Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age” (The Message)
Acts 1:8 “And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria, even to the ends of the world.” (The Message)Global Missions 2017 Magazine
Global Missions Team Packet
Dogwood helps the local church in Kenya by helping equip them in their fight against HIV/AIDS by partnering with CARE for AIDS. During the mission trip to Kenya you will assist in the local church activities and projects. You will also do hands-on counseling.
Team Leader: Porfirio Mejia
Dogwood teams going to Thailand works alongside our ministry partners, primarily ministering to the Karen peoples in western and southwestern Thailand. Most of these were Karen families who have been forced from their villages in neighboring Myanmar (or Burma) during the 64+year civil war.
Teams have the opportunity to visit large (over 20,000) refugee camps and focus on the orphans in these camps. We provide medical clinics, Christian leadership training, along with various construction projects and Vacation Bible School activities.
Team Leader: Eric Hoffler
This mission opportunity is done in partnership with Dogwood’s student ministry. Serving opportunities will include light construction, serving the children at the Save R Kids Children’s Home, and an outreach project to the local community. No experience is necessary for this mission trip.
Team Leader: Lisa Warren
Trips to the Unreached People Group region will focus on continuing to build relationships with local Christian leaders. Teams will work with these leaders to determine the needs of the local church as well as the communities. Dogwood will then develop strategies to alleviate these needs and equip local leaders to build strong Christian communities.
