Short Term Mission Trips

Short term mission trips might only last a few weeks . . . but they could change your life and the lives you serve for a lifetime. If you are out for the summer from college or just have a few days to spare, short term missions are a convenient way to serve when you can’t commit long term.

But don’t let their length fool you.

When you are bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ, when you are feeding the hungry or simply helping the hurting heal . . .

You are making an impact for Him.

From hurting hearts here at home to war struck countries we’ve seldom even heard of, regardless of creed or the language they speak, whether they serve our God or no god . . . we join together to do what we can and bring the life-changing power of Jesus Christ to a world in need.

Read on for more information on short term missions in your area and abroad . . .

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
