The 50x50x20 Initiative is a calling that the Lord has placed on The Orchard. Our goal is for 50% of The Orchard will send the other 50% of The Orchard on a Mission Trip by the year 2020.

For the year 2015 we have identified 4 different short term missions opportunities where we as followers of Christ at The Orchard can participate in The 50x50x20 Initiative.

What follows is a brief description of those opportunities:
