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. 


The following trips are still accepting applications:

Bridgeport | July 27-August 3

The Bridgeport STAMP team will partner with BRC-supported local missions organizations and serve them by helping them paint and clean their facilities, perform minor construction, and assisting them in carrying out their ministry to their clients and local communities. Serve all week, one day, or anywhere in between! All skill sets are welcome!

Cost: $0 | Team Size: 20+

Rwanda | November 8-18

Rwanda is one of the most beautiful countries in the world but it has a tragic history of genocide. Join the team as they work with Rwandan churches who serve the most vulnerable. The team will help run a camp for teenagers and orphans and will assist churches in their economic development and compassion ministries. Businesspersons, bankers, teachers, counselors, and people with compassion for children are encouraged to apply.
