OUR MISSION TRIPS
Get your feet wet in cross-cultural ministry with our 3-4 day trip to Ensenada, Mexico. As part of this trip you will:

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. But giving handouts just creates a culture of dependence that only perpetuates the cycle of poverty. Learn how to give a hand up and not just a handout. As part of this trip, you will have the option to:
- Help impart a skill to a Haitian worker
- Teach English to Haitian children
- Participate in medical clinics
FEEDING 800 CHILDREN EVERY WEEK
At The Gathering, we love to fellowship over a good meal. But we recognize that not everyone has that opportunity. In Haiti, many children go without food for up to three days. Even those who have the opportunity to go to school often lack the energy to learn due to chronic malnourishment.
So we have partnered with HopeStart International to provide 800 hungry children a nutritious meal. Every time we eat together as a church family these kids get a chance to eat. The meals we provide enable children to stay awake and alert in class, and thus able to acquire the basic education essentials for breaking the cycles of poverty, hunger, and despair that has plagued Haitian families for generations. Our goal is to provide 42,000 meals in 2018.
