Through Macedonian’s Mac-Trips, young adults have the opportunity to participate in missions through spiritual training and temporary placement with missionaries in the field. The teams spend time helping the local missionary in many ways. Since 1996 our S.T.E.A.M teams and Mac-Trips have continued that missionary work. Through VBS outreaches, youth camps, teaching/training, evangelism, faith promise seminars, and more, our young adults have reached out and shared God’s endless love with those in need. All around the U.S. and select countries a total of 953 workers have volunteered, 756 made professions of faith, 2,107 Bibles were given, 376 days were worked, and a total of 24,700 man hours were performed.
