NewSpring Missions

How much of a difference can a week make? More than you think! We partner with churches and organizations to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Together, we are making a lasting impact in the communities we serve.

About NewSpring Missions

Jesus tells His disciples they will receive power from the Holy Spirit, and they will be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. We believe the same is true today. We are called to reach our city, our state, and our world. 

Through NewSpring Missions, you have the opportunity to share the good news with people in Guatemala. And because we partner with churches and organizations, the work we do on the ground continues after we come home. Working together, we get to see the Great Commission happening before our eyes.

Hundreds of people have asked Jesus into their life during our trips abroad. But saying yes to missions won’t just change others — it’ll change you, too. 

Mission trips transform the people who go as much as they help the people we serve. Seeing God work around the world will expand your understanding of who He is, how much He loves you, and the power of the Gospel.
