Mission Trips

Working Where Needed

Pounding nails, washing windows, painting walls, teaching English, telling Bible stories, leading worship services, organizing paperwork—each job is valued and no task is too small for those committed to sharing the love of Jesus by their actions.

Read our missions blog to learn how Redeemer is connected with service work and missionaries around the world, including our annual trips to the Mexico/Texas border.

 

Where is Texico?

Each spring Redeemer Covenant Church sends a group to serve alongside longstanding partner churches in Reynosa, Mexico, and Los Indios, Texas—a location we affectionately call "Texico." Our goal is to serve with and learn from friends doing ministry in a context and region of North America that is different from our own, while having a shared faith growing experience with other church members.

These trips are done annually but are on a 3-year cycle. Two consecutive years are designed as a Redeemer Youth Ministries Trip (9-12th grade). On the third year of the cycle the trip is made available for all ages of Redeemer. The third year is designed to be family friendly and provide an opportunity for all ages of Redeemer to have a shared discipleship and service trip experience. A variety of projects are done on these trips, such as building projects and VBS outreaches. There's a job for everyone!

Mission Trips

   

Jamaica 2014

From February 22 – March 2 about a dozen from Redeemer went on a one-week mission trip to Jamaica to repair the building at the Berry Dale Church of God, located in the rural town in Clarendon. Our work projects included: painting, repairing a bathroom floor and fixtures, installing wiring for internet connections, repairing benches, building new tables for classrooms, and replacing damaged doors in the church. We were excited to begin a food distribution program where, for only $5 per Jamaican family, a week’s worth of meals could be provided consisting of: rice, flour, sugar and cornmeal. It was a very worthwhile trip. 

   

Texico 2011

Los Indios, Texas, was the destination of the Texico mission team this year. This Spanish-speaking community is on the US-Mexico border. The church where the team stayed helps Spanish-speaking families who are in transition. While there, the team did maintenance projects on the church, directed an evening VBS program for community children, and enjoyed times of worship and fellowship with the church body there.

   

Redeemer and Alaska Christian College

Redeemer has been a long-term partner with Alaska Christian College (ACC) in Soldatna, Alaska. In August 2011, we sent a team of twenty individuals to ACC to help with a variety of work projects ranging from office/library tasks to landscaping and construction work.

If you have any questions about the mission team/trips at Redeemer, please contact Bob Genoch.
