A Vapor trip is truly an adventure of a lifetime and provides a host of incredible, diverse and life-changing experiences for each participant. Our teams get to experience life in West Africa, East Africa or Haiti and participate in ministry at Vapor's centers, working alongside Vapor's indigenous staff.
Each participant is uniquely positioned to spiritually grow as they intentionally and creatively walk through God's Word, seeing His missional and causal heart come alive in the daily trip devotions. Team members witness the realities of the Third World, and meet some of the most beautiful people living in some of the world's most impoverished areas.
Trip participants are able to take part in a relevant and effective solution to the worldwide crisis of poverty as they participate in the vision of Vapor.
