Global Trips

FAQs

What we love so much about our trips is that each one has a special purpose. We have a variety of trips offered to best fit your gifting and schedule! Our trips have a variety of purposes (i.e. sports camp, leadership conference, medical, outreach, evangelistic, etc.), but the main thing we are committed to in each trip is that the Gospel is shared and the love of God is shown to each person we come in contact with.

For the most part, the minimum age requirement to be apart of an OSC Missions trip is 13 years old. With each of our trips, different age requirements are in place, to check what that requirement is, please select a trip above.

The cost of our trips depend on where we are going! Trips can go for as little as $700-$3,200 depending on where you are traveling to.

Before a destination is selected, its political situation, recent and previous history, and national issues are evaluated. We perform site assessments with the host ministry for each destination. We only work where we have personal relationships with the host and know the situation well. While a mission trip is in the planning stages, travel advisories issued by the U.S. State Department are consistently reviewed and frequent communication is kept with the host contacts. If a destination is determined to be unstable, it will be closed and all affected team members moved to other projects. We register each team member with the U.S. State Department on its Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.

We have an INCREDIBLE team of trained leaders who are equipped to lead you with excellence on the trip of your choice. Each trip has two leaders (male and female), who have a burden for the nations, discipling people, and seeing the Gospel spread to the ends of the earth! To see who is leading our trips, select a trip above.

Yes. Some trips are difficult physically. Many of our trips require hours on your feet, hot conditions, and uncomfortable transportation or sleeping conditions. The trip application asks you to list any physical conditions that could limit you during the trip, such as: back problems, heart problems, extremely poor eyesight, hearing loss, pregnancy or possible pregnancy. These items do not automatically disqualify an applicant, but may be addressed by the team leader if the trip’s activities may not be suitable for you. Other trips may be difficult culturally. Each country is subject to their governments rules and regulations and we work very closely with any restrictions that our international host require.

Each team member is expected to attend ALL team meetings, make timely trip payments, abide by all team rules, be a team player, be flexible, humble, teachable, and communicate with the team leaders efficiently.

We request that each team member “unplugs” as much as possible while they are on the trip. We want to encourage team members to be “all in” during the durations of the trip. Our Savior’s Church Offices are in communication with the Team Leader of your trip daily. There may be opportunities for team members to get online to contact home but such opportunities are not guaranteed. Many locations do not have WiFi. We will contact team members if any emergencies need to be made known to them stateside, and vice versa.

We will always work diligently to get immediate medical care for any sick team member, no matter destination. Each Team Leader is given a list of symptoms and medicine to help with said symptoms, and are required to travel with a First Aid Kit at all times. A team member’s emergency contacts and medical information on the trip application are vital to fill out to avoid any medical allergies.

In case of an emergency, family members should contact Our Savior’s Church offices at 337-678-0660 or email missions@oscfamily.com. Depending on who your team leader is, each team member will be given the trip leaders contact information, as well.

Safety is a our highest priority for all of our team members. Adult team members are to always move in pairs, even in airports. Minors are never left without an adult and are required to be in constant contact with their team leader during the entire trip.
