Mission Trip - New Zealand
CCV will be sending a small team to get to know new friends at Addington Coffee and Common Goods in Christchurch, New Zealand. This is a group of community difference makers who are using coffee, farming, and food service to build community and donate profits to the local church, meeting needs of the people, and even sending funds to a ministry in India that teaches vocational skills to women rescued from the sex trade. Our team has been asked to come witness their work, work alongside them, and even participate in some construction projects.
