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!

LIVING WITH DIFFERENCES: ISRAEL AND PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES
To many, the lands that now form the modern political state of Israel and the Palestinian territories, are known collectively as “The Holy Land.” This is a land rich in religious and historical significance for the three world’s largest monotheistic religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam; and it a land desperate for reconciliation, peace, and unity. Last year, the team partnered with Serve Nazareth, and helped in the Dialysis Unit, Psychiatric Unit, and Maternity Ward of the English Hospital, while also helping in a 1stCentury village re-creation. The team also partnered with Musalaha, an organization in Jerusalem promoting the dialogue of reconciliation and forgiveness between Israelis and Palestinians. You will gain first-hand experience in Israeli and Palestinian cultures all while learning about God and his heart for this land and the people within. You will experience the importance and challenge of forgiveness in a land rattled by political and religious tension, division, and acts of injustice. Approximate cost: $6520

You will also eat incredible Honduran dishes, and experience life with a host family. This trip is an incredible opportunity to see locals and long-term missionaries interact in a beautiful Spanish community.
This Central American country faces complex issues of violence, crime, and kidnapping. The first step in jumpstarting change is through the country’s youth, assuring their foundation is rooted in faith.

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.
