Over the past 9 years, nearly 1,000 Watermark members - from third-graders to young adults to grandparents - have served on mission overseas as part of our short-term discipleship trips to Uganda, Burundi, Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Brazil, and other countries around the world.
We've seen God use us in a variety of ways: through pastor-training trips, medical trips, evangelism-focused trips, justice-training trips, and community development trips; by building homes, running kids' camps, visiting house-to-house, connecting people to local churches, or helping a community develop over the course of many trips. We've played soccer, enjoyed "coffee ceremonies," painted houses, worked with translators, crammed into vans, slept in hammocks (on a boat, no less), and shared the gospel of Christ in all sorts of ways.
But equally important to the work being done on the ground is the deepening relationship with Christ for Watermark participants. Our goal is dual impact - on those we serve and those going to serve. This happens through discipleship by trusted team leaders that starts months before each trip and ends months after.
Whether you're one of those who go or simply one who helps send, we encourage you to connect with our trips!
