Missions Trip 2023

New Hope Church is sending a team to support Broken Arrow Bible Ranch in June of 2023! Broken Arrow is a camp ministry located in Vanderwagen, New Mexico. The ministry's purpose is "to proclaim the gospel through Christian camping in missions. Reaching primarily native people groups of the southwest, BABR partners with local churches and individuals to accomplish this objective." Our teams primary goals will be to support the long-term missionaries and short-term volunteers as they lead and minister to 100-200 campers; specifically, our team will serve through leading campers in activities, and helping with maintenance projects around the camp. Below you can find information on 1) why we chose to partner with Broken Arrow, and 2) details about the missions trip.

Why Broken Arrow?

  • Established Ministry: Broken Arrow has 55 years of camp-ministry experience. They're an established and respected presence in the area. They have unique knowledge and experience to be able to uniquely minister and share the Gospel in their context near the Navajo and Zuni Reservations.
  • Shared values and beliefs: All the camp's (awesome) activities are ultimately geared toward sharing the Gospel to kids and teens. Broken Arrow also shares core beliefs with our church.
  • Cost: Jesus' command to his disciples was to "go and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19); sharing God's Gospel to those overseas is a great way to fulfill this commission, yet sending teams overseas often involves a big price tag per person. Broken Arrow's proximity to our church, as well as the costs they'll cover for food and lodging, mean that we are able to send a team to support them at a fraction of the normal cost of a missions trip.
