PPM exists to build up, encourage, and assist the local Church in serving and reaching their communities for Christ.
As an interdenominational ministry, we seek to celebrate the variety of the Church while leveraging what binds us together as followers of Jesus Christ. There is no more powerful example of God's love to a community than when His people come together to serve and advance the Gospel, all in the name of Jesus.
Connecting The Local Church On A Global Level
Praying Pelican Missions aims to give your mission team the opportunity to make a long-term, genuine impact on a local community. When your team joins us for a mission trip, your group will work directly alongside local ministries where you can help to meet real needs.
We believe that healthy short-term mission trips are possible by building upon genuine partnerships, long-term relationships, and sustainable ministry.
Praying Pelican Missions staff are committed to preparing you for your short-term mission trip. Our team of missions experts will be with you every step of the way. We will work with you to customize a mission trip experience that maximizes the giftings and skillsets of your team, while uplifting local initiatives in a location of your choosing.
Your mission trip will have a lasting impact on both your mission team and the community you are serving. To begin your mission experience with Praying Pelican Missions, contact one of our missions experts to discuss the different ministry opportunities and determine which ministry location is right for your missions group. After you register, our staff will guide you through the process of preparing and planning for your trip. From there, our staff will meet you at the airport (or host church for domestic trips) and then guide you through an amazing mission experience.
Praying Pelican Missions serves as a bridge between cultures, connecting local churches from around the world.

PPM’s ministry is an ongoing effort to build up, encourage, and assist the local Church 365 days a year. Nearly every week of every year, we have a team serving short-term somewhere in the world. Our partner pastors and ministry leaders receive ministry support, training, and encouragement when mission teams aren't on the ground through our partner support program.
A continuous effort to build up, encourage, and assist the local Church 365 days a year.
We believe in the local Church. This is our mission base. Each of our teams are partnered alongside local ministries to encourage and assist them in serving their communities during their mission trip.
Our heart is to be wholly invested in the communities we serve. Your team will have the opportunity to build lasting relationships on your mission trip with local churches and ministries by serving alongside them throughout the week.
We remain under the authority and direction of the local Church to ensure each mission trip has a lasting impact. Our fully customized approach aligns your team's gifts with the needs and initiatives of local ministries.
INTERNATIONAL & DOMESTIC
Our partner-based trips differ a bit by location, but are all based on the same principles we believe are crucial to healthy mission trips.
What are group leaders saying about their mission trip experience with Praying Pelican Missions?
I love PPM! I just got back from my second trip with them, and I cannot express how grateful I am for PPM and their awesome team! Mission trips are always stressful, but PPM is very organized and supportive. As a pastor, I love working with PPM because they make an effort to connect and support your students!
Jamestown Presbyterian Church
Short-term missions can be tricky to do well, but PPM does it RIGHT. Our leaders were from the home country, on the ground, assessed the ministry site well, and ensured the partnership would benefit all involved. Our trip was a beautiful example of the Body of Christ working well together and serving one another because of the prep and care PPM took. I would HIGHLY recommend going with them!! We will definitely be partnering with them in the future.
We just had our 4th Missions Trip through Praying Pelican Missions to the Dominican Republic and each one has been amazing. This last one was the best one yet! Big thanks to the PPM staff for helping us with all the logistics and process of getting everyone on the team registered and ready for the trip. While on the grounds in the DR the PPM staff was amazing and served right along with us. I look forward to our continued partnership and future Missions Trips!
