What is a Beyond Borders Road Trip? It’s a chance to step beyond the borders of your life and discover a world beyond your own. It’s a chance to encounter God through the eyes of another culture. It’s a chance to get a taste of NieuCommunities and experience what it’s like to live on mission.
We call these 1-2 week cross-cultural experiences “road trips” instead of “short-term missions trips” because…
On a missions trip you go to help people.
On a road trip you come to be with people.
On a missions trip you go to speak.
On a road trip you come to listen.
On a missions trip you go to see the world.
On a road trip you come to better understand the world.
On a missions trip you go to accomplish something.
On a road trip you come to be transformed.
Because we set out to give you a holistic missional experience, we will take pieces of what we naturally experience throughout the year and bring as many of those pieces together as we can to provide a compact, integrated experience.
Three currents will run through the road trip, because they run through everything we do. Those are the currents of Communion, Community, and Context. So there will be times of spiritual reflection, worship, or prayer each day. We’ll do some exploring together and we’ll engage the culture through acts of service, kindness, conversation, and prayer. We’ll also throw some adventure into each trip and take you out to see and experience more of the country. Depending on the site, that may be a kayak trip up an ocean inlet, a trip to Baja, or a game drive and camping amongst wild animals.
At this point you may be wondering if this is really a fit for you, or you may have specific questions about a road trip – whichever it is feel free to contact Rebecca. If you know this is for you and want to apply, download our application form here.
