Short Term Missions Opportunities
Would you pray about joining one of these ministry teams? Is God stirring your heart by giving you a desire to be used by Him in new ways? Being part of a ministry team is hard work and will take you out of your comfort zone, but it will increase your faith and enlarge your perspective of what God is doing in the world. Review the information below and pray about which opportunity God is putting on your heart. If you have any questions contact Sam Brenize.
