Y4O mission trips focus on Sharing the Gospel, Training Leaders and Caring for Orphans. While each mission trip offers a unique experience, all attendees will gain a cultural awareness and spread God’s love to children who have been removed from their homes or orphaned by the loss of their parents or abandonment. Our trips are designed for rising 9th grade students to young adults, with some specific trips for young adults only. These trips are all Gospel centered and each participant will grow deeper in their relationship with Christ.
Y4O has been serving at the Old Bight Mission Home on Cat Island since 2009! Y4O supports the home throughout the year by sending personal items, food, cleaning supplies, and clothing.
The teams will partner with the Royal Bahamas Police Force to hold camp at the Old Bight Elementary School. Camp will be for 80-100 young people of the community including the children from OBMH. In the evening the team provides worship and devotions to the children at the home.
Other potential places you might visit around the island include: Old Bight Beach, Old Bight Creek, the local grocery stores, and Mount Alvernia, the Bahamas’ highest elevation. A big activity is crabbing! The Bahamas are well known for their land crabs and crabbing is a highlight each week. Nightly worship and devotions are also a highlight for most who go to Cat Island.
Each mission trip offers an opportunity for you to grow deeper in your relationships with Christ and fulfilling your call to “Go!”.
We are hopeful that there will be trips to Cat Island, Bahamas this year! Our friends have missed us and we can’t wait to return to see them.

More About Bahamas
The Bahamas are English speaking islands in the Caribbean. They are known for their beautiful beaches, rich heritage and vibrant colors.
They have a laid back demeanor and place value on relationships rather than timeliness.
Camps & Leadership
Trips typically have a camp style element where participants provide music, messages, and activities around a central theme. Sports and STEM are examples. Participants are actively engaged in all elements of the trips and develop leadership skills along the way.
Transition & Life Skills
While in Nassau, participants lead worship, messages and transitional/life skills training for the young people living at one of two children’s homes. Evenings are spent growing deeper in their relationships with each other and Christ, while staying at a local church.
