Antiochian Mission Trips

Someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” 

Show me your faith without your works, 

and I will show you my faith by my works.

James 2:18

The Dept. of Missions & Evangelism is scouting locations. Our goal in these trips is to provide an opportunity for service and training on how to be a catalyst for change in our communities.

2021 Antiochian Village Gap Year


What does the Antiochian Village mean to us? Some have called it the place that changed their live. Others refer to it as Holy Ground and a priest factory. It is this and more! You are cordially invited to a Gap Year Program! Under the supervision of Fr. Chris Shadid, Camp Director of the Antiochian Village, interns will learn about servant leadership, hospitality, event planning, and non-profit management.


This mission trip is a combination of service and training.

Registration is not open yet for our mission trips of 2021.


Here are the details.

  • We only have space for 12 interns.

  • Interns will be living at the Antiochian Village Camp.

  • If you need financial assistance, we have two fundraising ideas.
