Have you ever been on a trip and had your flight canceled, lost your passport or driver’s license, luggage was damaged, couldn’t speak the language, or other mishaps? If so, then you know how much worse such inconveniences are when you are away from home, whether in the U.S. or in another country. We at Sports & Rec Plus can’t guarantee that such things won’t happen on one of our trips, but we can guarantee you that we will be there to help if it does. Here is how. It is what makes a Sports & Rec Plus mission trip different.
We take care of everything.
We arrange for your travel, housing, food, materials, currency exchange, and make sure your host has arranged for all your onsite ministry activities. We will even help you with your passport and visas. All you do is pray and pack. We even help you train your people so they will be effective and have a good experience.
Why Go On A Mission Trip With Sports & Rec Plus?
Why choose us?
Your money will go farther.
We know how hard it is to get the money together for a mission trip. You can be sure that with Sports & Rec Plus you will be getting the best rates available. You also have a choice of trips with a variety of price ranges and itineraries.
You will make new friends and learn some language as well.
As your people rub shoulders with those of a different country, they will make new friends. They will even learn some basic foreign language skills like; “Hello,” “Good-bye,” “Thank you,” and so forth. In short, they will bond with the people they serve.
It’s fun, too.
Many people think that a mission trip is not how they would want to spend their vacation time. However, we know that once you go on such a trip you will discover that the real sacrifice is not in going on the trip, but in returning home from where you served. A mission trip is a fun-filled, spiritual growth experience.
Your folks will grow in their faith.
There is nothing like a mission trip to stretch you. When you enter unfamiliar surroundings your faith will grow as you learn to rely on God for all aspects of your life and the trip.
We have the experience.
The President of Sports & Rec Plus, Rev. Rick Mitchell, was a missionary in the Philippines for 8½ years. He has been to over 23 countries on four continents spreading the Gospel. He has also worked extensively in the U.S. helping churches in outreach to their communities. Your mission trip will not be our first trip. Our sole purpose is to help and equip you to share Jesus in another place. Our desire is to partner with God to help make your mission trip experience hassle-free, ministry-packed, and life-changing.
You will spend time with nationals.
The big idea behind our mission trips is that you spread the Gospel to those who live in the country to which you are going. Your time with people from other mission groups or with missionaries will be kept to a minimum or not at all. You will however, spend day after day, with citizens of the country to which you have chosen to minister. Where needed, we will make sure translators are provided to help you communicate most effectively.
