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.

SBC has made a major commitment to minister to leaders throughout Europe by sending logistical support teams to the annual European Leadership Forum in Poland.


Poland: European Leadership Forum (ELF)

Description: Most Christians don’t think of Europe as a spiritually needy continent, but just 3% of Europeans identify themselves as evangelicals. The European Leadership Forum is a strategic effort to train, encourage and strengthen Europe’s evangelical leaders who often serve in antagonistic and isolated environments. The members of SBCs volunteer team provide the support to make the Forum a success. It is an energizing, humbling and unforgettable experience!
