Campus Ministry

Mission Trips

Campus Ministry takes international mission trips every March spring break and sometimes during the summer as well.  We believe that students need to see that the Body of Christ is global and God has blessed us with friends and ministry partners all over the world.  While God sends us to be a blessing to others, most often the greatest work by the Lord is done in the hearts of the trip team members themselves.

In March of 2017, we took a team of 11 to Rajahmundry, India for our fourth visit to this fascinating place.  We worked with our friends at Gateway Ministries directed by our dear brother in Christ, Pastor V.S.C. Prasad.  Prasad oversees 100 rural village churches along with a Christian School and an abandoned children's home.  We ministered in all of these places.  We also conducted a Pastor's Conference for over 80 pastors and their wives while we were in India.  Check out the link below to see pictures of the visit.

In March of 2018, we traveled to Northern Ireland for our fifth visit.  We will took a team of 21 to work with our friends at Adventure Leadership Training, directed by long-time partners and dear brother and sister in Christ, Desi and Pamela Fisher.  We ministered through school assemblies, after school programming and drop-in centers in and around the town of Annalong.  We also experienced the wonderful history and culture of this beautiful place. 

We traveled to Bulgaria in March of 2019 (March 1-9).  We spent the week serving the Roma (gypsy) people, a persecuted, impoverished minority in Eastern Europe with our partner ministry in Bulgaria, Care For All Ministries, directed by our brother and friend, Dinko Zlatarov.  We shared in their church services, did street carnivals for the children and distributed food to families (as well as prayed with them). 

This coming March (March 5-14, 2020), we return to India for our 5th visit to serve alongside of Pastor Prasad, his family and the pastors he shepherds in and around Rajahmundry.  If you are interested in traveling with this team, send Campus Minister Ben Gates an email expressing your interest--gatesb@pfw.edu.  Registration is now open and deposits are being taken to reserve a spot for this exciting adventure.
