“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations... teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you;
and I am with you always, even to the ends of the earth.” Matthew 28:19-20
At Chapel Hill, our short-term mission teams are called Go Teams because we believe God calls us to GO. This calling can be in your neighborhood, your region, or across the world! We consider Go Team members ambassadors of God's love. The hope is you will experience growth in your relationship with Jesus as you seek to embody His love in word and deed with those you serve.
We value the ministry of presence as a significant component of our teams – as important as anything we are “doing” or “accomplishing” on a trip. The expectation is of mutual transformation, recognizing we have as much to learn and receive as we have to offer. Go Teams are sent with confidence that their character, attitude, and work ethic will shine as lights wherever they go. Our teams are prayed for diligently by Missions staff and Chapel Hill family as we anticipate His work in the lives of all involved. Please peruse the Go Teams being launched in the coming year and consider joining us! Contact Nikki Davidson at 253.312.1885 with any interest or questions.

Men's Mexico - May 2018
Dates: May 17-21, 2018
Ministry Partner: Agua Viva
Location: Ensenada, Mexico
Team Leaders: Larry Hackman
Cost: $850 (estimate)
For a decade now, we've taken teams of men down to Mexico to build houses for those in need and to serve the people of Mexico. More than ever, we are investing in our relationships with our Mexican brothers and sisters. In addition to our build projects, we will also do other service projects that could include hosting a mini men's retreat, visiting a rehab center or just attending a church service. It's not all work though. We'll have plenty of chances to enjoy the local cuisine and sights. We'll work with Agua Viva to not only build houses, but relationships. These trips are sometimes challenging, always fun, and often life-changing, which is why many guys return year after year.
This year we are also changing how participants apply for the trip and the completion of forms and documents. This will all be done online through "Focus Missions". Click below if interested in applying for the trip.
