OverviewLeadership requires encouragement and opportunity if it is to grow. That's why each year Linfield selects fourteen emerging leaders from the junior class to exchange their comfortable lives for the third world reality of Haiti on a short term mission trip.
The mission? To effectively plan and implement a 4-day Vacation Bible School for 250 enthusiastic Haitian children. Students spend an entire semester preparing, developing personal stories of faith, and building team unity, a process that helps cultivate the maturity and confidence necessary for the trip. Once in Haiti, they lead kids in crafts, sports, and skits, providing messages of hope through stories of God's love. While called there to serve, our students invariably find themselves blessed, forever impacted by the incredible joy of the people they encounter.
