Redeemer’s 2019 overseas short-term mission trips will be highlighted throughout the month of January. Short-term missions are an excellent way to jump start your spiritual growth and formation as a disciple of Jesus. This year we hope that more people than ever before will join these life-changing teams.
We have 10 trips scheduled, with the goal of sending up to 200 people to South Africa, Madagascar, Japan, Guatemala and more. Each team will consist of 10 to 20 people, who will serve in a cross-cultural context.
Short-term missions has operated under City to City in the past, but this year each church is sending out their own teams. Teammates will now serve alongside other Redeemerites from their same congregation. Further, each church hopes to strengthen their relationships with our international church hosts by returning to serve at the same locations year after year. This type of consistency allows for building strong bonds as our teams encourage and support the work of these host churches.
Redeemer mission trips will continue to travel to and serve the churches who are in the City to City network as they develop and implement social justice and mercy projects while spreading the love of Christ.
Past trips have included projects such as finance and business courses for local entrepreneurs, medical services, education initiatives, and hosting and assisting with outreach programs.
Want to learn more about serving on a short-term missions team? January 27 is Missions Sunday. Come to coffee hour to speak with alumni of these trips, who will be happy to discuss their personal experiences and answer questions.
Please consider a short-term trip in your 2019 plans. See you soon!
