In every corner of the world, God is at work. If you'd like to be a part of seeing God's Kingdom work in another cultural setting—while using the gifts, talents, and skills you have to offer—we invite you to explore a one-to-two-week GO Team.
Each year, eight to ten short-term missions trips are formed to meet specific needs of our 90+ missionaries and partners. These global adventures allow us to help our own global workers who are already strategically placed, culturally aware, and on the ground advancing God's Kingdom.
Come walk alongside our missionaries and partners where they serve around the world!
