July 15 - 21, 2023 | Ghana
The relationally-driven trip provides an ideal opportunity for first time and experienced travelers alike to help make an impact and build relationships with the Ghanaian people. The Crossing will be partnering with City of Refuge Ministries (CORM). City of Refuge is a home for about 40 children that have been rescued from a life of slavery in an area near Lake Volta. They teach these kids new skills and trades to help them make money and also teach them the love and hope of Jesus that is being offered to them so they can experience a life with hope and prosperity rather than a life of poverty. Community Outreach with CORM will be a large portion of service focus for this trip to West Africa.
