L.I.T. Mission Trips

 Reach Blk Letters Shadow
 Equipping Leaders to Empower Kids to Fulfill God’s Call to Serve, Minister, and Be Missionaries
 "Over the years, I attended seven mission trips; however, I still remember the first time I gave the Gospel presentation. I was nervous, tired, and did not feel prepared to teach in front of a crowd. Before I started, my leader prayed for me, and at that moment the Holy Spirit took control. I don't remember what I said, but I remember feeling that God was using me to do His work and to glorify Him."

The Great Commission is the calling for all of us, including children.

Kids are the most effective agents to reach other kids.

We have personally witnessed God raise up young missionaries who are empowered by the Holy Spirit to share the Good News of Christ.

It has become a tradition for multiple churches that have caught the vision that kids are the church today and that God can use them in powerful ways to proclaim His Gospel Message.

Clint01“On my first preteen (5th-6th grades) mission trip in 2004, I personally witnessed the Lord move in ways that opened my eyes to see that kids do not have a junior Holy Spirit—they have the same power in them that adults do.” Dr. Clint May

From our first mission trip to today, we are committed to training leaders who train kids to be missionaries of the Gospel.


It is a joy when leaders train kids and release them to minister. It opens their eyes to God’s greater plan for their lives.20230615 141501 9A2F76

On the L.I.T. I-GO mission trips, kids do not just sit back and observe adults ministering. The adults step back and watch the kids minister and be used by God in powerful ways.

Each year, preteens, students, and adults come together with a common purpose to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to a lost world. L.I.T. has a proud heritage of sponsoring and hosting more than 31 mission trips in the past 18 years. There is no greater joy than providing opportunities for young leaders to become missionaries. Through our proven training, resources, and planning, L.I.T. paves the way for a powerful mission event.

You will witness the Holy Spirit working in and through the lives of preteens and students alike. 

Our L.I.T. Mission Trip vision is to partner with churches to go wherever the Church is not and plant the Gospel.

We desire to see people who are far from God come to know Him.

We aim to get outside the walls to help rescue people from being eternally separated from Jesus Christ. The L.I.T. mission trip provides a platform for preteens to be missionaries for Christ in communities throughout the United States.

If you are like many church leaders, having to plan one more event can be overwhelming. A significant aspect of the mission trip is that we provide all the resources you will need to train your preteens and leaders for the trip. We also do all the footwork to locate partnering churches to house church groups during the trip, and then we work with the partner churches to help them follow up with children after the conclusion of the mission trip.

What Do My Mission Trip Fees Cover?

Your mission trip fees cover everything once you arrive at your destination. This includes housing and meals (including breakfast, lunch, and dinner). It also includes lunches for the children who attend the daily Bible studies at the sites where your preteens will lead. The fees cover the cost of all materials, T-shirts, supplies, Bibles, and New Christian follow-up resources. You will also meet other believers from multiple churches and work together on mission.

Dr. Clint May has observed an incredible move of God during 31 preteen mission trips in the past 20 years. His book documents how the Holy Spirit works in powerful ways when they join the Lord on His Great Commission.
