We’re going to Greece!
Join us for a trip to Greece! We are going on a mission trip to Athens, Greece to help support our missionary partner, Stephanie Kozick and the Cosmo Vision Center. To find out more information, keep reading…
There are several reasons why you’d consider joining us on this trip.
Biblically, we believe we are called to share the Gospel (Matt. 28:19-20) and serve others (Rom. 12:1, Gal. 5:13, Heb. 6:10). This is our heart as we embark on our trip to Greece, and we believe the primary reasons we should be going. Let’s let a love for the Lord, a love for others, and a desire to see Christ’s name known be the guides for our trip!
We want to be able to help support our missionary partner, Stephanie Kozick. By going, we will be able to be encouragement to her and her ministry, and be a practical support for the various activities we’ll be doing throughout the week. Along side Steph, we’ll also have the opportunity to help further the Gospel by partnering with the Cosmo Vision Center. We’ll have the opportunity to help run a summer camp for pre-teens and teens, and this is an amazing opportunity to see what God is doing in other parts of the world.
This trip has several personal reasons too! We’ll get the chance to experience the Gospel’s power and work in another part of the world. We’ll be able to see how Stephanie and the Cosmo Vision Center work to minister to those around them, and we’ll be able to learn how to serve well as we follow their lead. We’ll also get a chance to be stretched out of our comfort zone, but in the process learn how to greater rely on the Lord.
What will we be doing?
We are taking a team of around 14 people to Greece!
When: Friday, 6/24-Sunday, 7/3
We will be primarily serving at the Cosmo Vision Center to help support their summer camp ministry. We will be working with Stephanie Kozick to help run a summer camp for Greek, refugee, and American middle school and high school students. This includes, but isn’t limited to:

- Planning and running games
- Helping with worship

We will also have the opportunity to explore Greece and learn more about the area!
