Short Term Ministry Trips

Each trip is individually built to first and foremost serve God, and then serve both the volunteer, and the ones being served.

Some of the benefits of going on a trip with STM are:

  • You are able to serve the Lord, edify the church, and gain missionary exposure and experience
  • Come along side full time missionaries in a helpful way; assisting them in their long term work
  • Have the opportunity to experience how 80% of the world lives
  • Open yourself up to the possibility to go into full time missions
  • Have your world view expanded and catch a vision to support missionaries with prayer and financial support

Our Ultimate goal is to honor and glorify God by partnering with His missionaries all over the world and join them in advancing His kingdom.

In a more practical way we plan, organize, and facilitate short-term, God honoring trips. We develop new, and embrace current opportunities for believers of all ages to exercise and grow their gifts while directly investing in the Kingdom of God.

We encourage personal sacrifice in paying for the trip but also look for local church involvement through prayer and financial giving. If you are interested in any of these trip or short-term missions other than those listed here, please contact Marvin Troyer at vmcchair@gmail.com.

2021 Trips

These service opportunities are provided by the Short Term Ministries Committee, an arm of Biblical Mennonite Alliance.

Unfortunately, current events have put a damper on international mission trips. The committee has put together two opportunities stateside for your consideration. 

We encourage personal sacrifice in paying for the trip but also look for local church involvement through prayer and financial giving. If you are interested in any of these trips or short-term missions other than those listed here, please contact Marvin Troyer at vmcchair@gmail.com.
