Valor New York Mission Trip

New York City, NY
March 15-22, 2024

The “tired, poor, and huddled masses” that immigrated through Ellis Island 100 years ago have grown into more than 8 million people living in only 309 square miles. Rich and poor. Business people and the homeless. Drug addicts and at-risk kids. During your week-long short-term mission trip, RIM will guide you through all 5 boroughs and challenge you to boldly share your faith with all kinds of people. Lost in the masses, many New Yorkers feel alone and insignificant. Join the New York mission trip team and connect with those lost in the crowd. Introduce them to a God who notices them and genuinely cares!
