SHORT TERM MISSION TRIPS

It has been said that short term missions opens the eyes of the soul; this truth, along with the opportunity to show and share the Gospel to a lost and dying world makes short term trips at Faith very exciting. Our passion is to strengthen existing evangelical efforts and create new efforts all over the globe for the cause of Christ. We believe in relational partnerships and anticipate reconnecting with current mission partners year after year to experience the fruits of salvation and discipleship.

The Missions Ministry at Faith aspires to be good stewards of the finances we have been entrusted with by our church family. Any and all financial process has been carefully put in place with that goal in mind.

Interest Meetings will take place 150 days (5 months) before the trip
