Other length mission trips are available as well, with prices varying accordingly. Longer mission trips cost less per day, and 30 day trips can be as low as $1500 per person including lodging and a couple of fun trips. Please contact us for an information packet, containing a detailed option and price list. We then work through the packet with you to help determine your trip cost. Due to airline costs being high during Spring Break and seat availability being more scarce, trips scheduled during this time should be organized more in advance than trips planned for other times of the year.

Payment schedule and Refund Policy
- 100% of the trip cost is due 1 month prior to departure. Please sent payments 5 weeks in advance to ensure it arrives on time. Most large payments are made by bank transfer which is the quickest and safest manner of payment.
- Another major difference offered by Strong Missions is that should someone from your trip be unable to come at the last minute, we will refund any unused money for trip costs up to the date of your group’s departure from the US. Basically, we do not want to make money from your group’s or any participant’s misfortune, so any money not used for reservations, materials, food, etc., will be refunded to you. This is our guarantee.
