Global Teams

We are passionate about the call to go out into the world and make disciples of all nations. We have many opportunities locally and globally to make a difference in the world and to share the love and the message of Jesus Christ. Please take a look below on how you can serve on a local or global mission trip:

Austria

September 2-14, 2018

Mission: TCM International Institute develops Christian leaders through graduate education so that they can more effectively influence their churches, cultures, and countries for Christ. 
TCM comes alongside native Christians who have a passion for reaching their own countries for Christ. Through their institute they can develop a Christian leader for ministry for only 1% of the cost it would take to send a U.S. missionary to that same country. Since these individuals already know the cultures and languages, they are able to have successful ministries and are equipped for a lifetime of service.
TCM’s main teaching facility, Haus Edelweiss, is located in Vienna, Austria. In order to keep ministry costs at a minimum, TCM brings in mission teams to work within the Haus Edelweiss facilities. A week serving at Haus Edelweiss could look like many different things: you might find yourself working in the kitchen, helping on the grounds, doing routine maintenance, or cleaning their facilities. All types of service are needed in order to keep TCM running efficiently!

NOTE: Application is due at the first team meeting on May 6, 2018

    Mexico

    October 14-20, 2018

    Mission: Casas por Cristo relies on the labor and resources of
    full time staff missionaries, a board of over 100 pastors and community leaders from Mexico, Guatemala and Dominican Republic, and nearly 7,000 annual volunteers from across North America. Through these cross-cultural partnerships, volunteer teams are presented with an amazing opportunity to build a home for a family in need.
    Come and join us in showing God’s love and faithfulness to a family in need. During this one-week experience you will transform an otherwise empty lot into a safe and secure home – complete with cement foundation, electricity, windows and doors. Each family receives a tangible symbol of the faithfulness and unconditional love of Jesus Christ. As a volunteer, you will gain perspective on the extreme poverty that exists in our world. You will also be blessed to see how you’ve changed the world for this family. As a result, these families better understand God’s plan for their
    lives and His deep desire to take care of their needs.

        Nehemiah Vision Ministries is committed to seeing Haitians move from darkness to light; from hopelessness to eternal life. Their vision is to see Haitians living productive lives and rebuilding Haiti. A vital part of this vision is Short Term Mission Teams. Teams are helping build toward this vision through their four pillars of Leadership Development, Education, Healthcare, and Economic Empowerment. Supporting all of the pillars, and ultimately the vision, is a foundation of Spiritual Development.
