Why: To raise mission funds for the student ministry at First Baptist Church Ripley, MS. FBC is committed to taking the Gospel to all nations and raising up and training students to GO! The student ministry teaches that Jesus is the hero of the whole Bible and the Great Commission is not just found in Matt. 28:16-20, but the whole Bible is one big story of God’s heart for the nations. Every year we want to take two mission trips 1. North America 2. International. The whole High School ministry can go on the North American mission trip, but we take our graduates on the international mission trip. If a student stays with us from 9th-12th grade they have the opportunity to go on 5 mission trips. This year we will be going back to the Dominican Republic and severe local church planters.
