RockPointe Church provides several opportunities for families to step out of their normal rhythm of life and step into intentional family engagement through local, national and global mission trips. Family mission trips cultivate a heart of service and allow natural moments to occur for faith conversations to be had among the body.
Who is eligible to attend a family mission trip?
Whether you are single, married with children, married with no children, or an empty-nester, family mission trips are a great opportunity for you! Family Mission trips communicate that the work involved and the activities planned for the trip take into consideration the variety of ages and stages that are likely to attend.
