Mission Trip Opportunities

Welcome!

We are recipients of Good News! Let’s share Good News!

At Waterbrook, we believe that we are all to be engaged in sharing the Good News in word and deed – at home, neighborhood, work, school, church and the throughout the world! This is a lifestyle of “being on mission”.

What does it mean to be on mission at Waterbrook? It could be –

  • Engaging in many of the local ministries of Waterbrook
  • Engaging in prayer, care, or sharing in your home, neighborhood, school or workplace
  • Engaging in a short term summer mission
