Mission Exposure | Short-Term Mission Opportunities

SMI mobilizes three short-term teams a year.  The teams participate in various activities based on the need of our ministry partners.  Some of the teams have worked at orphanages, helped lead and teach conferences, constructed buildings, remodeled facilities, taught English, participated in outreaches and many other projects.

The goal of short-term trips is:

  • SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE our international partners
  • SHARE THE GOSPEL by meeting practical needs and through evangelistic-based meetings and events
  • BUILD on the relationships and foundation laid by previous team members
  • PROVIDE believers and churches in the U.S. and opportunity for exposure to foreign missions
