Student Missions


Students have the opportunity to participate in multiple mission trips. It is a real world opportunity to grow in wisdom, faith and confidence both inwardly and outwardly. Each experience builds upon the previous years' experiences. Students who want to get involved don't need to worry. We offer training to equip students for trips within their age range. Many of our students also engage in ongoing ministry in the neighborhoods of Grand Rapids. We believe the missional call of the gospel applies in neighborhoods, nations and the next generation!


Training is mandatory for anyone planning to go on a  BVC mission trip, as well as anyone interested in leading a trip.

Student trips are all Commissioned in main services at BVC on a Sunday morning.

Trip fundraising opportunities are developed by parents in cooperation with team leaders.  May is reserved for Student Short Term Trip Fundraising.   If you have a fundraising idea AND would like to organize it contact Ben Schulke.
