If God is calling you to serve Him through a mission trip, we can guarantee it will be a positive life-changing time in Russia.
Russian Missions schedules trips in coordination with each group’s time frame. That is, our trips are flexible to adjust to the number of volunteers, desired area and focus of the trip.
Previously, volunteers have participated in: Safe Haven Summer Camp, evangelism trips to Nomadic people in Siberia, Christmas Trip (Russian Christmas is in January) to orphanages and hospitals, Evangelistic Crusades in cities and remote villages, Puppet Ministry to hospitalized children, and assistance in various Russian Missions renovation/construction projects.
The cost of an average short-term trip is dependent on the number of participants. A general estimation would be around $2,500/person for a group of not less than 10 with this cost lessening contingent upon the number of people participating in the trip.
Russian Missions usually uses JFK Airport, New York. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from JFK. A deposit of approximately one-third of the cost would be required two months prior to the trip. Full payment is due one month prior to the trip.
COST INCLUDES: Round-trip from JFK, all ground transportation in Russia, three meals a day, lodging, Russian Missions translators and trip coordinators.
NOT INCLUDED: Passport fees, transportation to and from JFK Airport, excess baggage charges, accident/baggage/trip insurance, souvenirs, and personal purchases.
