SHORT-TERM MISSIONS

We organize regular short-term teams to work in partnership with local ministries to provide ministry services that the local partners can use to help in their existing community outreaches.  Our teams conduct Medical/Dental Clinics; Children’s and Youth Programs; Business as Ministry (BAM) Seminars/Mentorship for local businesspeople and entrepreneurs; Computer Classes for youth and young adults; Vocational Classes, such as sewing or construction, English as a Second Language (ESL), and Discipleship Bible Studies.  The Missions Ministry plans and prepares teams to minister in all of these areas.

Jesus called on us to fulfill the “Great Commission” in Matthew 28:19-20.  This was a command for all of us to go and share the gospel with those that do not know Jesus and make disciples of all nations.  In addition, we are called to fulfill the “Great Compassion” in Matthew 25:35-36— meeting the practical needs of the people to whom God sends you.  In order for us to be effective witnesses for Christ, we need the power of the Holy Spirit as described in Acts 1:8.

The following information will help guide you through the trip application process and preparation for the mission trip.  Should you have any questions, please contact us:
