Short-Term Teams

Crossing Cultures to Serve and to Grow

Serge’s long-term mission teams serve in a wide variety of locations around the world. Throughout the year, missionaries request assistance from individuals and teams who serve with them in their local communities from one to two weeks. These opportunities serve as cultural exchanges, widen global perspectives, and give real help to the people in communities where Serge works.

 Types of team service include: 

  • construction
  • English language camps
  • sports camps
  • evangelistic camps and other activities
  • prayer weeks
