"Go ye into all the world …"
As followers of Christ, we are called to selflessly reach out to the poor in spirit - to bring the Good News and a helping hand - wherever they might live, whatever their circumstances, and whatever ours.

Roberts missions opportunities tend to be focused on long term relationships with people and places to increase our influence where we serve.

The Dublin missions trip is a unique ministry opportunity coordinated through the Dublin Christian Mission (the oldest continuing mission in Europe). Team members will have the opportunity to work with children and teens, helping with after school and evening clubs. These clubs include one-on-one interaction, as well as the opportunity to lead activities (games, soccer, basketball, crafts, etc.). Team members will also work at the Lighthouse homeless shelter where they will serve meals, sort clothing, and participate in worship. The team also travels to the mission’s campground outside of the city to prepare the property for summer camps.
