Global Missions

In 2019, we are sending nine potential teams out on short-term mission tripsThe trips for this year will be the following:

1) Arizona (6/30-7/6) – Manual Labor, VBS
2) Cambodia (TBD) – Education
3) Guatemala (6/14-6/24) – Education
4) Indonesia (7/27-8/10) – Orphanage Ministry
5) Japan (TBD) – TBD
6) Tanzania (TBD) – STEM/Business
7) Vietnam (7/15-7/25) – Youth Retreat/College Retreat

We want to be a church that both goes and sends well. Therefore, we invite you to be in prayer about whether or not God is calling you to go on a trip this coming summer. We also want to invite you to continue praying for our missionaries who are laboring on the field and also for our future teams that we will be sending out to join them.

Esther Shin
global missions director

Esther was born and raised in LA but wanted to experience the full four seasons and moved to the city with one of the coldest winters in the US – Chicago. She graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in Social Policy. Upon graduating, she was given an invitation to staff with InterVarsity campus ministries but felt that the Lord was calling her to be abroad. She therefore decided instead to move to Korea and lived there for 3 years teaching English. Upon returning back home, she worked for a healthcare non-profit organization for 2 years. After years of exploring her calling, Esther finally felt the Lord clearly leading her towards receiving further theological training for future missions/faith-based justice work. She is currently studying for a Master of Arts in Theology. Esther’s passion is to take part in God’s restorative and redemptive work in the cities and to the nations.
