FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where do we go?

    There are a variety of sites in both Kingston and Montego Bay areas. Check out our Partners Page for more information about the Mission Jamaica partners and projects.

  • How is faith involved?

    Large and small group devotions and worship will occur at the end of each day. They will include opportunities for discussions and reflections on our experiences in Jamaica. They will also include the faith celebrations and challenges that we discover living as an intentional Christian Community together.

  • How much does this cost?

    Sign up by September 30th for the upcoming Mission Jamaica Trips. A non-refundable deposit of $150/person is required by October 1st or you may lose your spot! A $550/person deposit is due 100 days prior to travel followed by the final balance due 85 days prior to travel. Mission trip prices are based on the value of the dollar and the cost of the airfare and hotel. Prices are subject to change without notice.

  • What do we do when we are not at mission sites?

    Even though we are often drawn to serve the whole time we are in Jamaica, it is also important to take time to rest, reflect, and relax. Thursday and Friday are days designed for rest and relaxation. You may choose to take advantage of the time at the resort, or gather others together for an excursion for shopping or visiting the local sites.

  • What about cultural realities?
    People are friendly. English is the national language (with dialect adjustment). Poverty is real and evident, whites are a minority race, safety concerns are similar to those in large US metropolitan centers. Check out our Traveling Abroad resources for more considerations when considering traveling to another country.
  • Jamaican Excursions

    During our days of rest and reflection, you can stay at the resort to take in the beach and activities there, or you can participate in an activity outside the resort through an organized excursion. Early in the week interests and options will be discussed. Minimums and costs apply. Check out some of the options that may be available.
