Short-term mission. Long-term vision.

We provide you with global opportunities to explore ministry and vocation as an expression of the Kingdom of God. We are witness that the Spirit is active and moving through short-term efforts and it is our hope that you will creatively utilize your unique gifts and passion as you share the gospel through service and ministry. Our long-term strategy ensures our volunteers go back year after year, joining the same communities, deepening relationships, and developing best practices for engagement.
