Mission trips at ECA are offered to provide our students with an experience that will take them outside of their comfort zone and expose them to poverty, other cultures, and different life circumstances. It also gives them space to learn lessons they wouldn’t otherwise learn, to challenge themselves to live life more radically for Jesus, to think more about missions, and to see how they can help the gospel move forward by meeting missionaries who are living for Jesus.
