High School Mission Trip

We are blessed at Temple Baptist Church to have solid partnerships with church plants all over North America.  We use these partnerships to take students who have completed 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades to amazing places like Los Angeles, Calgary, Chicago, Puerto Rico, Boston and more!  High School students get to be a part of spreading the gospel in these different contexts and through a variety of methods to help church plants reach the communities around them.  Because of our ongoing partnerships with these church plants, our students get to see how their efforts help these growing churches long term as they continue to hear stories throughout the years from the places they serve and people they've partnered with.  Many of our students go on to serve with the North American Mission Board in these SEND cities for whole summers as college students.  High School students truly get to see what lifestyle missions is really all about.

High School Mission Trip 2024 is to Los Angeles!

Where will we stay?  We'll be staying on the campus of Hope University in Anaheim, California.
What are we going to do?  Our large group of students will be placed in teams of 10-12 people as they work with church planters.  Those teams will do LOTS of things including a sports camp, community engagement projects, night of worship, SEND Relief projects, door hangers, and much more!
