KSM Mission Trips are for students who are enrolled in a LifeGroup. They are a great way for LifeGroup students to live out what they have learned during the year of LifeGroups. Each student MUST complete the yearly LifeGroup aspects to be eligible for the summer mission trip. These aspects are given to the students at the beginning of the year and include being present regularly, memorizing scripture, completing Bible study lessons and taking sermon notes.
