. The Village of Hope’s purpose is to equip young women who have been rescued from sex trafficking with critical skills. Having a variety of practical skills empowers them to discover a new way of life, find tremendous freedom and hope in hopelessness, and be a value to their neighbors and community.
 
At the Village of Hope, the young women are already learning a variety of important skills, such as creating jewelry, growing and cultivating crops to make spices, running a dairy farm and creating custom-crafted textiles - all for the purpose of selling and generating revenue to support the continued operation of Ashagaon Village. However, the goal is to expand the skills that are being taught and increase the potential for ministering to and supporting more young ladies. And this is where our team will play an important role!

We are looking for team members with specific skills to teach to the young women. These skills were chosen because they will have the most significant impact:

  • First Aid / CPR
  • Cosmetology / Beautician
  • Basic Finance / Budgeting
  • Painting (Murals, Portraits and Maintenance)
  • Baking / Cooking
  • Basic Data Entry (Word / Excel)
  • Photography / Videography
  • Graphic Design / Video Editing
  • Social Media / Internet Marketing

  • Have traveled to another country, are comfortable in a very different culture and have cultural sensitivity.
  • Are willing to accept the risks of traveling to an anti-Christian country and are comfortable navigating being in an anti-Christian culture. Sadly, Christians in India are frequently imprisoned for proclaiming their faith.

  • A VISA application process with the government of India
  • A CURRENTLY ACTIVE passport (that must not expire before April 24, 2023)
