Wisconsin Lutheran is excited to offer ten mission trip opportunities in the United States that give our students the privilege of lending their gifts to other WELS ministries. Beginning this year, we are offering domestic trips that are closer to home and less expensive so that more of our students have this opportunity. We are also offering new trips to Alaska and Georgia and other destinations. United States mission trips are open to our current juniors, sophomores, and freshmen. Seniors may also apply; however, preference will be given to juniors, sophomores, and freshmen.
The United States trips and tentative corresponding dates are:
Chicago, Illinois - July 21-28
Detroit, Michigan - July 14-21
Lafayette, Indiana - July 24-30
St. Louis, Missouri - July 22-28
Eagle River, Alaska - June 17-29
Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - July 8-15
Bozeman, Montana - June 24-July 1
Colorado Springs, Colorado - June 10-16
Pflugerville, Texas - June 10-17
