Dallas is the place Wonder Voyage calls home. Most of us do not walk around with big cowboy hats and six shooters. We are a sprawling Metroplex of 4 million people representing nations from all over the globe. Don’t mess with Texas is our theme, but we do need your help.
Our Dallas missions trips and pilgrimages are journeys around the world. In 6 days you will visit 5 continents. You will travel around the world: perhaps playing soccer while serving African refugees, or eating Asian food while serving in a Thai community. What about aiding a school in a Hispanic neighborhood or feeding the hungry? And don’t forget a day of good ol’ cowboy hospitality. Consider Dallas for your next wonder voyage.

Every Wonder Voyage itinerary (mission trip and/or pilgrimage) is personalized to the desires, direction and personality of each group. This itinerary is only a description of the kind of journey we can create for your unique team.
- Day 1 – How Big Is Your God?
We begin our journey by meeting at one of the largest supply warehouses in the DFW area. We will venture deeper into West Dallas, opening our eyes to the vast needs of the community and visiting the Margaret Hunt-Hill Bridge. Upon arrival, we will settle in and discuss our hopes and expectations for the week.
- Day 2 – Dream Big!
The second day of our week will be spent both in the company of and at the service of those much wiser. We will serve (and play), while we direct our thoughts to our dreams and aspirations for the future. Are you dreaming big enough? And what trip would be complete without a little friendly competition? We will enjoy the evening at the lanes and see who can break 100!
- Day 3 – Waste Not…
Today, we will get our hands dirty and learn about the food needs of this city. As we dig into the earth, we will also dig into our own lives and evaluate the amount of waste. We will ask, “How vast are my resources?” Our journey will then take us to the Arts District to enjoy and explore the local shops. That evening, we will process and celebrate our experiences from the week, contemplating how to carry them with us as we return home.
- Day 4 – Now What?
Of course, our last day is not complete without some more service. We will end our journey serving an organization that strives to enhance the lives of local students and families. As we help provide the necessary resources to for the improvement of others, we will revisit our goals and dreams for our own futures. We will think back to what God revealed to us in the last few days and ask Him what He desires for us now. After a special celebratory lunch, we will wrap up our time together by returning to the monumental site. As we gaze at an enormous sculpture of our Lord and Savior, we will be faced with the reality that our God is huge, and He has chosen to use us in His incredible plan!
