What is PilgriMission Exchange?

PilgriMission Exchange trips are intensive pilgrimage and mission experiences designed to provide the greatest benefit to both those hosting the mission teams and to the participants going on the trip. The goal of these trips will be to transform the way we view short-term mission service. More focus will be placed on what is learned and the relationships that are built than on the tasks accomplished. Limited to 8 people, these experiences will include 2-3 months of pre-trip preparation, approximately 1-2 weeks of missionary service, and 2-3 months of post-trip debriefing and future planning.

During the pre-trip stage, participants will build relationships with one-another and explore topics of mission and faith.

During the trip the group will learn from the full-time Field Personnel and local practitioners as well as take part in meaningful mission service.

After the trip, participants will explore what their findings and new relationships mean for their future vocational callings.
