Seven Reasons You Should Go on a Short-Term Mission Trip

1. Connect with and support the global and local church

  • We believe that the local church is the hope of the world, because we carry the only real hope within us. We know the truth -- that Jesus is the only hope we have!

2. Broaden your spiritual horizons - go deep with Christ

  • Serving others and getting out of our comfort zones shapes us and molds our character in Christ immensely. It challenges us to speak more boldly about His Gospel and serve with abandon. 

3. Experience a new worldview, gain a new perspective

  • One of the most widespread ways that a mission trip can change you, is by shaping and changing your worldview. Realizing that God is the King of the WORLD, not just the USA or your backyard, is an absolutely necessary part of growing spiritually. 

4. Meet new people and make friendships

  • Go and serve alongside a community of believers and local staff members who will surprise you, help you grow in your faith and who are excited about developing friendships with you and your team!

5. Make an impact that lasts 

  • Short-term missions often get a bad rap that they do more harm than good, because they are a one-week-and-done trip. We work to actively avoid that from happening. We pray your desire is to return year after year to develop long-term relationships with your partner, but we also believe in the power of partnering alongside local churches and ministries who are able to continue the work the other 51 weeks of the year. Your role is to help as much as you can while you are on the ground and serve with abandon, alongside your local leadership, and encourage and support them, so they have a little fuel added to their spiritual flames for the rest of the year. 

6. Follow the Great Commission

  • Jesus commands us to go into all the world. Starting at home and moving towards the ends of the earth. Short-term missions is an excellent way to get a group of people together with a common goal, to make an impact and expand the Kingdom of God!

7. Share the Gospel

  • And lastly, of course, to share the Gospel with the nations. To tell people - from far and wide - about the saving grace of Christ!
