Short Term Ministries
Hello from STM (Short Term Ministries Committee),
We are committed to providing opportunities for worldwide short term missions experiences and compassion ministries.
We are always looking for new ideas and places to send teams! If you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact us and let us know.

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 email@example.com.
The Short Term Ministries committee will not be able to provide any international trips in 2022. We will continue to monitor the global situation to see if there may be possibilities for 2023. One domestic trip is available for October 1-8, 2022 to Detroit. Much of this trip will include many different cultural experiences. The cost of the trip is $300 plus travel expenses. This includes everything except if you’re interested in any souvenirs or purchasing extra food.
The goal for these trips is to provide a cultural experience as well as work projects to help domestic ministries. We encourage individuals from small youth groups who do not have the availability of youth mission trips to apply. You will have an uplifting experience by sharing the Gospel and meeting other youth who are also interested in mission work. More information will be provided on our social media sites as it comes available. Questions can be directed to Marvin Troyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are ready to fill out an application for a future STM trip, you can download, print, fill it out, and mail it to the address on the application.
