Summer Trips 2022 for Jr. High/High School/College Age
If you love working with kids , our “Introduction to Ministry Trip” is a great place to start learning how to serve and minister with Bending the Bow. Anza Valley Gospel Church is located in the beautiful Southern California town of Anza. We will spend several days together training and equipping our team to express the love of Jesus to the children and ministry leaders at Valley Gospel of Anza. After our team training concludes, we will spend five days ministering to kids through our “Supernatural VBS” format. This will be a fun trip with lots of team building, teaching, team time and personal ministry.
Mexico: (Prerequisite- Must have participated in at least one prior Anza trip)
Our trip to Mexico will be spent serving in two places in Baja: Mexicali and Ensenada. We have great relationship with the pastors and leaders we will be ministering with. Some of the things we might be doing: feeding ministry, skits, prophetic ministry, church services, playing with kids and anything else we might be asked to do on this trip. Come release God’s love and heart in Mexico with us this year.
Over the Edge Phase 1: (Backpacking Trip- no experience needed!)
Date: June 27-July 2
If you don’t know where you are going you might end up in a ditch! Over the Edge Phase 1 is all about you and your destiny and learning to hear God’s voice. This trip is for anyone who wants their heart to be stretched, who loves adventure, and who loves trying new things. We will spend six days together in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This trip is the perfect opportunity to enjoy everything your Father has made for you to enjoy. We will spend time learning to be still, letting the noise of life disappear, and using that time to allow Holy Spirit to speak to us. You will come home refreshed with His Truth and His love. We have seen God do so much with individuals on this trip, as they have given God time to speak to them.
Over the Edge Phase 2: (Backpacking Trip- Prerequisite: Must have completed Over the Edge Phase 1)
Date: August 2-7
This is our second level OTE summer backpacking trip. You must have completed OTE Phase 1 to go on this trip. This will be a fun trip with shorter days on the trail and more time to reflect and process what it means to become and grow as a man of God/woman of God. There will be plenty of fun time with teammates and we will enjoy all the fun stuff we normally do on each trip. Come learn what it is to be a man or woman of God.
Over the Edge “Extreme” Phase 3: (Prerequisite- must have done both phases of Over the Edge)
This is an extreme trip for those of you who have done Over the Edge Phase 1 and 2. This is a seven-day/eight-night, crazy-adventure trip, for those who have the heart to be challenged. This trip will pull things together from our previous trips and add some new extremes to challenge you physically, relationally, and spiritually. This will be a great time to hear God’s voice, before heading into the next season of life. In addition, plan to continue building strong relationships with a community of men and women who want to pursue all God has for their lives both now and for their future. You will walk away from this trip empowered to move forward because you are walking hand in hand with the Jesus.
