Mission Trips

Mission trips allow us to live with and learn from our brothers and sisters in other parts of the country and around the world while sharing their struggles with hunger, poverty, natural disaster. We offer a helping hand, but most imporantly, we offer an open heart to all that we meet. There are opportunities for everyone to be invovled with mission trips at DPC, including participating in a trip, praying for trip particpants and for those whom with they will be working, and helping to provide supplies and support for volunteers.
A list of upcoming DPC mission trips and other opportunities to serve can be found below.
