Coach Ben Andrews' reflection on the trip: "Our time in Puerto Rico was truly life changing. It was awesome to see our players be the hands and feet of Jesus to the kids and people of the island. We enjoyed our time thoroughly and consider ourselves fortunate to be able to serve along side Chad (Mayes) and his family."
Women's Soccer | August 2015
Coach Lincoln's reflection on the trip: "This year it was a really cool experience to get to serve in our home state of Kentucky. We were able to help with flood relief in Johnson Co., serve in several rural church plants, and put on a soccer clinic for elementary, middle, and high school students in Inez, KY. We were also able to have a bit of fun by zip inning and spending two nights in the gorge. If was a great experience getting to serve locally."

Sophomore Ryanne Purcell's reflection of the trip: "This week flew by. I had a blast working with an amazing group of girls and hearing their stories. Not only that, working with a group of young girls to run a volleyball camp was probably one of the most heartwarming things I've ever experienced. God truly has blessed us this week, and I'm so glad we had this opportunity."
Women's Golf | June 2015

Softball | January 2015
Freshman Chelsea Scott on her trip: "The mission trip made me grow as a person, with my team, and closer to God. I grew as a person because I was humbled by doing community service and working at the church and the thrift shop. I grew with my team because we spent a lot of time in prayer and being really open with each other. Through that week of constantly being with each other, our team grew closer than I ever imagined possible. I grew closer to God because He constantly made His presence known. I could tell He was right there with us through it all."
Swimming | December 2014
Puerto Rico with Puente Missions
Coach Keyser on the trip: "Our trip to Puerto Rico was an absolute blessing. Our team gelled really well and team dynamics became very strong from the trip. We were able to train, serve a local church, and hosted stroke clinics for local swimmers. Watching my team serve and love on other people is one of the favorite parts of my job. I look forward to future trips with Chad and Chandi and Puente Missions."
Women's Soccer | August 2014
New York City with 12th Rock Ministries
Coach Brooke Lincoln reflecting on the trip: "Going to New York as a program was a great opportunity to grow and serve as a team. We went as 22 individuals and left as one. It is incredible how quickly mission trips can bring a group of people together. The bonding and chemistry that was created in 10 days in New York would have taken more than season to create on the field. Watching my girls serve and interact with the kids made me more proud than anything we will accomplish on the field this season."
Volleyball | August 2014
Coach JP Rader's thoughts on the trip: "What an honor it was to serve at the Casa Hogar Orphanage in Mexico. My team participated in a number of service activities that allowed them to be the hands and feet of Christ in the Naco community. Beyond that God worked in incredible ways as the girls shared their lives with each other, the kids in the orphanage and those that we fed with our outreach effort. God has again reminded us that short term missions allows God to change us in numerous ways as we give ourselves to Him."
