SHORT TERM MISSIONS

Short term missions change you and change the world as you engage with different people, work hard and experience God meeting needs in the most miraculous ways.

We need to be straight up about this – they are not sanctified holidays.  When you join a Reach Beyond short term team you are committing to hard work, prayer and sacrifice and in return you will see God work like never before.   We are also committed to having fun while we work and you will find joining one of our teams a really positive, life-changing experience.

Our teams are lead by Russell, our Executive Director.  Russell has over 30 years experience in missions and leading short term teams.  He has lead mission trips to the Pacific Islands, Eastern Europe, Africa and South America.

 

Why short term missions at Reach Beyond? 

  • Because you go beyond words by getting your hands dirty serving those most in need 
  • Because you go beyond borders by being immersed in a totally different culture and life experience. 
  • Because you go beyond yourself by stepping into the unknown and then watching God do amazing things in you and through you.

One mission trip and you will never the same again!
