International Missions is part of our Canyon Springs Outreach Program.
Just Go: Our Missions Ministry at Canyon Springs Church offers something for everyone. We know, according to Scripture, that God wants to send us out into this world to make disciples. We are all commanded to “GO” whether it is down the street, downtown, across the border or half-way across the world. We want to provide opportunities for people to JUST GO and be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Upcoming Mission Trips & Events
We have experienced God’s hands in and through all of our mission trips, as we traveled to Haiti, Uganda, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Belize, and 20 minutes down the freeway to the urban streets of San Diego. We encourage you to pray over joining the hands and feet of Jesus as we travel to spread His word.
God has presented us with several opportunities in 2023 to “JUST GO” and share His word with the people of Guatemala, Mexico, and Uganda.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in any of these mission opportunities, please attend our Missions Information Meeting 2023.

GUATEMALA Spring 2023
We will partner with We Are Graces and their work to help families in and around Antigua, Guatemala. This will be a hands-on experience designed for those who want to see and participate in what God is doing in Guatemala. We will visit the school that GRACES supports and meet and interact with the children through English classes and sports activities. We will also go on several home visits to see where these students live, meet their families, and provide them with food and encouragement. Team members will also build stoves and deliver them to families who need them most. We will end our time by creating a “Family Night,” including dinner, games, and activities for these families.
Uganda Fall 2023
Want to go to Uganda and check up on the work that Canyon Springs Church has been doing in this beautiful country? We will again partner with Children’s Heritage Foundation in Gulu Gulu, Uganda. This trip will include work projects to repair and improve Gulu Springs Church, school classrooms, and girls’ dorm rooms. In addition, we will provide physical and emotional health education to students who come from homes still suffering trauma from atrocities from the conflict between the Ugandan government and the LRA. We will also share the love of Jesus with the children in their classroom and through special story and craft times.
THE FREEDOM CHALLENGE/ACATENANGO VOLCANO, GUATEMALA November 2023
Our Challenge. Their Freedom. Calling all women! We will partner with The Freedom Challenge to raise funds and awareness for those impacted by human trafficking and support Grace’s ministry in Guatemala. Join us as we take on the physical challenge of hiking the Acatenango volcano in Guatemala and the fundraising challenge of $3000 that will help enslaved women on the path to freedom. We will also spend a day delivering food packages to Guatemalan families in need. Sign-up today and ask a friend, sister, daughter, or mother to join you and train for the challenge and raise funds and awareness together!
There will be three levels of hikes available: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced —We can do this!
Once we get in that relationship with the One, our job is to reach the next one. That next one might be in your family, your neighborhood, or your office. That next one might also be across the world.
