We lead others to explore the breadth of the global Church and inspire the next generation of global workers.

Our short-term trips (one to two weeks) offer a unique opportunity to connect with believers across cultures, encounter God at work around the world, and grow deeper in personal faith. Facilitated by World Missions staff, these trips enable participants to step out of their comfort zones, serve alongside global faith leaders, and expand their understanding of the worldwide Church.

Upcoming Trips

Bogota, Colombia

June 1-8, 2024* | El Camino Academy (ECA) is a non-profit, interdenominational Christian school in Bogota, Colombia. They serve foreign missionaries and other Christian families. ECA is interested in teams serving for their June Jamboree each summer. This is a weekly program that is offered to students ages 5 to grade 6. Programming includes math, science, music, drama, arts and crafts, and sports. This would be a great trip for all ages to serve together.

Dearborn, Michigan

2024 Dates:* July 29-August 2, August 5-9, August 12-16

Dearborn, MI, is home to the largest population of Arabs in the U.S., many of whom are first or second generation immigrants or refugees. We partner with a local group to host English and math camps for refugee children to help them continue to do well in school. This is a unique opportunity to help refugee families in a very practical way while sharing Jesus’ love.

Many refugees children coming to this program have never encountered Christians before. As such, our team members should approach this trip with a posture of servanthood, an attitude of learning, and a heart to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

  • Cost: $500/person
  • Applications due March 15,  2024 (below)

Southeast Asia

December 10-20, 2024* | Each December, our team in the region runs programs that share the Christmas story with students in local schools. For many students, this is the only time they will hear the Gospel message. Partner with our local team to help share this message of Christmas hope.

Many students coming to these programs have never encountered Christians before. As such, our team members should approach this trip with a posture of servanthood, an attitude of learning, and a heart to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

  • Cost: ~$2,800/person
  • Applications due July 2024 (below)

*International ministry is unpredictable, and the implementation of this trip is dependent upon team members that apply.


We believe that maintaining Mission Excellence standards is vitally important to a successful short-term trip. To that end, our teams are finalized six months in advance of any trip to ensure adequate time for training and spiritual preparation. With that in mind, if you are interested in any of the trips, please complete and submit your application as soon as possible.
