TRIP SCHEDULE

Listed are our upcoming international mission trips. We would love to invite you to join us on one of these trips as we travel to impact the world through action sports outreach, evangelism, and discipleship. Through each of these trips our mission and goal is to come alongside our international partners to assist them in the work the Lord is doing both in their community and the regular and consistent outreach they are leading. Through work projects, outreach events, contests, and events, our hope is to introduce as many individuals to the Good News of Jesus Christ through these trips and plug them into a local church body for continued discipleship. If you are interested in having Ride Nature lead you, your school or youth group on a mission trip please email us at trips@ridenature.com.

 

THAILAND

OCTOBER 3 - 13

Trip Overview // Thailand is a beautiful Country in south east Asia bordering Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Laos. Home to over 68 million people,Thailand is rich in unique Asian culture. The dominate religion in Thailand is Buddhism with 94% of the Thai people following Buddhist practices. Very little people there speak English, so it can be difficult to talk to the natives without a translator. Thailand is a place that needs the Gospel desperately and we are happy to accept the call to go.

On this trip we will be partnering with the Blauer family to come along side them serving the surf/skate community and share the Gospel. We will be hosting surf camps and competitions with the purpose of building relationships and giving the people and opportunity to see, hear, and respond to the gospel.

Ministry Focus // Surf outreach, surf camp, evangelism, leadership encouragement, some skate outreach also.

Trip Location // Phuket, Thailand

Trip Cost // $650 in country + flight to Phuket

PUERTO RICO

AUGUST 1 -7

So close, yet like another world….Puerto Rico! For those in Florida, it’s a short flight and cheap trip. No passports are needed for this trip since Puerto Rico is a part of the U.S. which also helps keep the costs down. PR is full of action sports enthusiasts, world class surf, incredible street skate spots, lots of fun skateparks, yet still a ton of need, especially since they took on so much damage from the Hurricane in 2017. We would love to have you join us this upcoming summer as we return to Puerto Rico. There will be lots of surfing and skating, but also some intentional time to talk about life, God, the Bible, and what it really looks like to be a follower of Jesus. We’ll be teaming up with our mission partners there in Country and hosting some surf camps, skate outreach, and visiting multiple skateparks all centered around sharing the Gospel. On our free day we’ll do some hiking, cliff jumping, and some swimming under a massive waterfall.

Trip Cost: $650 in country + flight to San Juan

We will be rebuilding the skatepark, doing some renovations to that and helping to host some skate events in Panama City, Paraiso, and some surrounding communities.
