GO! Trips are CPC's short-term service and vision trips to see, love, and serve God's people. When we retreat from our everyday lives to travel and serve God's people, we learn more about ourselves, our partners, and the character of Christ. We practice thinking, praying, listening, and speaking like Jesus, thereby opening our hearts to hear how God may lead us upon return to engage with our families, workplaces, church, and community. At CPC, we believe that serving in relationship with our partners brings us closer to Christ and to people experiencing poverty, injustice, and oppression.

Before registering, please assemble all relevant information, including: passport, credit card, frequent flyer, health insurance, and emergency contact. Thank you.

The trip will culminate in an on-the-ground experience in Eastern DR Congo with CPC partner, Congo Initiative. Register by September 30. Cost: $1,000 (plus airfare of $2,200).
