Namibia (Trip is full) - 2022

Namibia is a vast land of natural beauty. You will see the savannah and its wildlife, sand dunes that meet the Atlantic Ocean, and the most primitive tribes still thriving in Africa. You will enjoy ministering in local church services, a trip to an orphanage, and a trip to northern Namibia for outreach and to minister in village churches. We will travel through Etosha National Wildlife Preserve and spend the evening watching animals. We then travel on to the coast of Namibia, where you will enjoy the beautiful town of Swakopmund and visit the sea. Your trip will end with a youth crusade where you will minister with singing, worship, preaching, and altar working.

Serve Project

You will have the opportunity to serve food at an orphanage,  improve a village church by planting trees in the churchyard and construct a fence around the church property.


I have met so many people through AYC and my personal network spans globally because of it. But its not just ANY people that I have met. Its the servants. The ones who give up so much to take the gospel to every nation, and the ones who skimped and saved to experience one week giving of themselves to others. Those who have gone for a few months, to those who live on the mission field. Those overseas and those on home soil. The ones who face down loneliness, discouragement, and isolation to do what God has called them to do. I’m proud to know the servants. I have learned so much about the servants heart in the years of going on AYC trips. Every trip gives me more insight on how I can serve, both in my church and my community. I wouldn’t trade the experiences I’ve had, the places and things I’ve seen, the lessons I’ve learned, and the people I’ve met for anything offered.
