Changed for Life: Short-Term Ministry Curriculum
The materials for hosts were written to help those who will host a short-term mission team think through all of the pieces of organizing a mission trip in their community. Because each mission site is different, these materials will need a great deal of contextualization (for example, a church in Uganda hosting a team will have very different needs than a church in Chicago hosting a team). We encourage you to think through which pieces are relevant to your community, and to think about which pieces might be missing, when planning to host a short-term mission team.
In this curriculum, we will talk about the various groups of people involved in a short-term mission experience: the short-term mission team and their leaders, the hosts who welcome a team to their community, the congregations who send short-term mission teams, and the partner agency. While many short-term mission teams travel without the assistance of a partner agency these days, we would highly encourage you to consider using such an agency. We’ve developed a list of what partner agencies can offer short-term mission teams and why we think they are a critical piece of planning a short-term mission experience.
