Compass 28:19 was started in 2012 by John Jackson and Mike Gittins. Compass 28:19 exists to point local churches to Matthew 28:19’s directive of “making disciples” through the avenue of short-term missions. While many of our trips revolve around taking college students, we recognize that these students are members of the church. So, whether we’re taking a group ranging from high school to adult from one specific church or a group of college students from many different churches, our heart is to work alongside of the local church. Compass 28:19 is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
