SHORT TERM MISSION TRIPS
“As you have sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” – John 17:18
We want to be a church that helps extend the ministry of Jesus to others both locally and internationally. One way we accomplish this is through short-term mission trips, sending those who will effectively express the ministry of Jesus Christ.
These trips allow us to serve and connect with God in new ways and through new experiences. Whether this is your first trip or your tenth, short-term mission trips are a great opportunity to learn, serve and share in bringing the gospel of Jesus to the nations.
We have a variety of mission opportunities through the spring and summer that may be of interest to you:
- Medical/Dental – If you are involved in the medical field and are interested in sharing your expertise as a blessing to others, this trip may be of interest to you. If you have no medical experience but have passion for serving others, we welcome you to be a part of this experience by assisting medical professionals.
- Construction – Whether you are a licensed contractor or you just really want to use a hammer, this is a great mission opportunity for you. Be prepared for long days filled with physical labor and getting a bit messy.
- Student – These mission opportunities are designed for middle and high school students only. Students will have a wide variety of experiences on these trips, including discipleship, vision, construction, and a lot of learning.
- Family – Serving on a trip alongside your family can have a significant impact. With your family, these trips will allow you to experience, process and pray about what God is doing in a specific area.
- Vision – Vision trips will provide you with hands on experience where you are able to observe and engage in Gods work all over the world. These trips can provide an excellent opportunity for God to expand your heart for people and understand the gospel in an international context.
- Discipleship – If you have a passion to teach others about Jesus, or are interested in learning how, check out these trips! Opportunities include, leading vacation bible school, evangelism, bible studies and maybe even sharing about Jesus to a large group.
