Short Term Missions

Short Term Missions

Short-term missions is a win-win for eternity. Participants typically return from the field with a deepened Christian commitment while their efforts complement long-term Alliance ministries and workers.

”Short-term missionaries proved long ago that they make a significant contribution to the cause of Christ,” — Peter N. Nanfelt, former C&MA president

Ministering to the least of these

Every year, thousands of Alliance people travel overseas to participate in short-term missions and connect with Alliance long-term missions efforts impacting overseas churches in dynamic ways!

From building churches and Bible schools to leading evangelistic services or providing technical computer support, the opportunities are limited only by your calling!

We can help you connect to any of the international ministries of The C&MA that are in need of short term mission teams.

Now what?

Envision is a movement within the C&MA that specializes in missional engagement, equipping followers of Jesus to live well in a post-everything world. The two main branches of Envision are Sites and Labs.

Our 20 Sites provide opportunities to participate in what God is doing around the world-whether it’s through connecting with local churches, serving in urban settings, or bringing social justice to dark places. Participants experience discipleship working with and serving under long-term workers who are pioneering, building, and leading impactful ministries in their cities.

Our Labs are specific experiences tailored to shape leadership and faith. Envision’s 3 Labs are Films, Campaigns, and Summit. Films explores the intersection of faith and culture. Campaigns offers tangible ways to make a difference in social justice issues. Summit is a yearly gathering that provides young influencers with a week-long leadership experience in an international setting.
