Mission Trip : Ethos India

Posted by Dave Clayton on

This summer, we have an exciting opportunity to visit and serve our two churches in India. In April of 2011, we planted two new Ethos Churches in India (Basirhat and Gabadora) as well as a school. You can read more about Ethos India here.  Jason Parker, one of our leaders at Ethos Church, will be heading up this trip. If you have any questions, you can email Jason ( ).

ONE : APPLY ONLINE
ONLINE APPLICATION.   Applications are due by Monday, November 7th!!!  (Our hope is to have the team formed & know who's going by Thanksgiving).

TWO : INTERVIEW
 ***Our application/interview process is necessary so that we can balance out our team demographics - gender, age, spiritual gifts, personality, etc. - as we build the team that we feel is best suited to serve the people of Basirhat.***

Once all interviews have been completed  the team will be formed and solidified by November 18th, and a non-refundable deposit of $150 will be due before Christmas break (this will secure one's spot for this trip)

THREE : DETAILS AND SUMMARY OF TRIP
a) When is this trip?  May 29 - June 14
b) Where are we going?  Basirhat, West Bengal, India as well as Gabadora (Basirhat is in North East India and is about 3 hrs from Kolkata)
c) How much will it cost?  Close to $3,000 (If you've never been on a mission trip before, don't worry!  We will all be fundraising)
d) How many spots are there on the team?  6 spots (unfortunately with the nature of this trip we have to have limited spots - so please apply ASAP!)
e) What will we be doing?  This is the incredible part: We will visit the 2 Ethos church plants (in Basirhat & Gabadora), as well as the school started by Ethos in Basirhat. We will partner with the churches in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those that have never heard this message (also to those of Muslim & Hindu religions), be a blessing to the churches and encourage the believers & their families, aid the churches in serving their local communities, visit the sick in the local clinics, teach & train the church leaders/staff, host a VBS, as well as other activities to serve these 2 communities & spread the loving message of Jesus Christ!  How awesome is that?!
f) Is there anything else I can do?  Yes!  Please help by spreading the word about this trip and getting people to apply!
