How are we getting there?

We will be getting to Billings, MT via 15-passenger and 12-passenger rental vans driven by leaders.

Where will we be staying? Sleeping Arrangements? Safety?

We will be staying on the property at the Montana Dream Center. Since it is an old Elementary School, we will have the boys and girls in separate classrooms. Students will need to bring an air mattress and there are showers on the property.

In terms of safety, the building itself is secure 24–7 with key code secure access and cameras. There will be a curfew for the students as well. We will also have one of our own security team members from LPC on this trip!

On the reservation: We are out in the middle of nowhere on the reservation and the closest neighbors know Pastor David and our team are working on this house.

How will you administer first aid?

We will be able to provide basic first aid and pain relief as leaders however, we will contact you before administering to your student. *There is a clinic on the Reservation that we can go to for the housing project crew.*

Any meetings prior to the mission trip?

Sunday, April 21st – Student meeting and devotional @ 4pm in NextGen Room.

Sunday, May 19th – Student meeting and devotional @ 4pm in NextGen Room.

Friday, June 21st – Family Potluck Dinner and Prayer @ 6:00pm in the Family Room.

How will this impact my student?

At Landing Place Church, we believe that short term mission trips are environments where transformation happens. Your student will have an opportunity to serve those less fortunate, to experience time away from their usual routine, and to minister to the people in the Dream Center community and the reservation. We will have daily God Time where your student will have the chance to deepen his/her faith. We believe your student will be changed for the better.
