Short Term Mission and Training
The World Mission Action Group encourages and supports members of the church family who may wish to experience and participate in mission on a short term basis, up to one year.
The church’s primary purpose through supporting short term mission activities is to strengthen national believers and/or evangelism to non-believers and/or to demonstrate our Christian faith through social action and humanitarian initiatives. Our secondary purpose is to mobilize and educate our constituency to be more missions active. However, we recognise that the main beneficiaries of short term mission are the participants themselves who we hope will gain a more global perspective in their future careers or look to work in missions long-term.
