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.

Other Mission Opportunities
In addition to the trips we are able to do at Bethel Church we also partner with some organizations that GO on a more regular basis. We encourage you to visit their websites and see if God is leading you to serve Him through one of these organizations.
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 partnered with Masters Heart on a clean water initiative to benefit churches in Mozambique and South Africa.
International Messengers is an evangelical interdenominational missions organization comprised of an international staff team. They are committed to making disciples of all nations through partnering with local churches to renew, train and mobilize believers for active involvement in reaching the world for Christ. They believe that the spiritual revival of the Church is a primary key to effectively reaching this world with the love of Christ. They are committed to serving the local church, helping her move towards renewal, and then to again envision her central role in spreading the Gospel locally and globally. They see themselves as partners with the local church to equip and send people into the world with the truth of Jesus Christ.

Short Term Mission Opportunities with International Messengers – June, July, and August 2016
Our mission partners, Darwin & Darlis Anderson (International Messengers), had 4 short–term mission trips available that summer. There were camps planned for Romania, Slavakia, Jordan, and Egypt doing things from VBS programs with kids to family camps and sports camps as well as investing in youth and families through English language learning. These were great trips to get a taste of what International Messengers is doing overseas and get involved in what God is doing there.
