Mexico FAQs

During Easter week Bayside students and adults come together to serve as God’s hands and feet in Mexicali, Mexico. Mexico Outreach started in 1996 with just a small group of 26 students and has grown to over 1000+ because of the positive and lasting impact on the Mexican community and on the Americans that go. The large group divides into smaller teams that serve all over the Mexicali valley supporting and encouraging the churches and organizations we partner with. The week is packed with amazing sermons, a close community, piggy back rides, servant hearts, fantastic food, and powerful experiences

The Mexico Trip is transformational! Student and adult participants experience God in a new place, have opportunities to serve, develop lasting friendships, make life-long memories and God moves in their lives and the lives of those they serve. If students or adults are wanting deeper connection with others at the church, this trip guarantees new friendships and an authentic community experience. The need is great, and we believe God wants to use you to impact the world!

April 8-15, 2022. To participate on this trip, you must be able to depart and return with the group. If you cannot be with us for the entirety of the trip, then this is not the year for you to go. There will be no exceptions.
