Short-term mission

Short-term placements offer many people at all stages of life the opportunity to serve God overseas from a few weeks to a couple of years.  Whether you are a young adult considering a gap year, coming up to retirement wondering how you might use your time, looking for an opportunity to serve as a team from your church, or taking a career break and would like to use it to do something different - there is a wide range of options available to you.

Questions to ask

Short-term involvement is a great way to see and feel the needs around the world and perhaps even test a call to long-term service.
If you are considering getting involved in short-term mission, you need to think through what you have to offer, why you want to go, and where, and be aware of some of the possible pitfalls.
Avoiding unrealistic expectations of what we can achieve that may lead to us seeing mission just as an activity or an event.
