Short-Term Trips at Otterbein are an important part of being obedient to God. The Bible says, “go and make disciples.” So we go! Local2Global ministries believes that it is God’s people, the Church, who “send” those who will go out into all the world. We use a process of “Support Discovery.” Support discovery is making the church aware of an opportunity to send its own on a mission for God. Financial and prayer support is realized as the body of Christ “listens” to God’s leading and provides the finances and prayer so that Otterbein Church can successfully fulfill the great commission.

Each opportunity that OC Local2Global provides will have an information table in the lobby several weeks before the event. You can always call or email Pastor Dirk for more information, 717.762.7147.

Upcoming trips

Project NEXT (July 23-26) | A Missions trip for students currently in grades 4 & 5

All students are strongly encouraged to attend the trip with one of their parents. The trip is to Liebenzell Mission in New Jersey and is led by Dirk Small, pastor of outreach, service and Local2Global ministries, and Amanda Myers, director of children’s ministries. The cost of the trip is $200. Please do not raise any funds until after our first meeting. We will work with you to use “support discovery” strategies to fund the trip. We prefer that you do not do fundraisers.
