If you’re looking for an opportunity to be stretched and used by the Lord to tell others about Jesus, this trip is for you! This GO Team is designed to LEAP (Learn, Equip, Affirm & Pray) for our partners in Larissa, Greece – a local church plant and community outreach ministry. We will be working with Pastor George Yfantidis and his family to support their efforts to lead people to a lifechanging connection with Jesus through the Christian Center Larissa. You will also spend time building relationships in local gypsy camps, sharing the love of Christ with this marginalized group.
For more information about this trip please email the team leader, Billy Whitaker, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, all applications must be submitted 90 days before departure for international trips and 60 days before domestic trips. Applying for a GO Team does not confirm your spot on the team. Once applications have been reviewed, you will be notified of your acceptance or status on a waiting list. If a team is full you can still apply and be put on a waiting list should a spot become available. If a Campus is not able to fill their team, any open spots will open to applicants from other Campuses 120 days prior to departure for international teams and 90 days prior to departure for domestic teams. Once your application is accepted you will be asked to submit a deposit ($100 for international and $25 for domestic teams) as well as complete a travel profile in Managed Missions. Submission of your deposit and profile will confirm your spot on the team.
We will continue to monitor any restrictions to travel due to COVID protocol in the US as well as the host countries for our Teams. Because restrictions fluctuate, all locations, dates of travel and costs listed are tentative and subject to change. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility!

About George and Despina Yfantidis
We started a church in Larissa with the focus of reaching the city. The Lord has done a great work in our church many have believed some left to serve in other churches cities and countries. Right now we try to serve the general population of Larissa, the gypsy community and the homeless and needy. We also in the process of opening a coffee place for reaching especially the younger generation of Larissa.
Larissa Christian Center is also one of the very few churches that grew out of the evangelistic efforts of the very few believers in Larissa, Greece.
George and Despina with their two sons and one daughter have planted this church over 25 year ago and it grew to around 80 people while many of discipled believers returned to their respective cities and countries to spread the Gospel and serve the Lord there.
