What is the mission trip experience all about?

A short-term mission trip is an exciting, engaging experience in which faith is put into action by partnering with brothers and sisters from different cultures and life experiences.

Participation in a mission trip offers you and your church group a chance to share your time and talents with mission partners from other countries and other cultures and to learn, worship and serve together.

Equipping for Mission Involvement is the PC(USA) World Mission program that provides resources that will help you and your mission partners to see themselves with new eyes as, together, you cross cultural and spiritual borders.  When you return home, we can help you to continue the growth you experienced on your trip  in a variety of ways.

How do you decide on the destination for a mission trip?

God has a place in mission for your group that will fit almost everyone’s needs, capabilities, interests, ability to travel, budget and time.

Deciding on your mission trip destination is a discernment process that should include your congregation’s or presbytery’s mission committee and other groups interested in mission service.  We encourage you to think of the mission trip not as an end unto itself, but as one step on a journey of deeper engagement in the global mission of the church. The questions in this document will help your group to select a destination.
