Mission Trips

MISSION TRIP OPPORTUNITIES

 

Volunteers in Mission – Calvary is closely associated with the Susquehanna Conference's Volunteers in Mission, or VIM, which coordinates a variety of mission opportunities for volunteers to serve God.  VIM work has become a way of life for many who find deep spiritual growth through serving the Lord and meeting new friends in Christ.  These trips will usually be led by Calvary's Pastor Jeff Fisher. The length of each trip is based on the destination – some are one day, some are a weekend, some can be one or two weeks.  VIM has sponsored both domestic and global mission trips as well as more local work camp opportunities.
