Open Short-term Mission Trips (STAMP)

Our STAMP (Short Term Adult Missions Program) goal is to provide adults with an opportunity to serve people around the world in the context of a one- to two-week trip. STAMP projects have included construction, medical clinics, kids' programs, evangelism, and teaching English. Black Rock STAMP teams have served in over 20 different areas of the world, including Nigeria, Panama, Ghana, Thailand, Dominican Republic/Haiti, Rwanda and Bridgeport.
