Where is God Calling YOU to GO in 2018?

Over the past 8 years, the Immanuel family has commissioned over 1,200 people to serve on 132 different GO Teams spanning every corner of the globe. Through the support and onsite ministry of those teams, the Immanuel family has served more than 116,000 people and shared the Gospel with more than 35,000. Throughout that time, 5,295 have come to faith in Jesus Christ! 60,679 copies of God’s Word, each in the host language, have been personally delivered across dozens of countries into the hands of many who have never even heard the name of Jesus.

In 2019, we have designed a multitude of opportunities for you and your family to jump in and begin investing personally into the spiritual eternity of the people of our world. Prayerfully consider the following trips and find where God is calling you to go in 2019!
