Discovery Program

What’s Discovery?

  • Discovery trips for individuals (or with a friend, spouse or family)
    Do you have special skills that could be helpful to missionaries overseas? Or do you want to get a bigger picture of life and work on the mission field for 1-3 months? This individual trip is geared to let you explore missions. WEC works in over 70 countries. Where do you want to go?
  • Discovery Team trips are taken by three to ten people who meet together for orientation, bond as a team, travel to another country for a two- to four-week summer mission trip led by an experienced WEC missionary, return for debrief and go home changed.
  • Form your own Discovery Team If you know a group of people who are interested in forming a team but who want help in finding where to go and how to do a missions trip, we can help! Contact us about team trips.
