We partner with local ministries in global regions that are working to bring hope, reconciliation, and justice through the love of Jesus Christ. Learn who are our global partners are, and about the opportunities for CPCers to travel to and participate in the work our partners our doing around the world.

 

GO!Trips

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, we learn more about ourselves and the character of Christ. We practice thinking, praying, listening, and speaking like Jesus, opening our hearts to how God may lead us to engage with our families, workplaces, church, and community. Learn about our scholarship program.

We are evaluating our upcoming GO!Trips according to the recommendations of the CDC.
