Tag: Wonder Voyage 2019

  • Grand Tetons, Wyoming

    July 26—August 2, 2019

    We have planned another Wonder Voyage trip for the summer of 2019. 

    tetons21“The splendor of the Grand Tetons makes one abundantly aware that God is omnificent – unlimited in creative power. Join us on a missions trip or pilgrimage that includes meeting God in His “outdoor sanctuary.” Miles of trails and opportunities to view interesting wildlife, birds, plants, and flowers make this journey a feast for all of the senses. Experience how the Lord has put the “great” in the Great Outdoors, a journey toward splendor.”

    Youth enrolled in 9th through 12th grade during the 18/19 school year will be able to attend and be offered financial assistance through fundraising and scholarships if needed. Please see Crista directly for scholarship information which is awarded to youth who have not experienced a Wonder Voyage trip previously. Fundraising participation will be mandatory for all youth attending the trip and funds will be divided equally between them.

    Adults who are interested are welcome to join the group as well. You are expected to pay in full and will not benefit from fundraisers done by the youth. Although there may be times a leader may ask for your assistance in something, you are there as a participant of the voyage and not expected to have any responsibilities pertaining to planning or execution of the trip.

    During the time of registration, which will begin in June, a $100 non-refundable deposit will be taken to secure your spot. Registration will remain open through September at which point we will move forward with our final numbers and planning for flights and accommodations during our travel. Final costs have not been determined yet, but that information will be more on track in the next couple of months. I will publish the information as soon as possible.

    The area of Grand Tetons is a thriving community and the mission need is very different from other areas in the country. We won’t be in soup kitchens or homeless shelters, but we will focus more on preservation and environment in any service work that is needed. This voyage will be a spiritual journey like no other. Be prepared to find the wonder of God’s mighty hand everywhere you turn during the week and take home what the Holy Spirit gives you with each moment.

    Informational meeting will be Sunday, September 9th at 5pm in Morrison Hall. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with questions.
