Forward Trips are the short-term mission trips of NORTHIRON. These trips are a great way to serve the world around you. A Forward trip will focus on both outward and inward life change. Forward Trips transcend the week-long experience. When you take seven to ten days to live intentionally, love your neighbors and see everyone the way God sees them, you walk away changed, and you can and should apply that change to every area of your life. We call this “Living Your Mission.”


If you’re asking yourself, “Why go on a Forward Trip?” we think you’re on the right track.


  • You learn the Godly skill of risk-taking.
  • You learn to seek and build relationships with your teammates and those you serve.
  • You learn that in our attempt to create a life, we often miss the adventurous life, a life on-mission.
  • You learn that God will use a new physical location to bring you to a new place spiritually.
