The young adult one-week mission trips happen in January and March. These trips exist to allow young adults who cannot or may not want to go for six weeks the opportunity to experience mission in another culture. The one week trips give young adults a chance to see God at work in a context outside of their own.
The one week trips are available to anyone between the ages of 18 and 35. In order to participate in the one-week trips, a young adult needs the approval of their application from their Corps Officer and DYS. Once this has been done, the Territorial Young Adult and Mission Deployment Coordinator receives the participant application with the DYS endorsement. If a DYS gives his/her approval, we assume that the young adult has the approval of his/her Corps Officer and any other divisional approval that is needed.
Participants raise 1/3 of the cost of the trips. The cost of the trip varies according to which trip they choose. The January trip, costs $200 for the week plus the participant’s airfare. The March trip costs $450 for the week plus airfare. A participant would then raise a third of that cost. The other two thirds of the cost is divided evenly between a participant’s home division and territorial headquarters.
