High Schoolers (those completing grades 9-12 for the 2018-2019 school year) will travel on an international mission trip June 6-12, 2019. This trip was original planned for Nicaragua, where Country Club Christian Church has enjoyed a rich mission relationship with CEPAD, the Council of Protestant Churches in Nicaragua, for more 15 years. Unfortunately, recent months have left Nicaragua in political turmoil and unrest and CEPAD will not receive international groups until further notice. Our hearts are pray for the safety of civilians vulnerable to mob violence during this challenging time.

However, we have found an opportunity to partner with FEDICE, an agency in Ecuador with whom have close ties. FEDICE has worked for decades to empower indigenous and marginalized communities in the Ecuadorian Andes to break the cyclical chains of poverty, discrimination and injustice. Click here for more information about FEDICE, the work they do, and how we might be serving and learning in our time with them.

More details about the trip – including registration, information meetings, and team meetings – will be released soon. Until then, mark your calendars for our trip to Ecuador, and keep Nicaragua in your minds and in your hearts. Stay tuned for more information about the Middle School Mission Trip 2019. We will continue to support CEPAD in a variety of ways as we gear up for our trip to Ecuador, knowing that our partnership with CEPAD is only changing, not ending.
