Church’s ‘micro mission trips’ nurture its reach

CARMICHAEL, Calif. (BP) -- The Church on Cyprus called them "micro mission trips," short-term initiatives that were affordable and close to home to increase missions participation. There are "all kinds of reasons" why some people shy away from mission trips, said Peggy Tumlinson, a missions committee member at the church, named for its location on Cypress Avenue in Carmichael, Calif. "[S]ome find it frightening; some find it hard because of finances; some just are not sure what to expect," Tumlinson said, so the church sought to make missions outreach "accessible to anybody including children in the family."
