We would absolutely love for you to join us on one of our teams!! We believe that when you are given the chance to serve others around the world, your life will never be the same! Since its inception in 2009, The Awakening has led teams to Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Malaysia, Australia, Haiti, Hungary, Wales, Belgium, Romania, and the Netherlands. Whether you are a student or student pastor, we want to give you that opportunity. The Awakening can help you find a spot on one of our open teams or design a team for your own group!

Open Teams

Our “open teams” provide opportunities to anyone who desires to join us and serve!


In each location, we connect with and serve local IPHC churches and communities with a goal to support and encourage their on-going ministry. It’s amazing to see how God can take a group of people who have never met before, unite them by His Spirit, and use them to make a difference in the lives of the people with whom they come into contact!

Upcoming Open Teams

  • Guatemala

    June 13-21, 2017

    Our mission trip to Guatemala includes ministering at local churches as well as reaching out to thei communities and connecting people to our churches and IPHC leaders who live there. The opportunities that are provided include door-to-door evangelism, drama ministry, and work projects.  It is our desire to share the gospel message every chance that we get with all we encounter.

  • Panama

    July 25-Aug 2, 2017

    Our mission trip to Panama will include local church and community ministry, various work projects, as well as helping to connect people to existing IPHC churches that can continue to serve them long after we are gone. Our goal is to leave Panama better and closer to Jesus than when we arrived! We will be sharing the gospel through preaching, teaching, music, drama and loving on people every chance we get!

Custom Teams

If you are a student pastor or leader and don't know the first thing about planning and leading a mission trip, don't worry! Just let us know. We would be happy to help you build a team from the ground up and lead your group on a life-changing adventure!

The people that I had the privilege to meet in Costa Rica reminded me of my passion for missions. Our team traveled to Costa Rica to serve their people, when ultimately they are the ones who served us. I am thankful for broken Spanish and broken English because somewhere in between, the brokenness is mended. There are no language barriers in the Kingdom of God.
