Mission Trips

upcoming Mission Trips

Welcome – Thank you for your interest in participating in a Brentwood UMC Mission Immersion Trip. Click to complete our Online Application (you will need your passport).

South Africa: May 21-28, 2017

In 2007, Brentwood UMC funded the construction of a church building in the Tumbleweed community of South Africa.  This initial relationship grew into a ministry that now connects sponsors to children and teachers in three different South African schools.  At each of our partner schools, children receive a God-centered educational foundation, as well as emotional and spiritual intervention and care.

This year from May 21-28th, we will be taking a missions team to learn more about our South Africa ministries and how best to support them as well as working with them to create a vision for our partnership going forward.  Mission trip members will build lasting relationships with the students we sponsor, the teachers we support, and the staff of Brentwood Society Church, Angels' Care, and Thembelihle School.

  • Cost: $1000 plus airfare
  • Available slots: 20 people
  • Type of Mission: Vacation Bible School, Worship and Skills training
  • Team Leader — David Ssebulime 

If you are interested in being a part of our missions trip to South Africa, please contact Rev. David Ssebulime at

UGANDA: JUNE 28 — JULY 11

In 2017, Brentwood UMC in partnership with Raise the Roof Academy, will break ground on a new church building for the people of Kalungu district in western Uganda. Since 2013, individuals from BUMC have been visiting Uganda to work with children and adults. The scope of the work on this mission trip will entail the following:

  • Cost: $1100 plus airfare
  • Available slots: 20 people
  • Team Leader — Dana Orange Vacation Bible school: Each day, the team will work with over 1000 students to share God’s love through lessons, games, crafts, and sports.

Mexico: Fall 2017

Brentwood UMC has been in partnership with Give Ye Them to Eat (GYTTE) since 1992, regularly sending mission trip groups and financial support.  GYTTE is a social outreach project of the Methodist Church of Mexico created to combat hunger and poverty in the rural sector. The purpose of the Give Ye Them to Eat is to strengthen the capabilities of marginalized people and communities to meet their basic needs, and to determine and sustain a just and integrated development process. Participatory methods and development tools are used to create conditions in which change can take place from within the communities.  GYTTE uses people-centered approaches to development.

Mission trip groups from Brentwood UMC work alongside GYTTE's neighbors to support their community development efforts by training local women to be nurses, constructing housing and much needed infrastructure such as local churches, and working on their teaching farm. This trip is a true spiritual journey.  Not only do we provide helping hands, but we participate in daily meditation and spiritual learning sessions that help us understand how our Christian faith and poverty in rural Mexico intersect.

  • Cost: $900 plus airfare
  • Available slots: 14 people
  • Type of Mission: Construction, Medical and Skills training
  • Team Leader — Dwight Armstrong .
