NewSpring Missions

How much of a difference can a week make? More than you think. We partner with Freedom Church to share Jesus’ love with people around the world. Together, our churches are making a lasting impact in the communities we serve.


Around the world, children are growing up without parents, without a safe place to call home, and without an education. NewSpring Missions gives these children hope and a future by supporting Freedom Heroes, a ministry of Freedom Church Kampala and Freedom Church Siem Reap.

By partnering with local churches, we’re able to participate in ministry that continues long after our team comes home. Jesus started one organization in His time on Earth—the local church. The local church is the hope of the world. And when we work together, we begin to see The Great Commission happening before our eyes:

You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. – Acts 1:8

Since partnering with Freedom Church in 2014, NewSpring volunteers have helped build a home for boys in Uganda and seen hundreds of people ask Jesus into their lives.

But mission trips don’t just change the lives of those we serve. Mission trips change those who go as well. Seeing God at work around the world will expand your understanding of who He is and the power of His church.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Millions of people visit Siem Reap on holiday each year, traveling to explore ancient temples that surround the city. Despite the crowds of tourists and the influx of ideas and culture that they bring, less than half a percent of the population of Cambodia is Christian. Many people have never heard of, or experienced the love of Jesus.

Freedom Church meets in the heart of Siem Reap and has a vision to connect local people to a life changing relationship with Jesus. Through Sunday events, small groups, a leadership Academy and outreach into communities around Siem Reap, the church is expressing God’s love in powerful and practical ways.

Kampala, Uganda

Kampala is the capital and largest city in Uganda. Rapid expansion and industrialization have made Kampala a destination for those looking for a better life. But within the growing city is a growing crisis.

The number of children living on the streets of Africa has increased 70 percent in the past 10 years. An estimated 32 million children in Africa do not have a home, and some estimate 10,000 of those children live on the streets of Uganda. Many are orphans. Others have come to Kampala to earn money for themselves and their families. Some were abandoned. Some are running from abuse. And some were trafficked into the city by their families, who were trying to earn extra money.

Bruges, Belgium

Bruges is a picturesque city on Belgium’s northern coast. Bruges remains one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, but its Christian heritage has long since faded. Now a gateway to mainland Europe, the city’s cobblestone streets bustle with native Belgians, immigrants, and tourists from all over the world who need to hear about the Gospel.

Freedom Church meets in the heart of Bruges. Its vision is to connect anyone, anywhere to a life-changing relationship with Jesus. Through Sunday events, small groups, and their youth ministry, Zeal, the church is breathing God’s life back into this ancient city.

Ciudad Vieja, Guatemala

Guatemala, the most populated country in Central America, is flush with vivid colors, steeped in history, and full of smiling faces. Poverty is widespread and made worse when natural disasters strike. Those who were already struggling to provide food for their families are forced to fight even more for things we take advantage of every day.

Fuente de Vida Church in Ciudad Vieja, just outside of Antigua, believes the hope of Jesus can overcome all situations — including extreme poverty and adversity. Through Sunday services and community outreach, the church is sharing the Gospel with their town.
