St. James’s has historically had one of the largest and most active mission programs in the country, including (pre-COVID) eight to ten annual missions trips to places as far-ranging as Haiti, Cuba, South Sudan, the Appalachian region of Virginia, and of course, right here in Richmond. Most of our mission trips require no special skills, just willing hands and compassionate hearts. For now, though, our mission trips are confined to Virginia.
In the future, a limited number of scholarships for missions will be available. St. James’s “Passport to Missions” program makes grant funding for eligible new missioners and other scholarships are considered on a case-by-case basis. To request a partial or full scholarship, call The Rev. John McCard (804)355-1779, ext. 318. All scholarship requests are confidential.
