MISSION TRIP – During our Spring Break a group of staff and students go on a Mission Trip to a variety of locations (Mexico, Peru, Navajo Mission), where they build churches, hold evangelistic meetings and Vacation Bible School for the children.  Mission trips meet the 100 hour outreach requirement necessary for graduation.
