Mission Trip: Haiti

March 9-14, 2018

Arcahaie, Haiti


The goal of this trip is to give students a cross cultural ministry experience and to burden their hearts for God’s work in the world. Expect God to convict your heart as we experience life in a different culture.


We will be serving through Hands of Friendship Missions (, specifically partnering with Kurt & Tracy Stepka, missionaries to Haiti. Leading vacation bible schools, painting & cleaning, ministry in the market, & loving on orphans will be a few of the many ministry opportunities to take part of in Haiti. The following is a brief overview of expectations, qualifications, costs, & important dates.


Expectations: Student should understand that this trip is a mission trip, not a vacation. Know ahead of time there will not be AC, electricity is limited to the evening hours of 7:30-10:30pm, showers will be limited to conserve water, & we will only be served 2 meals a day (bring snacks for the lunch hour). The orphanage is a compound complete with 8ft cement walls, razor barbed wire, & a 24/7 security guard. Further, the house our team will stay in is gated & locked through the night hours. Our stay will be more luxurious than most of the population of Haiti. In comparison to America we will have subpar lodging, however we get to share the hope founded in a relationship with Jesus in a culture full of oppression & fear!



  • Must currently be a student in the 9-12th grade.
  • Take 6-weeks of evangelism training. (CanWeTalk)
    Or student outreach meetings.
  • *Have a current passport.


Estimated Cost:  $1400.00 includes airfare, lodging, transportation, & supplies. This is subject to change if prices for airfare go down in the coming months. Additional cost to you will include *passport fees, optional souvenirs, & snacks. We will plan a couple fundraisers as a team to help bring down this cost, but we want to encourage students to begin saving now for this max goal!


Important Dates:

  • December 3rd- deadline for mission trip commitment. $200 due.
  • January 15th- Can We Talk begins on Monday nights.
  • January 28th- 50% of costs due.
  • March 9th- Depart for Haiti!... Remainder of balance due.


*Begin to work on your passport now. It can take up to three months to get it back and in the Spring it can take longer. You will not be able to go without a passport.


Please contact Joe Zinkgraf to confirm your interest in the trip or to ask any additional questions.
