GoConnect trips are a unique way for those looking to gain a glimpse into European mission to encounter ministry and culture. Each trip designed to connect you to missionaries doing real ministry in one or more locations. GoConnect trips are the perfect opportunity for you meet and encourage multinational missionary teams and see how God working in the spiritually desolate field of Europe.
A GoConnect trip is usually 10-14 days in length and are open to anyone over 18 who wants to engage in ministry and get acquainted with specific cultures. They are designed to get you connected with mission, the Kontaktmission philosophy and our international leadership team.
Most trips begin in Wüestenrot, Germany where you will spend time with our leaders at our headquarters at our annual CrashKurs (or Crash Weekend). This is an extraordinary event that brings people from all over who are interested in mission for a time of preparation and training for your cross-cultural experience. The CrashKurs is a weekend long event that incorporates fellowship and worship with transnational Kontaktmissions leadership as well as peers also going on GoConnect trips and internships. This is a unique event that is led and translated in both German and English and in the past even Russian! From the CrashKurs you will travel to your host country and meet our missionaries to begin your GoConnect adventure!
GoConnect Extend is a unique way to experience mission, ministry and culture with a customized trip. You can choose from a diverse range of countries and settings to put together a trip that suits your gifts, interests, and personality for God’s purposes and the needs in those countries.
KM believes it is important for you to be able to see what mission work is real-ly like, and to do that it helps to see multiple locations and ministry styles! An extend trip gives you an opportunity to experience a variety of ministries with our international mission team in several of our 34 countries. You and our team will have plenty of options for optimizing your on-field experience to help you see where God will be able to use your gifts for mission.
Extend experiences are an extremely cost-efficient way to optimize your trip finances. Adding countries/locations to one trip is very inexpensive in comparison to taking multiple trips, and it greatly broadens your experience. GoConnect Extend trip lengths depend on how long you want to stay, how many locations you wish to visit and the experience you want to gain. Typical lengths range from 3-8 weeks.
