Short Term Trips
Our desire is to see lives and hearts transformed by the Gospel. We will provide a variety of opportunities and avenues to serve the Lord to the ends of the earth. Trips for 2020 are listed below.
North Africa 1 (Late May) || North Africa 2 (September)
There are hundreds of unreached people groups, most of them Muslim, all across North Africa encompassing tens of millions of people with little or no access to the gospel. We have established an ongoing partnership with missionaries in order to share the good news in an unspecified country. Teams will faithfully proclaim the gospel as they meet people in the marketplace, coffee shops, restaurants, and homes. The teams will also spend time prayer walking throughout the city.
Taiwan - June
We have forged an exciting partnership with missionaries outside the capital city of Taipei in order to engage the lost and proclaim the gospel among the unreached. Over 97% of the people on the island do not proclaim Jesus as Lord and 61% of the population follow ethnic religions. The Taiwanese are drawn to the love and care they see from the body of Christ and desire that same community for themselves. This team will labor to push back the darkness for the Kingdom offering hope to the hopeless.
Netherlands - June
Highland is coming alongside missionary partners to reach the ever growing immigrant and refugee community in Amsterdam. Some of the refugees receive official approval to enter the country while others arrive by an means possible. There is an openness to hear the gospel and to receive the Bible in their language. This is a very straightforward, relationship building, gospel sharing opportunity. May Christ become Lord over the city and country.
Contact Jamie-Hipp@highlandbc.org with any questions about North Africa, Taiwan, and Netherlands.
Basketball Outreach Teams
A ministry that offers the hope of the gospel and believes that through encouraging, energetic coaching and personal interaction with a coach, lives will be changed by the good news. Each team will operate in a similar format no matter the locale and trips are 10 days in length. Basketball skills are not required but a working knowledge of the game is helpful.
