[meh-ta-noy-ah] – Greek

(n.) the transformative journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life; spiritual conversion.


Our mission is to help others seek spiritual growth, change lives, honor God, serve humanity, and provide hope through international and domestic short-term experiences and long-term support.

Seeing life through the eyes of others in different situations in another place opens both the eyes and the spirit. Transformational life change and spiritual growth go hand-in-hand. This is done through cultural awareness, personal and spiritual development, and life-changing, long-term impact.

Trey Campbell, Co-Founder


Our purpose is to be of service to those who are oppressed, poverty-stricken, and problem-stricken. We seek to build a spiritual foundation for all who attend and be obedient to our calling through the Great Commission, as found in Matthew 28:18-20.

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Through missions and ministries, we pledge:

To never leave the invisible unseen, a heart untouched, or a person without hope.

To engage, empower, and encourage people to realize and act on their purpose in life.

To help people build their foundation of faith through service to others in need.


The story of Metanoia Missions & Ministries (M3) began in 2017, when a Southwestern Advantage* alumni, Claire Greene, asked Trey Campbell to bring a team where she was serving as a missionary in Nicaragua. A team was put together. While the organization seemed great, having not been there, Trey wanted to make sure the team members had a spirit-filled experience. He put together a devotion to be used at night to break down the day, explore faith, and share experiences and testimonies.

It turned out, the organization was fantastic! This led to the dual nature of short-term missions that makes Metanoia unique. By day: service to others and the community. By night: a focused approach to personal and spiritual growth. The experience is by no means a vacation or “voluntourism.” At all times, it’s go, go, go!

Important to the M3 story and a precursor to the original 2017 mission trip, starting from 2011 to the present, several cofounders of M3 have set-up and led numerous large-scale service projects involving 300-350 college students. These service projects have taken place annually throughout Mexico and in the Dominican Republic with Southwestern Advantage. Some of the many undertakings have included building community centers, adding additional floors to schools and safe shelters to increase the number of children who can be helped and educated, building houses for at-risk families, and building a library wing for children and special-needs children, just to name a few.

The team with Metanoia has over 94 combined short-term mission trips and large scale service projects between them.

*Southwestern Advantage serves as a Corporate Partner with M3. It is the nation’s oldest entrepreneurial program for college students in which they run their own business during the summer to help offset their educational expenses selling educational, leadership, and faith-based products to families. The mission is to help young people develop the character and skills they need to achieve their goals in life. Five of the M3 cofounders started their careers at Southwestern Advantage.
