Short-Term Missions Trips

1-2 Week Missions Trips in a wide variety of locations around the world

Throughout the year, missionaries partner with individuals and teams to serve with them in their local communities.

Short-term mission trips serve as cultural exchanges, broaden global perspectives, and offer tangible help to the people in the communities where Serge works – often forging lasting relationships among team members and with the local community.

Short-term trip opportunities include: 

  • Construction
  • English language camps and VBS clubs
  • Teaching/discipling of pastors and church leaders
  • Sports camps
  • Prayer weeks
  • Evangelism
  • Marriage and Parenting conferences
  • Vision Trips
  • Auto Mechanics
  • and more…

Why Go Short-Term with Serge?

Meaningful Projects
Support Long-Term Work

We want your trip to be beneficial as possible for all involved — your short-term team, your sending church, and your missionary and international partners. Every team we send participates in important, helpful work that is more than something we could accomplish through financial resources alone.


Frequently, short-term teams can be ineffective, or at worst harmful, to local communities and the materially poor. We see Short-Term teams as more than just an opportunity for spiritual tourism – but avenues that God uses to create lasting change in the lives of team members and the communities they serve.

Renewed Vision for
Missional Living

The effectiveness of a short-term team expands far beyond the scope of the weeks spent overseas. Through serving cross-culturally, you can joyfully re-encounter your own need for the gospel and bring renewed vision and excitement back to local mission engagement.

What They’re Saying

"Since going on my STT, my prayer life has expanded exponentially. Something was ignited in me and I want to dive deeper than ever before into my relationship with the Lord. The way the Lord used me over there was really special, but also a great reminder that I can have those moments and conversations in my daily life here [at home]."

Morgan Montrose

"Why not take 7 days? Allow those 7 days to change your heart and grow your vision of what God is doing in the world. He created the world in 7 days. Imagine the spiritual impact you can have on one person and what that can do. You could be talking to the next Paul or the next person who brings revival to this people group."

- WilliamGraphic Designer

"A short-term missions trip will give you a broader picture of the church universal. It's incredibly encouraging to see how the Lord is working in the world, not just in your local church, but to see and experience how the Spirit is moving in somebody else's culture. It changes how you worship. It changes the way you read the bible. It might change the way you see different churches in your neighborhood and how they are working together."

Michael VanDerLinden

Since going on my STT, I have more of an awareness of the need for the gospel, both in the lives of those who are lost, and in my life. I also have more passion for evangelism in my personal life, and actually taking the steps to engage people in conversation."
