2018 Missions Trip
Do you want to make a difference and change some lives?
This is what we are called to do.
We have the opportunity that you are looking for! The Point Church Missions team is about making a difference and we are looking for you. We are currently planning for our 2018 Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic and are in need of some team members. The deadline to join the missions team is September 29, 2017. If you don't want to travel, you can become an important part of the team while staying right here, in your hometown by helping with fundraising, spreading the word and praying for the team.
We will be going with Servant's Heart Ministries which is a charitable organization dedicated to transforming generations by transforming individuals and communities.
They are a Canadian charity registered with Canada Revenue Agency and are based in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. The base for their work in the field is in Sosua, Dominican Republic. For more information about Servant's Heart Ministries, please visit their website.
