Every summer Global Projects sends teams of students to participate in cross-cultural community development and missions projects. While the actual trips range from 2-8 weeks each summer, Global Projects embraces a BEFORE-DURING-AFTER philosophy of short-term missions. This means that the whole summer program lasts from January-October as you meet with all the other summer teams to help you prepare before you leave and process after you come back. You should think of the summer program more in terms of a discipleship journey rather than just an opportunity for summer travel. Participating with the Global Projects Summer program will stretch and challenge you; you will be given the opportunity to never be the same again!

TRIP LEADERSHIP WITH GLOBAL PROJECTS
Our trips wouldn't run if it wasn't for students who choose to give their talents, time, and energy to leading. While the Global Projects team can plan trips, we need someone who is willing to filter our vision and values down to the team members and to give them life around the world. We provide leaders training, support, and mentorship all throughout the entire process, and consider it a privilege to work with students through what is a typically growth filled time.
