Why Should a Pastor Take a Vision Trip? (VIDEO)

For Dennis Hermerding, lead pastor of King’s Cross Church in Cypress, Texas, a vision trip to Central Asia presented an opportunity to experience what he couldn’t get from simply listening to missionaries share their stories. Actually stepping foot in this Central Asian city allowed him to immerse himself in a culture. He wanted to understand the people, the culture, their creativity, and witness the gospel in action.

Vision trips allow pastors and other mission leaders to see firsthand what God is doing on the mission field and to further investigate how He might be calling them to be a part of His work. When a pastor from the U.S. meets with local believers, doctors, businesspeople, pastors, when he hears local believers share how they have been impacted by the gospel, it can be transformative, not just for the pastor, but also for the missions culture of his entire church.
