2020 Short-Term Trips
PERU: February 2020 | RiverWind Inc., our Peru mission partner, runs a Pastor’s Training Center to equip indigenous pastors to bring the Gospel to tribes located in the rainforest along the Ucayali River. Past trips have built a kitchen and bathroom/shower facility for the training center, flying and boating in supplies and equipment to this remote place. This trip will assist with Vacation Bible School for local children.
ALASKA: July 2020 | We partner with Tanalian Bible Camp in Port Alsworth, Alaska. Alaska has some of the nation’s highest rates of suicide and alcoholism, and Tanalian works with local churches to bring the hope of the Gospel to children in a camp setting. The focus of this trip is assisting with summer camp for 3rd and 4th graders, with CTR team members serving in a variety of roles.
HAITI: December 2020 | We partner with a church in Hinche that operates two schools and cares for children orphaned in the 2010 earthquake. CTR has helped in past years with sustainable clean water projects for the church, schools, orphanage, and city, and has written grants to provide medical equipment for the hospital in Hinche. The purpose of this trip is to run a Leadership Conference to help teach the nationals basic leadership principles to aid in the future work of Haiti Christian Ministries.
HAITI MEDICAL TRIP: date TBD | A team of medical professionals will provide support for the hospital in Hinche.
GEORGIA (USA): date TBD | Clarkston, Georgia has become a destination for international refugees. 40 different nationalities speaking 60 languages are located in the town’s 1.4 square miles. During this trip CTR team members will share the Gospel, assist the community in service projects and fellowship with new believers in newly-planned house churches.

Free Community Thanksgiving Meal | NEW LOCATION IN 2019: 2621 North Oneida Street, Appleton.
Each year, together with support from local businesses, we provide a free Thanksgiving meal for 3,000+ people who would otherwise be hungry or lonely, since many service providers are closed for the holiday. After our previous venue was sold in June, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Grand Meridian. We look forward to serving our community with them! NEW THIS YEAR: All requests for meal delivery and transportation must be made by NOON on Wed., Nov. 27. Thank you!
This One’s for the Girls | Christ The Rock reaches out to women exploited in the Fox Valley’s sex industry. Our point of entry is local exotic dance clubs, where our teams offer the love of Christ, help for trafficked women we encounter, and practical resources and support for those who wish to exit the industry. For more information contact Nancy or Deb.
Community Partners | Christ The Rock supports and partners locally with Fox Valley Jail Ministry, LEAVEN, Life Promotions, Shepherd’s Care, and World Relief to bring the Gospel and love of Christ to the people they serve.
Christ The Rock Food Pantry | Our food pantry helps meet the needs of 700-1,000+ people in the Fox Valley each year. Anyone in need of food can get started here. If you’d like to help feed the hungry in our community, our food donation shelves are located just inside the main entrance doors.
