At Words To Works Ministries, we are committed to assisting others in being obedient to the Great Commission. We not only want you to go on a mission trip, we want you to have a positive, successful trip that will light a fire for evangelism in your team. With that goal in mind, we will develop a mission trip designed around your team's size, experience, length of stay and interests, and then we will walk you through the entire process of planning and implementation.
What Areas of Ministry are available through Mission Trips?
The needs of north Jacksonville, Florida, are great, therefore we have many different areas from which you can chose:
Summer internships are available for students, high school juniors and up. Learn every aspect of running a mission, develop life-long friends, and reach your potential!
Who can come on mission?
Everyone! We believe that the Great Commission is a command to all therefore it is one of our goals to make obedience to this command a reality for all of our brothers and sisters in Christ. While we work closely with the Southern Baptist Convention churches, we invite all who love the Lord and want to spread His love and Good News. Denominational lines become irrelevant when our focus is on mission evangelism and God’s kingdom. A family trip for everyone! All church members!!

What ages to you accomadate?
Whatever your age, interest or skills, we have a place for you! We do not believe that mission trips should be only for our middle and high school youth. We have had the pleasure of working with groups of seniors, nurses, bikers, families, college students, and intergenerational church groups. A team from Belize came and serve, learning how we do what we do so that they could implement a similar program in their own country. A group of seniors, the youngest of whom was 65, came and fed the hungry and prepared medical package for overseas. A small church came on their first ever mission trip and brought over half their congregation, from ages 6 months to 60s. We believe that God has called all of us to Go and share the Good News, and it is our heart to enable as many who want to be obedient to this command! We will accomadate families together for the young children need to be with their parents.
How long are the mission trips?
How long do you want it to be? We customize our trips for you! If you are here locally, 24-hour trip. Those traveling a distance may prefer a 3-day, Weekend trip. or 6-day trip. The 6-day trip usually has figured into it one "free" day to allow your group to enjoy the sights and beaches of our area. Again, it is up to you!
When can we come on a mission trip?
When do you want to come? We host mission groups year 'round! Spring and summer are our busiest times. The 24-hour trip is popular all year with local groups. Seniors generally prefer to come in the off season when it isn't as hot ~ smart, aren't they!?!
