Previous Mission Trips


New Orleans 2006

Our missions program really kicked off in 2006 with a trip to New Orleans.  In New Orleans Capital Life teamed up with Desire Street Ministries and gutted houses eight months after hurricane Katrina hit.

South Africa 2007

Working with leaders affiliated with Westville Presbyterian Church in the metropolitan Durban area, the 2006 Capital Life South Africa Missions Team helped to lead a Vacation Bible School in an impoverished urban Zulu village.  The team presented the Gospel through Bible lessons and dramas, assisted with praise and worship, and led activities such as painting, crafts, games, and sports.  The team also ministered in a hospice for babies afflicted with conditions such as HIV and cerebral palsy.  Finally, the team painted a school classroom that was sponsored by the Christian ministry Crossroads International.

Guatemala 2007

In 2007, we went to Guatemala and worked with a church that is a site for Compassion International (El Verbo).  We participated in activities with the children and did construction on the school connected to the church.  It was an amazing experience deeply connecting with the local church members.

Philippines 2009, 2011

Capital Life Church had the privilege of partnering with the Anasco family and their ministry in Iloilo, Philippines.  The Anascos work with the Sonshine Center–a ministry to street children and their parents–and support the missionaries who use the center as a base for their outreach.  The Anascos train missionaries from all over the world to carry on the work of ministry, evangelism, and teaching.  While in country, the Capital Life team helped with three kids camps, taught Bible Study, ministered to families who live next to mountains of garbage in the city dump.  We washed feet, clipped nails, donned silly costumes, played sports, fed the hungry, hugged the lonely, and encouraged the Filipino Church.   To learn more about their ministry, click on this link: http://anascomissions.blogspot.com/

Niger 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012

For the last five years, Capital Life has sent teams to Niger, Africa to organize, fund, and participate in children’s camps. We do this in conjunction with long term missionary friends of Capital Life, Neal and Danette Childs. They have a host of ministry activities in Niger including a radio ministry, feeding program, schools, and they have planted about 30 churches.  One goal in facilitating the camps is to raise up future Christian leaders and allow the children to have fun.

For those of us that have been to Niger only once or multiple times, the experience has been life altering. View past videos here on our YouTube page, and to learn more about the Childs’ ministry, go to http://www.reachafrica.net/
