Short-Term Missions Initiatives



So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor.

Ministry Philosophy
We believe that those who participate in a cross-cultural or domestic ministry experience--adults and youth alike--begin to develop a great Christian maturity and become not only more committed to ministry and global missions but also more effective church members who actively engage in praying, going and/or sending. 

How you can be involved with our 2018 teams:

  • Pray for our leaders, team members and ministry partners in the coming months as they all prepare to serve across the globe.
  • Consider how God would lead you to give toward the expenses of these trips. Contact for more information.
  • Do you have a special skill that would help these teams with culture, language learning or overseas experiences in their destination countries? Contact Marilyn in the Missions Office to volunteer your services.
