Each year we work with our Global Outreach partners to determine which locations and ministries would benefit from having short-term teams come. Teams then work with these partner ministries to accomplish specific ministry objectives that would not otherwise be possible. Information about each team and resources to begin your application process are below.
If you have questions that can’t be answered on this page, contact Wanda for more information.
Financially Supporting GO Teams
If you would like to financially partner in sending one of our teams, you can give in two ways. To give online, indicate through the online form your gift is for a specific trip using the country name in the other field. To give via check, indicate in the memo which country your gift is for and mail your check to Bethel Church, Attn: Outreach, 2702 30th Ave S, Fargo, ND 58103. If team members are unable to participate or a trip is cancelled or more funds are collected than are needed for a trip, your gifts will be used to support the Global Outreach Ministry of Bethel.
Masters Heart Ministries is a local organization having a broad impact in Africa. Through their short term work in Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, they have established strong relationships with local churches. We encourage anyone at Bethel to consider joining their teams! In 2011-13, we are partnering with Masters Heart on a clean water initiative to benefit churches in Mozambique and South Africa. Read more about this effort on our Advent in Action page.
