We partner with congregations raising up new generations of global workers.

Short Term Trips

Leading Teams – Our short-term trips, facilitated by World Missions staff, offer a unique opportunity to connect with believers across cultures, encounter God at work around the world, and grow deeper in personal faith. Participants get to step out of their comfort zones, serve alongside global faith leaders, and expand their understanding of the worldwide Church. See a list of upcoming trips.

Helping Plan Trips – In recent years, participation in one- to two-week missions trips has increased dramatically, and these trips have the potential to be enormously beneficial for both workers and the communities they serve. However, despite best intentions, these trips can often fail to make a lasting impact — or even hinder existing ministry — if not carefully planned.

As a member of the Standards of Excellence in Short-Term Mission, we desire to maximize the lasting impact of short-term missions work. Following guidelines set forth by this group, we help congregations:

  • Assess goals, needs, and context of missions trips
  • Connect with leaders from host communities
  • Work through logistics and details
  • Provide training opportunities for participants

To learn more, or to have BIC U.S. World Missions come alongside you in planning a trip, please contact Vicky Landis. We’ve also put together a self-guided short-term missions manual as a resource for you to download.

Speaking Engagements

We want to share the ways lives are being transformed through missionary service around the world. Missionaries on home ministry and World Missions employees are available to speak to your congregation, youth group, retreat, conference, or small group. Topics:

  • Work being done around the world
  • Understanding foreign cultures
  • Ways to get involved in missions work
