International Belgium

European Adventure

The Adventure

On a trip to Zaventem, Belgium, you’re minutes from the breathtaking capital buildings of Brussels and a 10th-century moated castle in Ghent. This Lifetree Adventure is ideal for youth groups traveling internationally for the first time (home base is just 5 minutes from the airport). Although you’ll have modern amenities similar to those in the U.S., your group will experience important service in the midst of Western European culture—and eat a lot of french fries!

Operation Mobilization has been working from their base in Belgium to share the gospel with Europeans. They transformed an old paper factory into a coordination hub for short- and long-term missionaries. Now developed into a hospitality and conference center, their headquarters is used to promote evangelism and church planting. Your group will work on construction projects to help renovate and expand this facility to provide more space for growing Christian ministries.

The Service

Help renovate an old paper factory being used as a Christian conference center and ministry base! It currently hosts two church congregations—and, after the expansion, will have space for two new ministries! Regardless of your construction skill level, you'll bless Belgium by investing time in:

  • Serving alongside a local church
  • Construction (skilled or unskilled)
  • Transforming a ministry base

Whether you're painting, cleaning, or doing construction work, you'll be helping expand a ministry—all just a train ride away from historic cities and sightseeing opportunities!

The Faq

Anyone with a heart to serve others and a desire to grow closer to God is welcome to join us on a Lifetree Adventure. We welcome a blend of individuals and groups. Our domestic mission trips are designed with youth groups in mind, but many of our international trips are ideal for youth groups, too. International Lifetree Adventures are ideal for any group from your church, an individual with a heart for Christian service, or any configuration of families. We’ve had parent/child travelers looking to share an experience before high school graduation, women’s groups, a group of families from a congregation, men’s groups, and individuals seeking a new adventure. Truly any variety of ages, groups, and backgrounds are welcome. Your mission adventure concierge can give you more details, and help you discover which trip is best for you and/or your group.

The Lifetree Adventures team provides care to nearly all the details of your trip, including lodging, meals, project coordination and supplies during the mission experience, discipleship programming and materials, on-site support crew, and a T-shirt for every participant. The fee does not include transportation or meals to and from the trip location or during your time off.
