Missions Trips in 2017

We are happy to report that we have just released our Man Up and Go Missions Trips for 2017. We have a big slate of trips on tap this year, including our first ever Man Up and Go trip to Florida, where we will love big on the kiddos in our backyard in the United States. 

In addition to this trip and our annual RAGBRAI trip to Iowa in summer, we will be facilitating mission trips in 2017 to the following destinations:

  • Uganda
  • Ethiopia
  • Nicaragua
  • Dominican Republic
  • Kenya

There are three ways for you or your organization to get involved with a Man Up and Go mission trip in 2017: 

  • You focus on providing a meaningful experience for your group, church, or organization, and let Man Up and Go handle all of the logistics, from flights to insurance, budgets, paperwork, and more.
  • Let an experienced Man Up and Go trip leader run point on a trip for your group. We will handle the logistics but also provide the content, curriculum, relationships abroad, and everything else you need to make a difference. 
  • Simply come on an existing Man Up and Go mission trip. Join with other believers from around the U.S. as a group or as an individual in an already planned trip.  

 

 

If you'd like to learn more about the different ways to partner with us, please call us at 727.266.0226, or go to our Contact Us page here and submit a request for more information. 

Make sure you Sign Up for Our Newsletter for the latest information from Man Up and Go. Our slate of trips should be available to view on or around the 1st of October on our Destinations and Trip Schedule page. 

May God bless you richly as you look to carry out the admonition found in James 1:27.   

CCHS Nicaragua - October 2017

Wednesday, October 4, 2017 to Saturday, October 7, 2017

The Entrepreneurial Leadership Class (ELC) at Calvary Christian High School (CCHS) will be partnering with the Emprendedora School outside of Managua, Nicaragua, in a pioneering trip designed to forge a cross-cultural, perpetual relationship with the students there. The CCHS ELC will act as Venture Capitalists looking to crowd-fund a project pitched to them by the Nicaraguan students, and then gather documentation to tell the story to potential investors. This quick but intensive trip will set a strong foundation for years of collaborative learning between the schools yet to come.


Qualifications: Trip participants must agree and adhere to CCHS initiatives, policies, and procedures at all time. Most importantly, participants agrees to represent Jesus Christ to the people of Nicaragua as His ambassadors (2 Cor. 5:20) and conduct themselves in a manner worthy of the calling they have received (Eph. 4:1).

Nicaragua November 2017

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 to Saturday, November 4, 2017

Man Up and Go has an open door to minister in Corinto, Nicaragua, in a partnership with Little One ministries. We travelled to Nicaragua in 2015 and conducted baseball clinics for the community there, seeing first-hand what a fatherless community looks like. Identifying with our heart for wanting to enact change through the father, the local pastor in Corinto would like to rally the men in his community with a Men’s Conference to inspire and inject hope into the men. We are looking for a group of men who would like to conduct a 3-day conference teaching biblical manhood and leadership. This trip would be an ideal one for a men’s group to claim ownership over in the name of Jesus.


Qualifications: Trip participants must agree and adhere to Man Up and Go initiatives, policies, and procedures at all time. Most importantly, you must agree with Man Up and Go's Purpose Statement: To fight for the fatherless by restoring families around the globe.

Kenya December 2017

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 to Friday, December 8, 2017

Man Up and Go has an excellent relationship with the folks at Teens for Christ in Kenya, and have been invited to conduct their annual December conference. Teens for Christ has access to students in the public schools, having influence over 200,000 teens over the course of a year. This opportunity to unapologetically proclaim the Gospel in a public school setting is something we could never do in the U.S. We are looking for a small team of men and women skilled and gifted in leading and teaching to help us conduct the conference. We believe that discipling these young men and women at the conference will help mitigate the number of fatherless both by preventing future orphans and cultivating hearts to care for current ones.


Qualifications: Trip participants must agree and adhere to Man Up and Go initiatives, policies, and procedures at all time. Most importantly, you must agree with Man Up and Go's Purpose Statement: To fight for the fatherless by restoring families around the globe.
