Purpose Bound offers unique Caribbean travel experiences designed to accelerate your growth as a Christian. Our core experiences are one and two week sailing excursions that combine the elements of a spiritual retreat, a mission trip, and a Caribbean adventure living on a sailboat and exploring the islands. You'll engage in discussion-based studies, serve in underdeveloped countries, and experience island life and culture. See God's creation up close through hiking, snorkeling, sailing and more. And enjoy prayer, worship and personal reflection time in this beautiful tropical setting. Our advanced experiences include land-based missions work, Christian camp adventures, and multi-week leadership development and other focused training sessions. Individuals and smaller groups can select from our scheduled one or two week trips for 8-10 participants, and groups of any size can have a custom-designed trip created just for them. If you're ready to embark upon a journey that will change your life, we have a trip waiting for you.
Palm trees, white sand and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean provide the inspiring and reflective backdrop for your spirtual journey. Join with your fellow Christian believers for deep discussion and meaningful Bible studies. Find your own private stretch of sand for morning prayer and reflection. Worship together around a beach campfire under a canopy of stars. A retreat in the islands is like no other.
The natural beauty of the tropical islands stands in sharp contrast to the human needs just steps beyond the scenic shoreline. You'll venture into the heart of island poverty to serve and engage in hands-on mission work. Love on orphans. Feed the homeless. Distribute clothing to the poor. Repair churches, schools and homes. Every voyage offers a variety of volunteer service opportunities and mission trip experiences.
The Caribbean is a land of colorful culture, interesting history and breathtaking natural beauty. You'll spend significant time ashore, allowing you to explore and experience the islands up close, and to engage with the island inhabitants. You'll also enjoy the wonder of God's creation through snorkeling, hiking, sailing, kayaking and more. This "experiential learning" is an important part of every voyage.
Whether you are still searching for purpose in your life, or are actively pursuing it, the Purpose Bound experience will take you to the next level. You'll join with fellow Christians who are committed to growing in their faith and who have a heart to serve. Old and new believers alike will learn and experience things on their trip that will accelerate the internal transformation we are all called to pursue.
As the Bible states in Romans 12:2, "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
We know there are many things you could choose to do with your time and resources. But as believers, we are called to a different path. Daring to be different and rising above the crowd. Filling our minds with things not of this world. Investing time to focus on loving and serving others, and growing spiritually. Taking leaps of faith.
Join us, and we're convinced you will return from your Purpose Bound journey spiritually invigorated. With a renewed sense of purpose. Prepared to fulfill your calling. And closer to God than ever before. In a word, changed.
It all begins here...
