CKC Missions

The CKC family often adventures together in far places in an effort to grow closer as a community, to grow outside of our comfort zones, and to serve those whom we encounter. In the past, our staff and alum have ventured to Spain, Mexico, Kenya, India and Nepal. We will update this page as new trips gain steam. Contact to inquire about any trips in the works.

2023 Ecuador Trip Information: CKC is planning a trip for our staff and alumni to volunteer with the Missionaries of Charity (Mother Teresa’s religious order) in Quito, Ecuador and visit a mountainous region of northern Ecuador for a wilderness experience. This is an intense, hands on volunteering opportunity in an impoverished part of a large South American city. The daily schedule will include active volunteering, prayer with the Missionaries of Charity, down time, and opportunities to explore and experience the culture of metropolitan and rural Ecuador.
