Upcoming Missions Teams

There’s nothing like being there. A missions trip will not only give you a chance to see what your support of Children’s Cup is accomplishing, but it will change your life forever. Guaranteed. Our founder Dave Ohlerking used to tell people, “Once you go to Africa, you’ll go back in your mind every day.” He said that because it’s true. It gets in you. There’s something special about holding an orphan, and knowing that you’re actually doing the things that are needed to not just keep him alive, but to give him hope of a bright future.

We strongly encourage you to consider going to Africa with us. If you’re a sponsor of a child in one of the countries where your team is going, we’ll do all we can during your missions trip to make sure you get to meet your sponsored child while you’re there. And trust us… that’s a powerful experience you’ll never want to forget.

Are you ready yet? To be a part of any of the following list of teams,

We can customize the trip to take advantage of the team’s expertise. This team will also spend time with the Skill Trainers at the CarePoints and host a Trainer Appreciation and Train-The-Trainer session.

While you are there, you will get to spend time with your sponsored kid and meet some of our missionaries!
