One of the ways CCV helps people become fully devoted followers of Jesus is through short-term international mission trips. There are many reasons for you to consider short-term missions – the opportunity to serve people around the world, to share the message of hope that God loves them, as well as to grow in your own relationship with Jesus.
Here are the various international partnerships that we have around the globe:
Guatemala: Casas Por Cristo
CCV’s work with Casas Por Cristo represents the longest-running international partnership, dating back to 2007. In May of 2007, CCV sent its first ever short-term missions team to build a home for a family in the city of Juarez, Mexico. Since then, we’ve continued to send teams to work with Casas in both Mexico and Guatemala.
This year’s team is working in Guatemala July 23-28, 2017.

Haiti: Lifeline Christian Mission
Lifeline Christian Mission has served the people in the town of Grand Goave, Haiti (30 miles west of Port Au Prince) since 1980. CCV’s first trip to work with Lifeline took place in May of 2010, a few short months after the massive earthquake that devastated what was already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Lifeline ministers to the town of Grand Goave through education, nutrition programs, and several churches they’ve helped to start throughout the surrounding area.
This year’s team is traveling to Haiti July 31-August 9, 2017.

Cambodia: Rapha House International
CCV’s newest international partnership takes us to Cambodia to work with victims of human trafficking in partnership with Rapha House. The ministry of Rapha House seeks to rescue and heal young girls and provide them with counseling services, safe houses. and vocational training.

Kenya: Christian Missionary Fellowship
CCV’s partnership with CMF (Christian Missionary Fellowship) dates back to 2009. Our primary way of supporting CMF’s efforts in Nairobi’s Mathare Valley, one of the oldest and largest slums in the world, is through the Hope Partnership Child Sponsorship program. To date, over 300 CCVers sponsor a child in Kenya through the Hope Partnership.

Northeast India: Team Expansion
CCV’s partnership with Team Expansion is designed to help spur a church planting movement in Northeast India, one of the most “unreached” areas on the face of the earth. After a successful scouting trip in January 2012, CCV is continuing, through its NextGen Campaign, to equip our local missionary, Avia, and reach the entire 1,000,000 unreached people in the area known locally as “Dawnlight.”
