If you are interested in exploring whether long-term, cross-cultural ministry is what God is calling you to pursue, consider a short-term trip with World Team. The experience of a short-term trip is designed to help you further your understanding of how your gifts, abilities and passions could fit with long-term ministry. Get started by telling us about yourself.

World Team offers one-week to four-month opportunities around the world that can cover a variety of areas of study and experience, including youth ministry, English as a Second Language (ESL), sports ministry, music ministry and more. You will participate in life and ministry alongside career missionaries who will mentor you and help you understand what you are experiencing.

Join World Team this summer and go where the gospel is needed! These opportunities are for students who want to stretch themselves and grow in their understanding of God’s mission. So make a bold decision to change your life and the lives of others by serving the Lord somewhere new. Download a map of the Short-Term process.
