A short-term mission trip is an exciting, engaging experience in which faith is put into action by partnering with brothers and sisters from different cultures and life experiences. For us, such travel represents a special kind of peacemaking experience, one that can influence a participant for life! In order to assist as many groups as possible, and to ensure consistency of awards, the following guidelines have been developed for Mission Travel Grants:

  1. For mission trips within the bounds of the USA, a range of $50-$100 per participant with a
    cap of $2,000 for any one trip.
  2. For mission trips outside the USA, a range of $100-$350 per participant with a cap of $4,000
    for any one trip.
  3. To help congregations or individuals who may not otherwise have access to these
    opportunities, additional funding MAY be offered for mission trips open to multiple
    congregations.
  4. Preference will be given to first-time applicants and applicants within presbyteries that have
    not been awarded a Mission Travel Grant during the past two years.

Columbia PC’s mission trip leaves lasting effect on ‘Dream Team’

On the surface, there aren’t a lot of similarities between the city of Los Angeles and the small community of Columbia, PA. But one thing the two have in common is homelessness, and the Rev. Dave Powers felt that by having a mission team make the trip west to see how the situation is handled on a large scale would be beneficial to his congregation. Read about the trip here.
