We invite you to take advantage of the opportunities we have for you to go and serve globally, sharing the hope of the gospel cross-culturally, both in the U.S. and around the world! Our short term mission experiences are purposefully connected to long term mission efforts, to maximize impact and to foster long term relationships.
The 2018/2019 WACC Short Term Missions season will begin with the "Go Global Fair" on Sunday, September 23rd on the upper patio in between services. At the fair, you can pick up a flyer to find out what trips are being offered and to talk to a trip representative to find out more information. Teams are formed for the majority of the overseas trips by the end of November at the latest. Most overseas trips take place over the summer.
I understand that submitting this application shows my interest in being considered for this trip and that if accepted I agree to: participate in all team commitments for team trips (trainings, fundraisers, debriefing), raise or provide all needed funding for my trip, and be held to a standard of Christ-like behavior leading up to and throughout my time serving in a missions capacity.
