Serge’s short-term mission teams serve for 1-2 weeks in a wide variety of locations around the world.
Throughout the year, missionaries request assistance from individuals and teams to serve with them in their local communities. These short-term mission trips serve as cultural exchanges, widen global perspectives, and give tangible help to the people in communities where Serge works.
Types of team service include:
- English language camps and VBS clubs
- Teaching/discipling of pastors and church leaders
- Sports camps
- Prayer weeks
Why Go Short-Term with Serge?
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
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.
2021-2022 Short-Term Trips
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 Coronavirus pandemic, that looks like moving forward with 2021-2022 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.
Thank you for engaging this tension with us.

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."”Dwayne Noble
