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 excited after two years of Covid restrictions to be able to return to our Dominican Republic team.
Since 2009, 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.
However, the YWAM base in the D.R. has struggled during Covid, so we hope to send an extra blessing of prayer and financial support this year. Watch this video for inspiration!
