Short Term Trips

God has given Kensington a passion for building His Kingdom “here” and “there.” To do this we need to break out of the four walls and reach the four corners of the world. Take a risk and experience what it means to be His hands and feet to the nations. Join a Kensington Short-Term Trips team and live out your faith by walking alongside an indigenous leader to help in serving their own people.
