An African mission trip to invest in the Beautiful People and Communities in Masaka, Uganda!

If you journey halfway around the world, you are guaranteed to be stretched outside your comfort zone. But as you use your God-given talents, you partner with God in a special way to help share the power of radical love and redemption. Short-term mission trips to Africa are short in duration, but long in the beautiful ripple effects they can have in advancing Okoa’s mission in Uganda and the spreading of the Gospel. Short-term missions teams are precious to us. Join us, and be a part of something bigger than yourself!

Come Visit Uganda

Immerse yourself in Ugandan culture as we drive off the paved road and discover God's purpose for Uganda and for you!

What’s a Trip Like?

Okoa trips are a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We believe in community-wide transformation, and teams traveling with Okoa spend time in local villages for that purpose. You will likely see the same sweet faces each day as your team ministers and partners with the people in a myriad of ways. You will build relationships, spend your energy, meet tangible needs by assisting with major projects, and you’ll leave behind a piece of your heart when you go.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. -Galatians 6:9
