Near & Far
FPD students love to share God's love and serve others. Partnering together for mission trips is not only a bonding time for students, but also helps them see how they can use their talents to make an impact in communities locally, nationally, and internationally.
Recent mission trips include an annual In-Town Mission Trip, trips to Atlanta, and Casa Hogar in Mexico.
Serving locally, nationally, and internationally Mission Trip Examples
FPD students love opportunities to venture off-campus and serve others in their community, nationally, and internationally.
