Mission Jamaica: A vacation with a purpose
“Jesus said to them again, Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, So I send you.” John 20:21
A Mission Jamaica trip combines a service project with time for reflection and spiritual rest. It allows a person to experience an international mission field that is close to home, yet far enough away to immerse into another culture for a week. Mission Jamaica provides a way for us to love and serve our neighbor as Jesus taught us through his love and service to others. Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:30-31
Due to COVID-19, 2021 Adult Trips Are On Hold.
- Jamaican protocols have limited our ability to do our trips. Currently, there is a two week quarantine that restricts visitors to their hotel and limits movement around the island.
- All Children’s Homes are not permitting visitors at this time.
- The health and well being of our missionaries and the people of Jamaica is our current priority.
We are planning on having a 2022 season depending on how COVID 19, vaccines distribution, Jamaica protocol, and local recommendations.
There are a variety of sites in both Kingston and Montego Bay areas. Click the colored buttons below to learn more about the Mission Jamaica sites.
Large and small group devotions and worship will occur at the beginning and end of each day. They will include opportunities for discussing and reflecting on our experiences in Jamaica. They will also include the faith celebrations and challenges that we discover living as an intentional Christian community there.
