“Cottage Cove was absolutely fantastic. I never thought I could get that close with so many children within 5 days. They are such beautiful kids! If anyone has the chance to go work with intercity children for a missions trip I highly suggest it! God was with us the whole week! ...Best week ever.”  

– D. Kent, 2014 DTI Missionary from Indiana


Since 1995, Cottage Cove has consistently offered high quality short term missions trips in Nashville. Our best advertisement comes from those who have experienced one of these trips.

Bible teacher and researcher Brent MacDonald, together with his wife Angie, host public trips to the Bible Lands every second year. DTI Bible Lands is designed to take you on a journey through the best of the Bible Lands as a once in a lifetime experience. Unlike typical tourist and church trips, with myriads of traditional sites and tourist traps, this trip is focused on authentic locations and archaeological sites.  This unparallelled experience, from an evangelical and scholarly perspective, is filled with learning from beginning to end.  Since no two trips are alike, it's no wonder many have come more than once.  Space is always limited; we find smaller groups much more mobile.  See the links below for more details on past and potential trips.
