CUBA MISSION TRIP

The Cuba mission trip is a leadership, service and cultural experience. During the trip, we will work with Cuban children to share our love, wash their feet, and provide them with a new pair of shoes. We will provide local communities with computer equipment, books, materials, and supplies. We will increase our cultural knowledge by spending time learning about Cuban culture, architecture, daily life and Cuban food.

The mission trip is full. To join the waiting list, send an email by clicking on the button below.
