Short Term Trips

Our teams work in a holistic manner, serving the people we visit with assistance in areas including construction, computer work, medical clinics, school and university programs, feeding programs, social action, and partnering in the spiritual work of the local churches.

Icon_keyOur short-term mission trips are centered around our three focus areas: Church Planting & Development, Mercy & Justice, and Urban & Professionals. Each trip has a colored icon that represents the area of focus, with many falling under multiple areas.
