Friends are welcome. The deadline to sign up is February 1st.

Saltshaker

Two trips are scheduled this summer: (1) Bangladesh and (2) Sinaloa, Mexico. Saltshaker is the name of our international missions experience through the missions sending organization that we support, Evangelical Friends Mission (EFM). Saltshaker is a longer mission trip than Spring Invasion and is much more intense. The Saltshaker team will learn from local church leaders and EFM missionaries about missions, church planting, and the day-to-day life of a Christian in another culture. Registration is open; spaces are limited! The deadline to sign up is February 15. 

  • Bangladesh: June 18 – July 8, 2020. The trip leader is Bobby Kirkpatrick. 
  • Sinaloa: July 6 – 22, 2020. The trip leader is Chelle Leininger.
