Quest Trips are service-learning trips that allow students to explore new cities, serve with different organizations, and learn how people are engaging in their local communities in ways that serve God’s Kingdom.

In past years students have traveled to bigger cities like New York City and Washington D.C. to get a glimpse into what it looks like to be a faithful citizen in these big urban communities. Students have spent a week serving at Lamppost Farm and in Three Rivers, Michigan exploring topics like hospitality, food justice, and helping with chores at the farm and enjoying good community in Three Rivers. Teams have traveled more locally to Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Ohio and Aliquippa, PA to understand how our own neighbors are working to recover and renew their communities after the steel industry crashed.

One year we sent a team to Ecuador to serve with an organization and to spend time exploring the natural wonders through hiking and summiting a mountain!  And since Hurricane Katrina, students each year have travelled to the Holly Grove Neighborhood in New Orleans to meet with and serve Trinity Christian Community. If you are looking for an opportunity to make new friends, serve alongside a team, be challenged to really think about what it means to engage in local communities, and learn from Christians who are serving faithfully in different places you should apply for a Quest Trip!

All Quest Trips take place over spring break. Trip prices range from $85 to $450 depending on where you go. The trips for 2015 will be announced late in the fall semester and applications will be due on December 1st.
