How do I choose a trip?
There are a few ways to choose the right trip for you. We think people have the best experience when they are able to use their talents, skills and experiences serving overseas. There are also some trips that are great for people who are new to the mission trips. You may also consider choosing a trip based on the best time of year for you, or an area of the world where you feel connected. For example: Is there a place you love to read about, or study? Do you get excited and listen when a certain place is mentioned in the news? Overall, pray and ask God for direction and confirmation as you consider this opportunity.
What is the age requirement to participate on a short-term trip?
Each trip will specify the age requirements.
Where do I get the money to go on a trip?
You and the rest of your team will gather support from others. We have found that many people don’t have the time or ability to go on a short-term mission trip but have the desire to be involved in some way with these kinds of ventures. We ask, therefore, that every person going on a trip raise his/her funds by writing letters to friends and family sharing the goal of the trip and the financial requirements to make their trip happen. Consequently each year, trip goers raise thousands of dollars as their supporters generously join in the adventure of short-term trips.
