WHAT IS NEXT FOR 2021

Closing our 2020 summer mission trips in response to COVID-19 was one of the most difficult decisions we’ve made at Next Step. In the end, we didn’t want to be part of the problem — we wanted to be a part of the solution.

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t 100% predict how the virus will affect our communities and daily lives in the future. Despite this uncertainty, we are humbly going into 2021 planning to run a full summer of mission trips.

Mission trips are the beating heart of Next Step, and no one is more excited than us to serve alongside you as soon as possible — but we need to do this safely. All future mission trips will follow CDC guidelines and best practices to ensure everyone’s safety.

2021 registration is now open and we would love for you to join us! Until next summer, we hope that you continue to Serve Local in your own community.
