Mission trips can be a vital part of your church.
They provide an opportunity for your church to …
- Encourage your congregation to evangelize
- Connect with unreached people
- Provide tangible support
- Support churches and ministries around the world
- Provide relief for workers
Many churches (maybe yours?) send their members on mission trips every year. According to one study, more than one million people participate in a short-term mission trip every year.
If you’ve managed any mission trip before (short- or long-term), you know it ain’t easy.
Sending a group of people anywhere requires a tremendous amount of work:
- Pick a destination and project
- Partner with an individual or organization
- Encourage people to participate
- Arrange for travel and lodging
- Ensure paperwork is complete
- Prepare participants
- Raise financial support
To pull off a mission trip, it can easily take dozens of hours.
From managing spreadsheets, sending emails and group text messages, and ensuring everyone is ready to go, you have to juggle several balls at once.
Thankfully, this is no longer the case.
You don’t have to spend countless hours managing mission trips.
Instead, you can spend more time preparing in prayer, team building, and training.
Let me show you how.
