Faith Based Trips
For many people, the most meaningful expression of their faith is volunteering to help others. All of the activities generally offered in a volunteer trip from building to health work, are offered in a faith inspiring context.
The most common faith based trip partners with a local church in the area to accomplish the volunteer work and inspire the community.
Often called a mission trip, these volunteer experiences are offered as a group experience through local churches and parishes. However, recently there has been signifigant rise in providers offering trips for individuals to join like minded people of different denominations to serve side by side. This has increased dialog and friendships among different denominations.
Most faith based trips do not require you to belong to a certain faith, just open and accepting of faith and its different expressions on the trip.
It is this added expression of faith that can make the trip all the more impacting.
(Of coarse, by listing faith based trips we are not endorsing any particular faith or denomination...just that the organization can deliver a quality volunteer experience.)
