Arise Teams

About Arise Teams

Arise teams are specifically for women. We believe that women who are equipped to live boldly for the gospel are a key to unlocking movements of the gospel in the world’s spiritually darkest places. That is why we want to give you the opportunity to put your faith into action by joining Arise on the mission field this year!

On an Arise Team, you can experience God’s hand at work among the unreached as lives change forever—yours included. East-West’s weeklong teams are evangelism focused and work in partnership with national churches and long-term missionaries. Together, we work to reach their communities with the gospel.

“‘However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.’”
–Acts 20:24

What to Expect on Arise Teams

Spiritual Growth

This trip is about taking the message of Christ to people who have never had the opportunity to hear and respond to it. You’ll be reliant on the Holy Spirit daily and experience spiritual growth like never before as you travel to evangelize the lost. 


Nothing unites believers quite like a short-term mission team, especially when you’re reliant on each other for spiritual and physical encouragement. Mornings start with team devotionals, prayer, and briefings. Evenings are spent sharing stories from your day of ministry. 

Gospel Impact

You’ll witness God use you to seek and save the lost throughout the week. Throughout the trip, you’ll discover how God can use your gifts and have opportunities to share the gospel with unbelievers.


Daily you will be overwhelmed by the beauty of God’s creation as you have an opportunity to visit places you’ve never been before. The sights and sounds of the landscape and the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture is an adventure of a lifetime. 

Arise Extreme Teams

Arise offers several Extreme Teams throughout the year. These teams blend our passion for the gospel with your love of the outdoors. Over a week’s time, you’ll work alongside national partners to scale mountains with the sole purpose of bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to people living in the world’s most remote locations. 

The physical challenge, spiritual growth, team bonding, gospel impact, and adventure of an Arise Extreme Team makes this a unique experience you will always remember.
