Short-term missions trips impact both the world (see Mark 16:15–20) and those who go on them (see Isaiah 43:10).
Bethany is partnering with key leaders throughout the world and sending teams to help encourage local churches and pastors, bring new people into relationship with Jesus, and leave a lasting impact. Stepping into the adventure of a missions trip will change your life forever. Though it requires a commitment of time, money, relationships, and emotions, it will give you a global perspective of what God is doing and stir up a passion inside of you. Be open to stepping out in faith and going on a short-term missions trip.
Join one of the many global outreach opportunities this year. The first step in doing this will be to fill out an application below. Once the application period is over, each trip will have their first team meeting to go over: fundraising, team preparation & meetings, and trip details.
We will be having an initial Missions meeting January 17 at 5pm at the Warehouse. This is an informational meeting for anyone who is either slightly interested in participating this year or you are definitely planning on going on a trip. Basically, come hear what Bethany Missions will look like in 2016 and see if it something you would like to be apart of.
