Missions Trips

Every other year, CLA Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity to go on a mission trip.

2018 — Cambodia  — The Juniors and Seniors traveled halfway around the world to minister to the people of Siem Reap, Cambodia.  They worked with missionaries, Dareth & Thida Ly, who started a floating school on the Floating Village of Mechrey on Lake Tonle Sap.  They ministered to the students through sports camps, skits, worship, prayer and loving on the children at that school, and in the Dream Center.   They also had the opportunity to bless a family in a village outside Siem Reap, by rebuilding their house.

This video is lengthy, but gives a great overview of what our students did.  There’s also testimonials from each student and teacher who went.

In 2016, CLA students again ministered in Costa Rica, performing school assemblies in the public schools, participating in church youth services, serving at a food distribution site, and providing a carnival in the park for children in a gang-infested neighborhood.


When on a trip to a Spanish-speaking country, our students do children’s and adult outreach, and participate in Spanish and English church services. They prepare skits, dramas, choreographed Christian songs, and their testimonies – all in Spanish.

In 2014, CLA students ministered to children and churches in Costa Rica through children’s ministry and VBS-style evangelism.  They presented songs and dramas, accompanied by a clear Gospel message.
