Short Term Missions

Why We Go:

  • To obey Christ’s command in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).
  • To aid and build up the ministry of the local Church and our missionaries.
  • To reach the unreached and the unengaged with the gospel.
  • To develop a deeper awareness of the breadth and depth of the body of Christ.
  • To be personal witnesses to the world of our life in Christ.

Where We Go:

  • To visit Scottsdale Bible missionaries and work alongside, encourage and assist them in accomplishing their ministry goals.
  • To serve and be a blessing to the Global Church.
  • To areas of natural disasters where practical and compassionate care is needed.

What We Do:

  • Because we go to serve long-term & existing ministries, we will serve as our partner Churches/missionaries have need. Some of these serving opportunities are: teaching, equipping, evangelism, and counseling; health care and education; men’s, women’s, and children’s ministries (VBS); music outreach, construction projects, & Bible distribution.
