Due to COVID-19, our short-term missions ministry has been suspended for 2021. No later than early next year, we plan to make a decision about possible trips in 2022.
The Short-Term Missions ministry coordinates teams to work alongside international organizations, church plants and missionaries to assist and serve them in whatever capacity is needed. These trips focus on efforts such as microfinance and teaching initiatives, Faith & Work conferences, medical work, disaster relief and construction. The goal is to encourage and support the work of the international church and engage and learn from the local culture. Although some trips have a mercy ministry component, Missions does not operate as a humanitarian organization.
Our vision for Missions comes directly out of Redeemer’s vision as a church. We hope to ignite a movement of the gospel that brings personal conversion, community formation, social justice, and cultural renewal throughout the world.
To develop and maintain a Missions-sending program that maximizes the gifts and resources of the Redeemer community. Teammates seek to fulfill the Great Commission and to extend God's love, mercy and justice wherever we go.
