“To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” – Colossians 1:27
Never before has there been a time when people in the United States have enjoyed such an abundance of educational opportunities, material goods, technology, and knowledge. But never before has there been a generation that has been dying to experience and live out something that truly quenches their thirst for meaning and purpose in life. As Christians, we were created and designed to bear the image of God wherever we go. In doing so, we spread the glory of God throughout the earth. Only such a life can give us the true meaning that we are searching for in our everyday lives.
This summer, our theme is Hope of Glory. Christ in us is the hope of our future glory–the hope of the fulfillment of God’s promise to restore and reconcile all creation back to Him. We are on a mission to spread God’s glory by sharing the love of Jesus Christ, our hope of glory, to all nations. We invite local churches, students, young adults and professionals to partner with us to advance God’s kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. With the power of the Holy Spirit and the love of the Father, we desire to make Jesus known to the ends of the earth!
Every summer, over 700 students, young adults, and professionals from all over the world gather together to share the love of Christ on a number of short-term mission trips. Short-term mission teams consist of a wide variety of people from all across the world and are led by 4CM staff. Our mission trips are not restricted to any age, denomination or ethnicity. We welcome anyone to join us who has an earnest desire to serve our Lord Jesus Christ.
