Spring Break Missions
Taylor offers a variety of mission trip opportunities for students to learn, minister, and witness during their spring break. International and local projects are designed so you can use your gifts and talents to share your faith.
During these trips, you can share your faith through business development, children’s ministry, construction work, teaching English, family ministry and evangelism. Recent destinations students have traveled to include the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Spain, Daytona Beach, Indianapolis, and Marion, IN.
