Short-term mission teams play a crucial role in fulfilling the service God has called Partners in Christ (PIC) to accomplish. These teams, comprised of individuals from US-based church congregations or other Christian groups, unite under a common calling and work closely with local pastors and our stateside director to plan and execute their week of ministry.
While each mission team's activities and events can vary, they all share a focus on evangelizing and discipling the communities they serve alongside the local pastor. Depending on the team's spiritual gifts and the needs of the Central American church, their mission may involve diverse tasks such as leading Vacation Bible School programs or organizing medical clinics. Teams often engage in ministry within local schools, visit community homes, repair or expand church buildings, and participate in church services together with the local pastor.
After an exhilarating, emotional, and challenging mission trip, team members consistently express how deeply blessed they feel and eagerly anticipate planning their next trip to serve again.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil 1:3-6
