Senior Missions Trip

The senior missions trip has been a strategic event in the lives of our senior class for the past 20+ years. It builds community, bonds students to one another, creates life-long memories, provides insight to God’s work globally, expands our students’ concerns about the world…and so much more. It has been an amazing, life-changing event for years and we are committed to providing the best and safest trip we can this fall.

While our culture and the world struggle with COVID, we are working with a trusted missions partner, Thirst Missions, to send our students and chaperones to a ministry opportunity in Puerto Rico.

Thirst Missions has worked in Puerto Rico for years and works with many local churches and ministry partners in the name of Jesus Christ. They plan and host many missions trips each year and have a wonderful track record of great work. They are very well organized and have deep connections within the community.  We are excited to send our seniors and staff to Puerto Rico this fall.

Details, documents and specific trip information will be uploaded to our private trip portal, Managed Missions.  Students and parents, please login into that site for detailed information.

Since 2003, the senior classes have gone to the Dominican Republic, hosted by Youth With a Mission (YWAM). While in the D.R., the students are involved in work projects, evangelism opportunities, orphanage care, and also have a chance to learn about the history and culture of the Dominican Republic. In the last few years, Southwest Christian students have been particularly involved in ministry at Casa De Luz (House of Light), an orphanage for handicapped children. The seniors embark on the mission trip to the Dominican Republic each year, just prior to Thanksgiving break.
