    Our One Week Sailing Retreat with Missions Work

    No matter where you are in your faith journey, our one week core trip is a great starting point for experiencing Purpose Bound. This trip is based in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and focuses on spiritual growth while providing an introduction to missions work through a sampling of hands-on service projects on several islands. Participants will also experience the culture, history and natural beauty of the islands, as well as engage in water sports and other activities. If you are seeking personal spiritual growth and exploring your heart to serve, this is a one week experience that could change your life.
