Might you be wanting to organize a trip with your church family, your colleagues or spouse? Or is God calling you to provide a ministry of presence and relationship building like Rev. Dr. Ray Charles and his wife Teri will be doing in late October with Rev. Dr. Charles Jones, the Area Director of Europe, Middle East and Liberia, when they travel for seven days to Monrovia, Liberia? The Short-Term Mission Office is here to help you facilitate the process.
Are you a teenager, young adult, seasoned adult, curious about global service and eager to carry the Light of Christ outside your comfort zone? Let Jeremiah 29:7 undergird the process.
The Short-Term Mission team is here to help you discern, provide pre and post trip orientation sessions, facilitate the match of a heart’s desire to finding a ministry to come along side and collaborate with. You will be asked to complete a few registration forms, in compliance with the Standard of Excellence steps we abide by, in order to be eligible for the provided medical evacuation and repatriation travel insurance. Contact the Short-Term Mission team at: email@example.com to get the conversation started.
