Can I go on a mission trip if I live outside of Lubbock, TX?
Absolutely! We have several people outside of Lubbock that travel on Pursue Short-Term Trips every year. If you live outside of Lubbock, please note the following:
- Trip Prices are based on travel from Lubbock. You will be expected to come to Lubbock on your own expense and travel from Lubbock with the team.
- You must attend our “Big Team Training” weekend in the Spring
Can I use my airline miles or book my own travel?
No - we work on getting group rates and pay as a group. Therefore, all travel details must go through the Pursue Missions Office. You are welcome to get airline miles for these trips but you cannot redeem your miles for these trips.
