What's Discovery?

  • Discovery trips for individuals (or with a friend, spouse or family)
    Do you have special skills that could be helpful to missionaries overseas? Or do you want to get a bigger picture of life and work on the mission field? This individual trip is geared to let you explore missions. WEC works in over 70 countries. Where do you want to go?

  • Discovery Team trips are taken by three to ten people who meet together for orientation, bond as a team, travel to another country for a two- to four-week summer mission trip led by an experienced WEC missionary, return for debrief and go home changed.
  • Form your own Discovery Team If you know a group of people who are interested in forming a team but who want help in finding where to go and how to do a missions trip, we can help! Contact us about team trips.

What will you discover?

What it’s like to live immersed in a different culture and language.

How missionaries respond to the challenges of ministry.

The joys and frustrations of cross-cultural relationships.

How you respond to living a long way from home and well out of your comfort zone.

Perhaps, where God is leading you next!
