A love of Christ, and a willingness and heart to share your "life's story" with others who don't know Jesus. A willingness to pour out yourself for a week to all the Germans you meet with intense love and choosing first to step out of your comfort zone and engage with Germans before spending time with other American missionaries. Previous mission trip experience is encouraged as you may be on your own/the only American in your small group/team & you will help lead or lead a small group w/ your German Leader. Experience in leading small group discussions is desired but not required. Basic knowledge of baseball/softball is a plus but not required.

The prayer of Jesus was that we would pray for heaven to come down to earth and God’s will be done. So, we desire to bring the hope, love and joy of Jesus to every corner of the planet through Mission India, as with all our DRCC outreach efforts. We do this by working collaboratively with local leaders, building mutual trust and accountability and getting our hands dirty alongside our local partners.
Tugela Ferry, The Rock of Life Church, Khayelisha Care Center, Lobethal Independent School
Damascus Road Community Church began its partnership with the Tugela Ferry Mission of South Africa offering much needed prayer, friendship and resources under a spirit of servanthood and respect. The Mission includes the Rock of Life Church, the Khayelisha Care Centre, and the Lobethal Independent School.
It’s a small mission in terms of staff members and resources, but its influence is wide-spread throughout the region supporting the construction of school facilities and additional classrooms for the Lobethan Independent School, providing school supplies, teaching materials, professional training, tools and a feeding program for 20 children to receive daily food during school and more.

Vieques, Puerto Rico
Vieques, Puerto Rico, is still recovering from the devastation of hurricane Maria. When we are permitted to enter the country once again, we will join forces with our brothers and sisters at Fe Que Transforma (Faith That Transforms) to share hope and healing with the community of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Due in part to the effects of Hurricane Maria and the recent earthquakes, the people of this island have experienced food shortages, lack of adequate medical care and fear of other natural disasters. Our focus on this trip is to share the Gospel through uniquely tailored child and adult initiatives. In particular, we will host a Resilience Camp that teaches children survival skills during a natural disaster while also introducing them to Jesus. Classes will also be offered to help parents learn how to guide their children in challenging circumstances.
There is a significant elderly and invalid population on the island. As a result, we are going to conduct caregiver training and a respite program. In addition, we are building a playset for the children and expanding the food pantry storage.
We are looking for individuals who want to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ. Together we will worship, dig into scripture, pray and serve. We are not looking for people with all the answers but for those who know their need and are willing to keep their hands, minds and hearts open to God's direction.
