Ministry and Training to Reach the Unreached

Missions Trips

Lift up your eyes to the harvest “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” (John 4:35 NKJV).

In Mark 16:15 all believers are commanded to go into the world and preach the gospel. Christ gave this command to every believer. It is not a choice or only a call to the clergy.

In keeping with this command you have the opportunity to be part of ministry through missions and tourism. We have the opportunity to facilitate low cost mission and tour trips. God has opened doors for us to organize trips for those with larger or smaller budgets according to the means God provides.

We have four main categories and other sub-categories describing the various ministry opportunities available:

1. Adaptable Mission Opportunities

Perhaps your church desires to serve in a particular area according to your own resources, talent, and expertise. We can work with you to adapt a mission trip that enables you and your church to serve abroad according your own unique calling. This could include but is not limited to: children’s ministry, campus ministry, various areas of training, translation, etc.

A-  Long term mission trips

  • We make contact with your country of focus as we have connections and availability.
  • We focus on finding needs/available positions according to your intended area of service (i.e. teacher, doctor, nurse, church planter, pastor, etc.).
  • We help you make a budget/fundraising plan outlining expected costs and what you will really need to go to this country to minister.
  • We maintain consistent communication with you and our contacts in your country of focus.

B-  Short term mission trips

  • We organize mission trips in many different places in the world, especially in the Middle East.
  • Depending on the time and place God is leading you to visit, we can work with you to arrange your participation on a group trip with a local church or other entity.
  • We endeavor to tailor the scheduled trip activities according to the budget available.

C-  Planning your mission trip

  • Some people do not know where they should go or even how much money they would need to spend to make mission work a reality. If you have a vision in your heart for missions, contact us and we will endeavor to work with you to fulfill what God has put in your heart for His glory. We offer flexible opportunities to help you to fulfill God’s call on your life.

 

2. Tourism

  • If you are not ready to commit to a mission trip, but would be interested in touring a country to get more exposure, we can help you plan a guided tour in your country of interest that is in line with your budget.

 

3. Mission and Tour

  • In this category, you can do both ministry and tourism.
  • Here, your main thrust is missions in your target country, but your trip will include some scheduled tours as well.
  • The ministry/tour schedule will depend on the type of ministry you will be doing, how many days you plan to spend in the country, and your set budget for the trip.

 

4. Tour and Mission

  • In this category, you can also do both ministry and tourism, but your main thrust will be tourism, with some exposure to mission work.
  • Here, your purpose may be to survey the culture/area to prepare for a long term trip while also obtaining some exposure in your future service area.
  • Again, the tour/ministry schedule will depend on the type of ministry you will be doing, how many days you plan to spend in the country, and your set budget for the trip.

 

How is all of this possible?

We DO NOT do of these things by ourselves. God has blessed us with a variety of partnerships to be facilitators for greater work in the Kingdom of God. We are always looking for more people, churches, institutions, individuals, and other ministry groups to work with us. We are looking for:

  • Churches to work with us and support this ministry
  • Institutions that can work with us in donating items to meet felt needs and help reach those in desperate circumstances
  • Individuals with a heart to fulfill the Great Commission
  • Ministry/humanitarian groups from various places to help by giving of their time, resources, etc.
  • Indigenous people across various countries and increased relationships in our countries of focus to better reach the least reached people groups of the world

 

Why do we focus on the Middle East?

The answer is to be part of God’s unfolding plan in that part of the world! We also have to answer the call He has given us as a family.

We believe that God has a special plan for the Middle East. Since the beginning of time, God has been working in the Middle East from the Garden of Eden to Israel; the land of God’s chosen Old Testament people through whom Jesus, the Son of God, came to us. Today this part of the world continues to be the hot seat of international turmoil and debate and it is also the area of fulfilled end times Bible prophecy.

Of course, God has a plan for all countries and people groups, desiring that all be saved and come to knowledge of the truth (1 Tim. 2:4, Rev. 7:9). However, the Middle East continues to be integral in international politics and in God’s plan according to Scripture.

I want to encourage you and your church to be a part this plan. When you go to the Middle East and experience the places you have read about in the Bible, you will never be the same. You will also have the opportunity to touch the descendants of both Isaac and Ishmael who are in desperate need to be reconciled both to God and to each other through the restorative power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
