Short-Term Mission Trips

Global Partners

Short-term trips offer an incredible opportunity to build relationships with our mission partners, learn about God’s kingdom in different contexts, and leverage some of the gifts God has given us to His glory and the good of others. They do not offer us the opportunity to be experts or super-Christians; instead, they humble us as we see God at work in different, often challenging circumstances around the world. Short-term trips show us how similiar we really are - image bearers of God struggling with the effects of a sinful nature and fallen world, saved only by God’s grace through Jesus Christ. At the same time short-term trips show us that our worldviews are often very different and we have a lot to learn both from one another and through one another about our Heavenly Father.

There are many wonderful reasons to participate in a short-term trip, but there are equally important reasons to consider these opportunities carefully and proceed with humble self-examination.
