Sending short-term mission teams

Your church can experience God’s Hand at work among the unreached overseas as lives change forever … theirs’ included. Our short-term mission teams are evangelism focused as we partner with local believers to reach their communities for Christ.

But evangelism is only the beginning. Our national partners follow up with every new believer to equip them to grow in their faith, and share with others, creating an unending chain of impact.

Prior to departure, each participant spends nine hours with our staff learning about the culture and how to best reach the region they are serving with the gospel. East-West plans all travel, lodging and ministry logistics. Your congregation simply gives God their “yes” to serve overseas.

How We Serve Your Team

We work alongside you to provide the highest level of excellence in the planning and coordination of your short-term mission team. As a partner with us, our team coordinates…

  • Transportation and lodging 
  • Visas
  • Travel insurance
  • Team training
  • Team leadership
  • Communication with the field
  • Support-raising materials, including a fundraising packet and online profile

Where You Can Go With East-West

Interested in joining us on the field for a week? East-West offers several types of short-term mission teams, including:

  • Evangelism Teams: We take teams of 10-15 door-to-door in unreached cities to engage in spiritual conversations about the gospel of Jesus Christ. 
  • Student Teams: We take high school and college students to expose them to the world of missions and grow them in evangelism. 
  • Children’s Ministry Teams: We take individuals with a heart for children to build relationships with the next generation through gospel-oriented games and activities.
  • Extreme Teams: We take people who love the outdoors to the Himalayas on backpacking trips to share the gospel with some of the world’s most remote people. 
  • Muslim Outreach Teams: We take believers with a passion for the Muslim world to Islamic strongholds to evangelize using the Quran.
We currently take short-term mission teams to Africa, Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.
