Back Bay Mission will open its 2017 Mission Trip Calendar on January 1, 2016. Mission immersion experiences at Back Bay Mission are a great opportunity to serve the poor and marginalized of the Mississippi Gulf Coast while learning about poverty and social justice. They’re also a wonderful chance to build relationships within your congregation and with other congregations who are serving at the Mission.
Here’s what you need to know:
The 2017 Mission Trip Calendar opens on January 1, 2016. Beginning on January 1, you’ll be able to request mission dates by emailing our volunteer coordinator. We only accept requests for mission trip dates through email. Email provides us with a timestamp and helps make sure that dates are reserved on a first come, first served basis.
The calendar fills up fast. This is especially true for prime dates during summer vacation and spring break. It’s best if you have a couple of dates in mind, just in case the date you would prefer has already been reserved. If none of the dates you would like are available – or if the calendar is completely full when you request a date – we can put you on a waiting list.
Our fees have changed. In order to keep up with rising costs and the high demand on our housing rehabilitation program, we’ve made a minor adjustment to our mission trip fees. There is now a $200 per group administrative fee, a $75 per person housing fee, and a $100 per person materials fee.
