GLOBAL MISSIONS

Our vision at City Awakening is both local and global. We believe God has given us the responsibility and the privilege to share the Gospel with all people. While we strive to live intentionally in the city of Orlando, each year we will also send mission teams to various countries around the globe. These teams will have the opportunity to care for the needs of people, work with local churches and missionaries, and share the good news of Jesus. You can find out more below about this year’s mission trips and how you can join or support the teams. If you have questions or want more information on getting plugged in, fill out the form below.


Peru

Time: Early or Mid June for 7-10 days
Cost: $1500-1700 (may fluctuate with airfare)

Description: We are jumping into an existing 5 year partnership of trying to plant a church in the mountain villages of Viraco and Machaguay in southern Peru (about 6 hours drive from Arequipa). The trip is relationship building and evangelism. We want to pray for and share the gospel with non believers in the villages as well as encourage the few existing evangelical Christians living in the villages. There is an American missionary that spends half of the year in the villages and in Arequipa (largest city in southern Peru). We also have relationships with a couple of evangelical churches in Arequipa that we are trying to convince to take up a church planting movement in these villages.

Profile of Participant:

  • Wanting to reach people and reach the world
  • Willing and able to work with children
  • Able to be flexible with difficult travel and ministry that could be different than initially described
  • Willing to work in a small group, contribute in prayer and leading a small bible devotion

Cameroon

Time: June 23rd-July 7th (2 weeks)
Cost: $1775, not including airfare. Total cost estimated between $3000-3500

Description: Our trip will be partnering with the Cameroonian ministry. We will be primarily working to show the Jesus Film to villages surrounding the capitol city Yaounde. Our desire is to share the gospel through the film and connect people who desire to respond with local pastors and missionaries. Expect some decently long days learning how to use equipment and evangelism tools alongside our Cameroonian partners, and then going with them out to villages inviting people to the see the Film, and having time for follow up after. We will also have the exciting opportunity to premiere the film in a new language in a more remote village. Overall we expect the trip to be exciting in its strategic ministry opportunities, but challenging as we cross cultures to reach people for Christ.

Dominican Republic

Time: Early August for 7-10 days
Cost: Around $2000 (may fluctuate with airfare)

Description: We will have the privilege of partnering with Brandon and Kinsey Sucher, a young couple that we’ve recently had the privilege to partner in sending to the DR to work as full-time missionaries. While there, a lot of our time will be spent being the hands and feet of Jesus by providing help with physical needs of the locals. We will be spending time at an orphanage for children with disabilities as well as time in a lower-economic village that was heavily affected by Hurricane Matthew. While serving, we will have the opportunity to share the Gospel. We hope to lay the foundations for continual partnership with the Suchers for years to come.
