Short-Term Mission Trips

We all want to make a difference, but how can God use you in two weeks, a month or half a year? Explore short-term missions with TEAM, and you’ll see He can do far more than you imagined.

Spend a summer discipling students at camp. Provide compassionate care at a hospital. Teach sustainable agriculture to struggling farmers. Intern in your field of study while earning school credit. Whatever your skills, passions or background, there’s an opportunity for you to share the love of Christ with people in need.

Check out our opportunities below to find the right one for you!  When you're ready to learn more, click here to talk with a missions coach.  

We’ll walk with you from beginning to end, providing quality training before you go and debriefing after your trip. And each short-term experience is designed to support long-term ministry, so you can be sure your impact will last!
