Experience Short-Term Missions with a Youth Cartel Flavor
What if your youth group could go on a short-term mission trip with ministries and leaders who value the same stuff you do?
Starting in 2017 you can.
As you may know, over the past few years we’ve developed a great relationship with Praying Pelican Missions. They’ve been key players in many of our events and we’ve gone on a bunch of trips with them.
We at the Cartel believe that short-term missions can be the best or the worst thing youth ministries do; who you partner with to develop your trip (and what they value) makes all the difference in the world. We’ve taken our time and observed PPM over a number of years, both on the field, and behind closed doors. We like their approach to short-term missions. And so we started wondering: What would it look like if we did Youth Cartel Mission Trips through Praying Pelican Missions? They could do what they do best (putting together amazing short-term mission trips aimed at long-term relationships with local churches) and we could flavor those experiences with a special sauce we call “Cartel-y.”
Here’s How It Works
You’ll get everything a normal trip Praying Pelican Missions offers PLUS you’ll get some upgrades.
- All of our international trips have upgraded housing, so leave those air mattresses at home.
- All of our trips include ministry money, together we’ll meet some tangible needs of the communities we’re working in.
- All of our trips have a Cartel Trip Leader (Mark Oestreicher, April Diaz, or Adam McLane) that’ll be on the trip with you. During the day we’ll be ministering right alongside you and getting to know your students. Each evening, after dinner and your team’s debriefing time, we’ll gather together for worship and a teaching time.
- Of course, all of our trips include fantastic trip consulting from Praying Pelican Missions. But you’ll also get some great perks from The Youth Cartel.
