Join the 2023 EXITE team as we serve in Curacao!


JUNE 15-25


This trip will be a great opportunity to take part in the ministry in Curacao and to develop your own relationship with the Lord. In Curacao, we will be serving alongside Grace Ministries International team members and the Grace Pastor of Iglesia Biblica. We look forward to serving in this church affiliated with GMI. We will be involved in ministries that include participating in physical labor at the church compound which includes the church, an office and the parsonage. We will also have the opportunity to serve the church in children’s ministry, teaching ministry and evangelism outreach.

As you prepare yourself to serve, expect that you will grow in your own faith. We will not only be teaching the Word of God, but we will be living out His Word as well. You will have an opportunity to create wonderful new relationships with your teammates and the people of Curacao while being challenged as we have our own personal prayer and devotional times.

At the EXITE boot camp held on the campus of Grace Christian University, you will learn about yourself and how to work together as a team with other high school students and college students. You will also prepare for your ministry in Curacao, including outreach events for youth and children, giving your testimony in a cross-cultural setting, and sharing the gospel in various venues.
