Kenya Mission Project: August 27-September 5, 2018

In 2016, Hermitage Hills began a relationship with the 13 churches of Teso Baptist Association in Busia, Kenya. Busia is an area that is open to the Gospel, and our aim is to partner with these churches to help them achieve their vision of planting new churches and training existing congregations and leaders. 

In our 2017 team, we were able to celebrate the following:

  • Eighty-eight adults received Christ as their Savior.
  • Planted the Gospel in the hearts of 72 children at VBS.
  • Assisted 5 church plants through community evangelism and preaching.

Who can go?

  • This mission trip is for all students and adults.
  • Participants must be in good standing with Hermtiage Hills. We welcome friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join us.
  • Minors must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. In case of illness or emergency, this adult would take responsibility for them.
  • All participants are required to ask for prayer and financial support from friends, family, etc.
  • The estimated price for this trip is $2,000. Costs cover flights, lodging, most meals, and insurance. The price includes a $500 scholarship for Hermitage Hills members only. A $200 deposit is due by March 1, 2018 (or $400 per family). 

What will we do?

The team will focus on sharing the Gospel, Vacation Bible School, soccer ministry and training lay church leaders. We can use a variety of skills, including teaching, recreation, and music. All participants will be expected to share the gospel one-on-one. Training will be provided.

Did you know? 

  • Through prayer partners and support, most participants raise funds to cover a large part of their expenses. This also gives others the chance to participate even if they can’t travel with us! 
  • Many of our team members make return trips to renew friendships and to see how God is moving in the lives of the families in Kenya. Our mission trips build on the idea of long-term LIFE change in Jesus Christ.
