In 2005, Youth Outreach Ministry (YOM) began their summer missions trips program by sending a team to Ghana, West Africa. In 2008, YOM began sending several teams across the world including one to Australia to minister 14 days specifically to BIMI missionaries and Pensacola Christian College alumni Steven and Christy Maldoff. Since 2008, YOM has sent several additional teams to Australia where their ministry has greatly expanded to 12 different local churches over 32 days across four different Australian States. During Summer 2018, YOM will send 13 student teams all across the world from Ecuador to France, from Romania to Paraguay, and from Spain to New Zealand and points in between including Australia seeking to reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to assist and be an encouragement to the local missionaries and national church leaders.
From June 28-July 30, 2018, Team Outreach Australia will travel to “the land Down Under” to serve in the states of Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, and Queensland. We will have the privilege of ministering to 12 local and aboriginal-community churches, conducting youth rallies, participating in winter teen/young adult camps, conducting Holiday Kid's Clubs, and participating in several personal and community-wide projects throughout the Melbourne, Mildura, Adelaide, Sydney, and Brisbane areas. To top off the experience, students will enjoy a little sight-seeing along the way including visits to Melbourne's Queen Victoria Market and holding cockatoos at Mt. Dandenong, driving along the Great Ocean Road to view the beautiful Australian coastline, holding koalas and petting kangaroos at the Gorge Wildlife Park in Adelaide, and visiting Sydney's Opera House and Inner Harbor. Like previous trips, by God's grace this year's YOM Australian missions trip seeks to provide an unforgettable comprehensive ministry experience that offers each team member a spiritual, personal, and practical life-changing experience!
