GCBA Mission Trips

Act 1:8 clearly states that we are to reach out to the nations both foreign and domestic.  In the sections below, you will find information about the many different mission opportunities that you can be a part of, through Grand Crossings Baptist Association.  Our trips normally will take place in the summer months, due to weather and travel coordination.  If you have a question on any trip or about a future trip that the Lord may lay upon your heart, please contact Preston Thompson, DOM.
