South Korea
Evangelistic Mission Trip
October 17 - 30, 2018

All Information Subject to Change


CLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP

Who can go?
  • Anybody with a heart for missions and evangelism. You must be a U.S. citizen and an active member of a Southern Baptist Church with the recommendation of your Pastor or church staff minister. This mission trip is not difficult. If you can read aloud from an evangelistic tract, you can do it!

What will I do?

  • Specific tasks and assignments may vary from church to church, but in general you will:
    • As part of a team, work with 2 Korean Baptist churches to share the Gospel. A team consists of a pastor/leader and 1-2 others.
    • Share the Gospel using a bilingual Steps to Peace with God tract and an interpreter. A pdf version of the tract is on the resource page. You might share in a home, a business, a restaurant, a coffee shop, at the church, or anywhere people gather. At least some of the visits are usually prearranged. The Korean people are receptive to the Gospel, especially American witnesses!
    • Participate in special outreach events, community ministry events, and/or revival worship services at some churches.
 
Where will I go?
  • Our missions partner in Korea is the Korean Mission Board. By "partner" we mean the Korean Mission Board handles arrangements for this mission trip on the Korean side of the Pacific.
  • The Mission Board will assign your team to churches anywhere in South Korea.
  • While you are at the churches, you are guests of the local church.
  • You may request specific churches that you may have ministered to in the past, but they cannot be guaranteed.

How will I get to Korea? When should I arrive?

  • Because people go on this trip from so many different places, you are responsible for securing and paying for your own airfare.
  • It is suggested that you leave the US on Wednesday, October 17 for arrival in Korea on Thursday, October 18. This will give you a "free day" on Friday before the in-country orientation meeting on Friday night.
  • Please try to depart no sooner than October 30 (October 30 arrival back in U.S.). 
  • If you would like a free day after your mission concludes, you may depart on October 31 (October 31 arrival back in U.S.).
  • Inchon (INC) is the international airport serving Seoul.
  • Secure your flights early to get the best fare.
  • You will need to communicate your flight plans to the coordinator so transportation to Seoul can be arranged. 
  • Obviously, some flexibility on dates is possible, but missions housing will not be available before October 16 or after October 31.

Where will I stay?

  • In Seoul, missionaries will stay at the International Mission Board's Seoul Guest House or a nearby motel.
  • At the churches, missionaries will stay in a hotel or housing arranged by the local church- our partnership does not have control over housing at the church sites.

What is the cost?

  • At this time, we plan the missions fee to be $800/person ($1,200 per couple agreeing to double occupancy), which covers most in-country expenses: housing, travel, most food, & insurance. While you are traveling and in Seoul on free time, you are responsible for some of your own meals. This fee is tentative and subject to change until 120 days before departure due to changing, variable exchange rates. 
  • A $100 deposit per person or couple is due by September 1, the balance is due by October 1.
  • The missions fee does not include airfare (see above).
  • If cost is a problem, some $200 per person/couple scholarships are available. With the scholarship, the cost is $600 for individuals and $1000 for couples requesting double occupancy. Contact the coordinator for more information.
  • You can pay deposits and fees by making your check payable to Reach Missions Partnerships and mailing it to 325 E Pine St.; PONCHATOULA, LA 70454.
