Serve With Us
“It is something that can only be felt and not explained. So, I would say this to anyone considering taking a mission trip through 410 Bridge – just GO! Only then will you feel what my words can not adequately express.” —Leila, trip participant & team leader
It’s all about relationships!
Because of our unique community development model, communities are empowered and projects become sustainable, they are not fully dependent on Western short term missions teams to complete or maintain. This allows each team time and energy to pursue relationships as they work alongside community members on projects and through visits in their homes and churches.
Each trip provides an unique opportunity to engage and interact with members of a 410 Bridge community. Teams start to see ‘our neighbors’ have the same hopes and dreams that we do. We see teams encounter life changing experiences, and inspired to continue using their gifts to serve the Kingdom.
Current Open Trips
If you have an interest in serving with us, but are not currently connected to a 410 Bridge church partner team, we offer opportunities to serve on an Open Trip.
An Open Trip involves a U.S. team built of members from various locations, or people who may already know each other. We offer these trips to be inclusive of those interested in serving and learning more about The 410 Bridge approach to healthy global missions.
Check back frequently for updated opportunities!
