• Short-term Missions:
o Vision/Purpose: You may ask, “Why run short-term missions trips?”, or “Why participate in a missions trip?” Our response is, “Because our Lord himself told us to do so.” His clear instructions were to go into the world and tend to the spiritual and physical needs of the impoverished and poor in spirit.
o A short-term mission trip is a practical and quick way to do that and provides following benefits for people:
- A broader perspective of the world and increase cross cultural understanding
- A taste of culture other than their own
- A transformed view of the world and its needs
- An opportunity to share their faith in both word and deed
- It also helps church members understand Christian missions better and even consider full-time missions service.
o Involving believers in world evangelization will change their hearts forever and they will no longer believe that their home country, school, neighborhood, network of friends, jobs are the center of the universe.
