Journey Teams

LBC Journey Teams travel to the furthest corners of the world to live out the Gospel message by bringing hope to the hopeless. Whether working at an orphanage in Haiti, helping to build a church in Jamaica, teaching English in Germany, or doing sports camps in the Philippines, or street evangelism in Thailand, the service of these teams leave a lasting impact on the places they visit and the people they meet. Not to mention on the lives of the individual team members. Trips are planned throughout the years and are open to all LBC student to participate.

The Journey Teams need two things to be successfully – those who GO and those who GIVE.


Is the Lord leading you to GO?

Prayerfully and carefully consider if God is asking you to consider joining a Journey Team this year. We’re asking God to put together the teams that HE wants to serve Him around the world. Explore the list of trips below to discover if there is a trip that is of interest to you.

Help Support a Journey Team by GIVING

Even if you do not physically go on a trip, you can still be part of a trip by giving to support a team member. Each individual on a team needs to raise the designated amount for their trip. For some students that is difficult to do. By coming along side them with your gift you are partnering with their team.
