Short-Term

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

COVID-19 UPDATE:

As an organization centered around a calling to lay down our lives, we are dedicated to pursuing opportunities to mobilize the next generation into missions. Within the context of the 2020 global pandemic, that looks like moving forward with 2021 short-term trips while continuing to wisely monitor the progression and impact of COVID-19 on international travel. We’re faithfully pursuing prayer and seeking input from a gathered team of professionals qualified to speak into decisions surrounding the pandemic; we also believe the Kingdom of God is still being built and he is actively calling people to join him in the work he’s doing worldwide. Thanks for engaging this tension with us.
