Short Term Missions

The FBC Short Term Missions Task Force enables people from our body to go wherever the Lord desires. Our focus is on short term trips, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Our Missions Executive Task Force has identified a number of international areas where FBC can focus people and resources to have a significant and strategic impact, often in support of missionaries and missions organizations with whom we already partner.

The Short Term Missions Task Force will recruit and equip people who have (or desire to develop) specific talents, experiences, and skills, and will enable them to get into the mission field and back home safely. Our Task Force will train team members in fund raising, as our church is not able to bear the full cost of such ventures. We will also train in field security and safety, and cross cultural ministry.

TRIP COMMITMENTS

It is our desire to be good stewards, both financially and spiritually, of the resources that God has given us.  We also strive to prepare our teams to show unity in Christ and a heart of service to those we will meet. 

To help us achieve this, we require each team member to commit to: 

  • Contribute one's own funds for the trip, either through personal means or fundraising activities. 
  • Function as a full member of a missions team through participation in planning and preparation, respect and submission to the team’s leadership, and flexibility and humility in adapting to unforeseen circumstances
  • Live out their Christian life in personal devotion, Scripture study, prayer, and community life as a disciple of Jesus

NOT INCLUDED IN THE COST OF A SHORT TERM TRIP

  • Passports, visa, and passport photos
  • Prayer and fundraising letters and postage
  • Souvenirs
  • Personal meals separate from the team
  • Some tourist-type events (most team activities like sightseeing are included in the cost; you’ll be notified in advance of non-covered expenses). If, after times of prayer, your Lord is calling you to service, contact the Short Term Missions Task Force through the form below.
