Pray about joining a short-term team in 2019!

Note: Some trip dates have changed since original publication.


North Carolina (April 22-April 25)

A shorter trip and smaller team for those who can spare a few days, this ministry team will facilitate the SIM-USA Spiritual Life Conference by providing a children’s ministry team to care for and encourage children of missionaries while parents “recharge their batteries” for ministry. Missionaries Stan & Faith DeLaCour will host this team. Team size: 5-10

Dominican Republic (July 9-16)

Encourage national leadership and athletes of GO Sports through English camps and activities. Partnering with missionary Kyle Bradley and GO Ministries, our hope is that both sides walk away encouraged toward mutual transformation through the intentional time spent together. Team size: 5-15

Czech Republic (May 24-June 2)

Team members join missionaries Nathan and Vera Beck and local believers to pioneer relationships with people open to the gospel and long-term discipleship. Since the English language opens doors to conversations in many venues, this is a great opportunity to plant seeds for follow-up by the national church and its believers long after the team leaves for home. Team size: 4-15

Short-Term Missions Initiatives


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. 


  • Pray for our leaders, team members and ministry partners in the coming months as they all prepare to serve across the globe.
