That's a great question.
a mission trip enhances the spiritual growth of the entire church.
a mission trip can be done from a church of almost any size. Even a small church can do a short term trip.
a mission trip gives team members a goal that motivates commitment to spiritual development.
a mission trip gives us a way to participate in obedience to the Bible (the Great Commission).
a mission trip can advance a missionary's work rather than delay it.
a mission trip can bring great excitement to your church.
a mission trip can be the entry point for God to work in a whole new way in your church.
a mission trip can develop skills and attitudes in your team members that will benefit the growth of your church.
That's why :)
