SUMMER
TEAM TRIPS

Go, energize the community for a new church, love on Kenyans, and see the Big Continent.

PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.

We welcome you to travel with us each summer to experience beautiful East Africa in a meaningful and beneficial way that will bless your heart for the rest of your life.

Our intention is to use your gifts to bless the local church.  We do VBS, local evangelism, and lay leader training all to generate attention in the neighborhoods and villages within about 2-3 miles around one of our most recent church plants.    

Trips are normally 10 days roundtrip, with approximately 7 working days on the ground.  Our teams are normally 13-17 people each trip. Being on the Indian Ocean coast, or near it, we stay at a hand-full of known exotic locations chosen for their modern conveniences, safety, security, and of course cuisine! 

Teams will set out during the weekdays to the chosen location to either work with the local school children at the church or walk the villages around the church sharing the meeting times of this new congregation.  All the while sharing the Gospel to all we meet and inviting them to a mid-week church dedication service where worship will be lifted up like only Africans can do in song, and of course Gospel will be preached.  

 

Some minor maintenance projects on the new church location may need to be done; but the primary purpose of the trip is to introduce the new church planters to the community. 

The summer Continuing Education Conference will be happening at the same time near the community we will be working, so you will experience the gracious and warm hospitality that Kenyans are known for as all the OBM pastors, their wives, and the School of Theology students will be assisting in the community outreach when not in training.
