Each of our mission trip locations are reflective of long-term partnerships we’ve fostered with local Christian leaders pouring themselves into their own community. Scroll through our locations below and click learn more for the beautiful story behind each of the places we serve.


Poverty has been prevalent for years in Nicaragua, and with the recent political crisis, they need more help than ever. Serving on a team will give you the opportunity to reach the next generation of boys and girls with the love of Christ.


Baltimore suffers from high rates of child poverty and other serious social issues. On a team, you’ll have the chance to reach out to homeless and impoverished children, families, and communities.


Share the Gospel with vulnerable and orphaned children suffering from severe poverty and malnutrition.


Serve at Trigo y Miel, our holistic, child-focused, community development program and church for the materially poor community of Olimpo in the heart of Oaxaca, Mexico.


Children in the slums of Uganda, many of whom are orphans, are served through our Light a Candle program. Serving on a team will allow you to show Christ's love to the children as they come to the program for nutritious food, fun activities, and the Good News.


Today, years after Hurricane Maria struck the island, families are still displaced or living in damaged homes. Serving on a team to Puerto Rico will give you the opportunity to help families get back into their homes with renewed hope for a better future.

why forward edge?

Every component of our mission trip experience has been purposefully crafted to increase the long-term impact for both the communities served and those who go to serve.


We encourage all of our short-term missionaries to embrace the reality that relationships are more important than accomplishments, and people are more important than projects.

Local Leaders​

We partner with passionate and dedicated local believers who lead long-term programs and initiatives in their own communities.


Our missionaries are not sent as "heroes" to "save" those living in poverty. Instead, they're servants, always focusing on doing things with people, not just for them.


Team members are encouraged to prayerfully consider how their mission trip relates to the rest of their life and are provided with resources and training to help them integrate what they learned on the mission field into their lives back home.
