Short-term Missions Trips

Short-term Service: Encounter Missions

You can be a part of the amazing things God is doing around the world. Short-term trips are an ideal first encounter with missions or for anyone who wants to put their passions to work on a grander scale. Likewise, youth groups, college groups, or small groups can spend a couple of weeks intentionally serving and learning about God from others in a different culture. No matter your vocation or stage in life, going on a one- to two-week trip with a group of people is an impactful experience.
