The Global Ministries Commission encourages our EC people to take advantage of the Short Term Mission Opportunities that are available all around the world. E.C. Global Ministries cooperates with 18 mission agencies, most of whom offer short term opportunities of various time lengths all over the world.
In addition, the Global Ministries Commission sponsors numerous work teams throughout the year. Currently we send two teams each summer that serve in Alaska with Victory Ministries. Each team goes for two weeks. The two teams serve in mid July – mid August at Camp LIWA, which is just outside of Fairbanks. The cost of these teams is only the cost of the airfare. The camp provides room and board in exchange for an 8-hour work day. Opportunities for sightseeing can easily be arranged, but are an additional cost.
Dates for 2017 are August 6 - 19. We are only sponsoring one work team for this year.
Applications can be downloaded from this website, or you can call or email email@example.com for applications.
Short Term Mission Application
A deposit of $200 will be due at the time of application. This will go towards airfare. All monies for plane tickets are due before tickets will be ordered, and tickets are non-refundable.
Here are some opportunities with OMS, one of our co-operating mission agencies we work with. This is a ministry geared for men. It is with Men for Missions, a branch of OMS but they do take a number of women.
Contact OMS directly if interested:

The EC Short Stops is published twice a year, in April and October, to make our members aware of opportunities available and what other individuals/churches have done. We hope that you will use this information to network with others as you consider how God may be calling you into short term missions service.
