Any experience with Group Mission Trips is full of challenge. We’re challenged to serve others in new ways, to grow in our relationships and with Jesus. The brand-new GMT Challenge will bring a new challenge to the Group Mission Trip experience.

Group Mission Trips, a ministry of Group Cares, creates short-term mission trips that have long-lasting impact on both the people and communities served and the participants who are serving.

To support the planning, preparation, execution of mission trips around the country, each participant of The GMT Challenge is asked to raise funds through their chosen activity. We’ve thought of many examples to inspire ways to challenge yourself to do something you’ve never done before. It could be exercise or sport or craft or hobby. View ideas below!

As a participant in The GMT Challenge, we will provide you with a fundraising webpage with tools and tips to help you reach your fundraising goal.
