Our mission at The Summit Church is "Following the Holy Spirit, we exist to create a movement of disciple-making disciples in RDU and around the world." Because Jesus came for us, we go for the sake of others! In Trento, Italy, we want to help our partners by (1) expanding the reach of their ministry by providing an increased presence in their ministry efforts, (2) encouraging their local church partners, and (3) raising up new prayer advocates will who intercede on behalf of the lostness in the city. We will also prioritize care for our field partner by being present through prayer, conversation, encouragement, and fellowship. In Trento, we will engage with college students through evangelism, interacting with local youth and their parents, participating in and helping facilitate Bible studies and English classes, as well as serving in a variety of other ways (ex: cleaning) to care for our partners all to God's glory! **This trip will require large amounts of walking every day (20,000+ steps/day), including hills and stairs.**

The Japanese people are the second largest unreached people group in the world and often resistant to the Gospel. As our missionaries open a church mobilization center in Tokyo, our team is invited to help train Japanese pastors in evangelism, kids/students ministry, small groups, and everything in between! Our primary focus is to care for our missionaries and spur them as they labor daily in the harvest via long-term relationships. Some days this will look like prayer walking with our Ms, evangelism, discipleship, visiting churches, helping in outreach, etc. You will be equipped with everything you need for a week of ministry, just make sure you bring a heart ready to serve and care!

Germany - Nov (5081)

West Cary Campus 11/15/2024 to 11/23/2024 $2,400.00

Estimated trip cost: $2,400.00
Applications and $300.00 deposit due July 18, 2024.

Our team will be visiting one of our Summit missionaries involved with starting a church planting network with local German pastors. We will learn the history of Christianity in the area, go on prayer walks, visit key historical sites, and learn about urban ministry from German church planters and leaders. The trips we are offering, are much different than a classic missions trip that involves going on the street and evangelizing. It would be very hard in our context and culture to do that because of the language barrier and it would actually probably do more damage than good being on the streets trying to talk with people in a language they do not speak. Therefore, there is always a question about how to use a team most effectively. We have come up with a hybrid trip where it will join a Church Plant for a weekend to encourage them and partner with them in prayer and fellowship, but also using the time as a discipleship/leadership trip for our church by looking at the Reformation, WW2, and Cold War sites to talk about leadership and conviction as a Christian in the midst of adversity. It is a tool to inform and teach about the church in Germany and calling people to missions locally and globally. This trip would not be for the individual who wants to be on the street daily passing out tracts, but it could be for anyone, even whole families, or father/sons or husband/wife who want to partner with a Church Plant and to challenge their faith.

We are going to a mega city that serves as the cultural, financial, and economic center of the country. We will be spending time in the city and working with one of our Summit families who are currently living and serving there. We will get to know them, pray with them, and encourage them as they serve amongst some of the most unreached people groups in the world. We will have opportunities to engage with different ministries and care for those that are far from God but close to our missionaries geographically.
